Being published is not somebody else telling you your book is good enough for them to invest in. Publishing is seven processes that we must get right, to be a good self-publisher (or any kind of publisher): editorial, design, production, distribution, marketing, promotion and licensing publishing rights.
Best practice advice on how to do these well is offered here, on our self-publishing advice blog, together with writing advice, advice on making a living as an author and self-publishing analysis and opinion.
This blog is also known as “the ALLi blog”, as it is written by Author and Partner Members of the Alliance of Independent Authors.
To find out more about this and other benefits of membership — including discounts and deals, legal advice, author community, publishing contacts and more — go here. If you haven’t already, we’d love you to join us.
In the meantime, happy reading, writing and publishing!
