On today's Creating Better Books podcast, Howard Lovy features Alice Briggs, creative director for Indie Author Magazine, whose job it is to inform, educate, and inspire the self-publishing community.
In our Alliance of Independent Authors guidebooks, podcast and advice columns, we're careful to distinguish between opinion and fact. In our new column, "We Need to Talk About...", it's going to be all about opinion. We're seeking compelling arguments that stimulate conversation, foster understanding, and expand perspectives.

In every indie author's life comes the time when you need to change what you've been doing, or how you do it. Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors AskALLi team is talking about starting over with covers, distribution outlets, brand names, and other indie author pivots.

For some, being an indie author is the dream, for others it's a traditional contract. And for others still finding the perfect balance between the two is the real dream. Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors is talking to several ALLi members today, all of whom are hybrid authors. This is the ultimate guide to being a hybrid author.
Creating an author website is one thing, but getting it to convert and actually sell your books is a whole other skill. Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors AskALLi team welcomes partner member Thrive Themes to talk all about how to create an author website that converts.
