AskALLi Self-Publishing Advice: Video Livestream & Podcast

On Mondays, we run an advice live stream on Facebook & YouTube with ALLi director Orna Ross and leading self-publishing advisors, including Sacha Black, Michael La Ronn and Joanna Penn. These #AskALLi self-publishing salons offer guidance on making better books and reaching more readers across the three macro-genres of  fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

On Fridays, we issue the same advice session as a podcast.

Each Sunday Howard Lovy hosts an  Inspirational Indie Author audio interview with an ALLi member.

And on the third Thursday of every month, Dan Holloway and Howard Lovy round-up the latest self-publishing news.
