Our Communications Manager, Jay Artale, has put together a roundup of our Ask ALLi and Indie Author Fringe podcasts, and coaxes us to take time for ourselves over the festive season to listen and be inspired.
Take a Walk, Listen to a Podcast
This time of year is all about time with family and friends and possibly eating to much. As the majority of authors I know are this side of introverted, there will be some time during the festive season where you may want to just get away from other human beings for a short while, and walk to recharge your social batteries.
I've migrated to Los Angeles for the winter and have been doing a daily 6 mile walks along the beach. These walks are excellent for clearing the head, and I've been using the time to give some of our Ask ALLi and Indie Author podcasts a second spin.
I like this uninterrupted time to listen and process thoughts as I walk, and I seem to be able to absorb the advice and inspiration better when I multi-task exercise and listening together, rather than passive listening in the comfort of an armchair.
Ask ALLi Podcast
Each month Orna Ross and Joanna Penn answer questions from our ALLi members about writing, self-publishing and being and author. These monthly podcasts not only offer advice to authors, but also include inspiration from Orna and Joanna as they navigate the self-publishing waters for themselves (newest podcasts at the bottom of the list):
