Self-publishing 3.0 (#publishwide) is both a concept and a campaign.

The self-publishing 3.0 concept is that, thanks to digital technology, any author who has acquired the necessary skills in writing, publishing, and business can now build a sustainable and scalable creative business over time.

Making full use of all the opportunities provided by digital publishing (including innovations like the blockchain) has the potential to deliver true creative and commercial independence to authors. It could also revolutionize the books trade, making publishing an author-led industry. It would complete the self-publishing revolution started by Amazon back in 2008, returning publishing to authors.

Description

Self-publishing 3.0 (#publishwide) is both a concept and a campaign.

The self-publishing 3.0 concept is that, thanks to digital technology, any author who has acquired the necessary skills in writing, publishing, and business can now build a sustainable and scalable creative business over time.

The campaign has two main aims:
1. Promoting author education around the realities of successful self-publishing and the development of three skill sets: writing, digital publishing, and author business.

2. Promoting publishing-influencer education around the realities of what it is to be an author in today’s digital and entrepreneurial environment. To that end, ALLi approaches various government bodies, creative industry leaders, and other influencers in the publishing and bookselling industries, aiming to create a more informed conversation about the indie author experience and facilitate skills training.

This campaign encourages authors:

  • Towards an empowered and independent mindset.
  • Towards the realization that they are in business and can learn from other authors how to write well, publish well and run a good author business.
  • To own their own transactional e-commerce websites while also using online retailers, other publishers, and publishing services to distribute their books as widely as possible, in as many formats as possible.
  • To ensure they have a diversity of income streams, including direct sales, subscription models, crowdsourced patronage, and income from other activities like online teaching and affiliate income (learn more).
  • To see trade publishing as an author service. An independent author sits down to a publishing offer with an informed and empowered mindset, expecting a partnership of equals which should be reflected in the publishing contract.
  • To beware of exclusivity and take control of their author businesses rather than putting all their intellectual property into any single business owned by another.
  • To be aware of the value of their intellectual property and creative assets.
  • To relish the freedom and control inherent in being an indie author. To recognize the opportunities provided by today’s digital tech and tools, welcome the challenges of developing the art and craft of writing and publishing, and take pride in being the creative and commercial director of their books and their business.

Making full use of all the opportunities provided by digital publishing (including innovations like the blockchain) has the potential to deliver true creative and commercial independence to authors. It could also revolutionize the books trade, making publishing an author-led industry. It would complete the self-publishing revolution started by Amazon back in 2008, returning publishing to authors.
