What's the best way to gather reviews for my book? Our #AskALLi Member Q&A is hosted by Michael La Ronn and ALLi Director, Orna Ross, and this month they'll be answering this question and more.
With the dawn of a new year, it's a great time to pick up a new habit, hobby or skill. Then there's the bargains to be had with sales and discounts. Or perhaps you're more of a gadget and software fan. When it comes to the latter, there's a lot of tech and software at the indie author's disposal, so much so it can be overwhelming. Fear not, Tim Lewis, science fiction and fantasy author, social media specialist and host of ALLi’s weekly #indieAuthorChat on Twitter, threw this question to the ALLi Facebook members forum in preparation for the recent SelfPub conference. Nominations poured in, and the result is a definitive list of 100 must-have tools for writing, editing, design, production and distribution—this is the ultimate guide to tools and tech for indie authors.

My guest this week is Kristina Stanley, who is a rare writer who also loves math. You don't find too many who can use both the logical and artistic sides of their brains. The way Kristina has combined the two talents is in the fiction-writing software she developed that guides writers along the way to achieving their artistic vision. But, first, let's learn more about Kristina's mathematical mind.
Writing books is easy, writing good books is hard. Do you want to know how good prose sells more books? Getting every element of your story right is important. But it's the words that make readers come back. Good stories need good words.
