AskALLi Broadcasts

Self-publishing is a fast-changing industry and we cover every aspect, from beginners to advanced. Successful self-publishers trust the Alliance of Independent Authors to bring only the most up-to-date best practice and actionable ideas, tools and techniques.

Beginning in August 2019, you can look forward to a weekly advice broadcast in Facebook Live video on Mondays. Or if you prefer audio, the same salon becomes available as an audio podcast on Wednesdays. We’ll also have a weekly audio interview in our Inspiring Indie Authors slot on Sundays.

Bestselling author Adam Croft, PublishDrive’s Dalma Szentpály and ALLi Communications Manager Boni Wagner Stafford will be joining host Orna Ross each month, to talk specifically about the self-publishing topic of the month, as it applies to fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Our ever popular Member Q&A with Michael La Ronn and Advanced Salon with Joanna Penn remain.

The key to successful self-publishing is to keep experimenting and learning and that’s the focus of the #AskALLi podcasts, whether it’s our team and advisors offering advice or other inspirational indie authors telling their story.

Here’s the Schedule
