On the ALLi Twitter chat (#indieAuthorChat) this week we asked questions about So How Was 2020 for You?
This year has been difficult for many of us across the globe and industry. The pandemic has caused disruption for families, businesses and creativity alike. As we draw close to the end of the year, the Alliance of Independent Authors team looks back at 2020, both the difficulties and the successes as well as what may come next. This is the Alliance of Independent Authors Self-Publishing Review 2020.
A to-do list works as a planning method only for those writers who have third-party publishers (and other people whose job is straightforward and singular). If all you have to do today, tomorrow, and forever is get words done, drafted and delivered, then a list will serve you just fine. But indie authors are creative directors of an author-publishing business, a much more complex endeavor.
It’s a new year! Which (for those who love to plan) means it’s time to start planning for 2020. ALLi Author member, Rachel McCollin shows you how to identify your writing goals so you can plan the best writing year you've had.
This New Year is special as it marks not just the changing of a year but the start of a new decade. And how things change in a decade. It's hard to believe that barely more than a decade ago the iPhone was a new fangled piece of technology. But here we are a decade later with a plethora of technology at our fingertips. Today, ALLi director Orna Ross looks not to the past, but to the future, to 2020 and the decade to come. Here are her self-publishing predictions for 2020 and the 2020s.
As 2019 draws to a close, it's time to look towards 2020 and the start of both a New Year and a new decade. In November, We asked ALLi Members a question: what will you do differently in 2020? There were a huge range of answers, here's some of the highlights.
December has seen the ALLi team look back at the year and review the highs and lows. Today is the slightly different. Instead of looking back at the fiction and nonfiction podcast during 2019, Sacha Black and Adam Croft (the podcast's 2020 hosts) look to the New Year and the upcoming topics.
