Every single day, our members are achieving their dreams and reaching new heights in their author businesses. Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors is starting a new series of posts celebrating your success. It is a huge achievement to reach the end of a draft, let alone publish a book. To continue striving towards your goals is an incredible feat of determination and we are very proud of all of our members at every level.
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.
The beginning of the year is a perfect time to set goals and plan actions, especially if you're an author. While most businesses write a business plan, it's not always a consideration writers make. Tetania Bak, from ALLi partner member MiblArt is here to explain how to create one and as well as the goals in it.
It's fair to say that at some point in your writing career you're going to experience doubt. There's something insidious in our brains that pops up just at the wrong time. Steven Pressfield calls it Resistance, others call it doubt, imposter syndrome, block. Whatever you refer to it as, I think we can all agree it exists. ALLi author member Alice Briggs is here to show you how to defeat the beast and set yourself up for success in 2020.
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.
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.
During November we asked our members to tell us about their successes during 2019. Today, ALLi member Kayleigh Brindley rounds up some of our partner member successes from 2019.
