Welcome to AskALLi, the Self-Publishing Advice Podcast from the Alliance of Independent Authors. This week it’s our monthly Member Q&A in which ALLi Members have their most pressing self-publishing questions analyzed and answered. Join your regular hosts for the Member Q&A: Michael La Ronn and Dan Blank.
Questions answered this month include:
- If I publish a 2nd edition of my book, do I need to register the copyright again?
- How should I set up my publishing company (sole trader/proprietor, LLC/Limited, etc)
- Will my ISBNs transfer to my new company if I previously published as a sole proprietor/trader?
- What do I do if I get a “quality notice” from Amazon alleging that my book has too many errors? Help!
- If I contract a cover designer to do my cover, am I limited to how many books I can sell before having to pay them again?
- What is the best way to distribute ARCs to readers?
- What universal book linking site do you recommend to send readers to their local Amazon site instead of using Amazon.com or .co.uk links every time?
- How do I price my book?
