Alliance of Independent Authors Blog Roundup 2020 Week 7

This week’s highlights: Joanna and I discuss How to be Creative for the Long Term; Howard Lovy interviews Chris Calder an author in his 80’s who’s showing no signs of slowing down….and, as ever, Dan Holloway has all the latest self-publishing news from the Alliance of Independent Authors blog roundup 2020 Week 7.

Self-Publishing Advice Roundup:

  • In the latest #AskALLi Advanced Self-Publishing Salon, Joanna and I go back to the source to talk about creativity: what it is, how to sustain and nurture it and the challenges of overcoming resistance, beating block and sustaining a creative life over the long term.
  • This week’s Inspirational Indie Authors podcast sees Howard Lovy interviewing Chris Calder, a writer who discovered his voice later in life. In his 70s, in fact.
  • In, The AskALLi Ultimate Guide to ISBNs for Authors, the AskALLi team answer your questions about ISBNs for authors. We hear from Eleanor Pigg, registration services manager for Nielsen, the ISBN vendor in the UK. And US-based author Karen Myers makes a passionate case for authors owning our own.
  • And finally, in Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up this week, he’s looking at; what the Audible captions settlement means; AI and intellectual property; London Book Fair; what other creative industries mean for us.

Lots to learn and ponder, as ever.

Each Wednesday I bring you this round up from the self-publishing advice blog, run by the Alliance of Independent Authors, the non-profit association for self-publishing authors. We offer many benefits to indie authors.
