It was time for our 30 minute broadcast with Jay and Michael. This month they discussed writing tools, styles and challenges. Catch it again here.

American indie author Dorah Blume tells us exactly how she used Espresso Book Machine to bolster her confidence and advance her progress. And Ian Andrew provides a simple beginner’s guide to using Word to format ebooks. If you’re a PC user, this one’s for you.

And finally, as always, we come to Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up which reminded us of how huge the Chinese market is for indie authors, a how-to post on gifting books within your Amazon account, Wattpad’s latest partnership, aggregation sites new EU licensing laws, and an update on some handy indie tools.
