Episode Info

Episode Info: Each month, Joanna and Orna answer Members’ self-publishing questions during our regular Ask ALLi event. If you missed our live Q&A session you can watch the video and listen to the podcast here. We’ve also included a summary of the questions that were asked and answered this month. Is there an advantage to using both Create Space and IngramSpark, and why, does one offer something the other one doesn’t? Should you purchase your own ISBN numbers, even if the first book is an e-book? And if someone submits a PDF to Ingram, do they generate an ePub, should you use IngramSpark for e-books? I’m finding it hard to get any writing done with so many tasks. Any tips for that? I write music based fiction or many books in my series follows series or songwriters and includes lyrics I’ve written. I want to bring other named titles and songwriters/singers into this story line. Is it legal to do this? I’ve bitten a bullet, commissioned an audio version of my first book. What advice do you have about going wide or exclusive with Audible bearing in mind different royalty rates and contract terms? How long before you publish should you start your marketing plan? I don’t have time to write and schedule my own Facebook ads, can you recommend someone to do this for me? What is your advice to a first time author with one book hitting the market in the next few months, does KDP Select make sense as a strategy or does that set up KU reader expectation that your remaining books will be free? What is the best way to make a review e-book copy of your book from a word document? What are some of the innovative ways Indie authors of YA are attracting young readers? Are those authors also targeting adults and if so what is the strategy? I have an edited manuscript, I plan to self-publish, what is the next step to get me from computer to bookstore? Our monthly Member Q&A is part of our “Ask ALLi” Campaign: in which ALLi (Alliance of Independent Authors) commits to answering any question about self-publishing. Interested in Joining ALLi?
