Self-Publishing 3.0

I Support Indie Authors

Self-Publishing 1.0 began in the 1990s with desktop publishing and print-on-demand technology.

Self-Publishing 2.0 kicked off with the Kindle in 2008, and quickly saw the rise of ebooks, ereaders and online bookstores.

Self-publishing 3.0 is authors going direct to readers, without any intermediary except a cashpoint.

The aim is to build direct sales, subscriptions, courses, patronage and other earning models on our own websites, side-by-side with also using retailer routes to the reader.

Mostly, it’s about the mindset shift needed to take control of your author business rather then taking what may seem like the perhaps easier option of putting all your eggs in a publishing basket that belongs to somebody else.

Self-Publishing 3.0 Campaign

As part of ALLi’s Self-publishing 3.0 campaign, we have produced two badges that you are welcome to use on your website and elsewhere to encourage readers to buy directly from you.

One is designed for you to use on your own website. The second is for use by readers, booksellers, and other parties who would like to demonstrate their support for indie authors.

Making these badges available is just one of many actions ALLi is taking as part of our Self-publishing 3.0 campaign, which we hope will play a significant part in raising awareness of the expanding opportunities for authors to earn a living from their writing and associated activities.

And opening a wider, and more informed, conversation about the indie movement among readers and key influencers.

You can learn more about Self-Publishing 3.0 by listening to the following podcasts or  reading this post by Director Orna Ross on our self-publishing advice blog.

Below you can grab the code to embed these logos onto your sites.
