Creative Self-Publishing: ALLi’s Guide to Independent Publishing for Authors and Poets is a foundational guidebook for self-publishing writers. Drawing on Orna Ross’s experience as an indie author and as founder-director of the Alliance of Independent Authors, the book takes an individual approach, centred on you: your ambitions, your passions, your sense of purpose, and your creative skills.

Whatever kind of books you write, self-publishing is a business, and one of the things that makes this self-publishing guide unique is its focus on applying the same creativity that fuels your writing to your publishing. Including a history of authorship and author-publishing, a deep-dive into the seven processes of publishing, and a proven sequence of success that works for all authors, it continuously brings the challenges back to where you find yourself, right here and now.

Exercises in each chapter provide experiments, explorations and experiential learning that guide you through the process of producing your books, your way. The creative way.

Whether you write literary or genre fiction, creative or practical nonfiction, intellectual or colloquial poetry, the principles and practices outlined in this book will empower you to produce great books, reach more readers, and earn a good living as an indie author or poet.

Description

Creative Self-Publishing: ALLi’s Guide to Independent Publishing for Authors and Poets is the first book in the Alliance of Independent Authors’ Publishing Guides series, a foundational guidebook for writers who publish their own books, and those who aspire to this dream.

This comprehensive guide is also a publishing memoir from a novelist and poet who was an early advocate for author empowerment through self-publishing. While it draws on Orna Ross’s years of experience as founder and director of the Alliance of Independent Authors, the book takes an individual approach, beginning with you. Your ambitions, your passion and your sense of purpose not just as a writer, but also as a publisher, and as a creative business owner.

One of the book’s core themes is that whatever kind of books you write, self-publishing is a business, and must be approached as such. The book offers a summary of the eleven creative business models currently being used by independent authors and exercises in each chapter embed the theory as practice, providing experiments, explorations and experiential learning around the theories, tools and techniques offered.

Another unique aspect of this book is its focus on applying your creative skills not just to your writing but also the publishing and business aspects of the job. Including a history of authorship and author-publishing, a deep-dive into the seven processes of publishing–from editorial and design to book promotion and rights licensing–and a proven sequence of success that works for all authors, it always brings the challenges back to where you find yourself, right now.

Whether you write literary or genre fiction, creative or practical nonfiction, intellectual or colloquial poetry, the principles and practices outlined in this book will work for you, giving you what you need to know in order to produce great books, find your readers, turn them into fans, and earn a good living as a self-directed, author-publisher. 

The creative way.
