In today's encore post, Authorpreneur Karen Myers explains why indie authors need to keep learning and expanding their indie author business activity in order to remain vibrant, profitable and dynamic in an increasingly diverse publishing marketplace. She draws on examples of opportunities she has seized upon to grow her expertise, her reach and her reputation, while continuing to write and publish her own series of fantasy and sci-fi novels.
It’s that time of year again. #SelfPubCon is launching the Fall 2019 Self-Publishing Advice Conference. The theme is Sell More Books. Behind the scenes we’ve been preparing the conference. This post from Conference Manager (she manages this blog too!) Sacha Black tells you everything you need to know.

What is #SelfPubCon?
#SelfPubCon is a twenty-four-hour FREE online conference. We deliver stacks of content, interviews and presentations, a new one on the hour each hour throughout the day. The Fall 2019 #selfpubcon is going to be no different.
The theme for the Fall 2019 conference is ‘Sell More Books.’
To make an indie author career out of writing, selling books is vital. But the mechanics of doing that shift and change with market fluctuations and technological advancements. This conference will bring you the most up-to-date tactics to help you sell more books, whether ebooks, paperbacks or audiobooks, in your home country and across the world.
Call for Speakers
If you’re a member of ALLi and interested in being a speaker or presenter, we’re officially open for proposals. We have a short submission form which you can find here. Proposal deadline is June 15th.
Ideally, we’re looking for content that supports helping indie authors sell more books, in the form of a video voiced-over PowerPoint-style presentation between thirty and sixty minutes in length. Any submissions received after July 15, 2019 cannot be guaranteed a place in the conference.
Call for Sponsors
If you’re an ALLi partner member, or a self-publishing service provider who is keen to help us add value to the tens of thousands of indie authors from around the globe attending our free online conference, we’d like to hear from you.
To start the conversation, reach out to Boni Wagner-Stafford at [email protected].
