ALLi Insights Generic LogoOrna Ross is hosting a live Google+ Q&A event with Katie Donelan from BookBub. 

Each month Orna chats with experts and entrepreneurs from her indie author network. Each indie author's journey is different, and the key to making the best decisions is knowing what self-publishig options are available.

In this month's ALLi Insights we'll be discovering how authors can increase their chances of being selected for a BookBub promotion and what types of submission criteria the Bookbub editors consider. Orna and Katie will also be looking at which price points work best and the impact of genre in the selection process.
