Episode Info: Each month Orna Ross and a special guest answer Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) Members' questions. This month we're welcoming Paul Teague into the hot seat to talk about a series of videos he's created especially for ALLi. And to answer our members' latest, most pressing questions with Orna. Our monthly Ask ALLi broadcasts are an ideal way to keep learning about being an indie author and the skills you needed to become a successful self-publisher. Here's the self-publishing questions asked and answered this month: Q: I’m printing and distributing through Ingram Spark. What's the best way to set up returns? Q: Amazon has it’s own imprint. Will they end up only selling books from Amazon Publishing and and ignore Indie Author's books? Q: What are you three top tips for using LinkedIn to develop your author brand? Q: I have a wordpress website hosted on Bluehost, where can I host a test site so that I can design it before I publish? Q: I'm setting up my own imprint to publish my own books, and considering using it to publish books by other authors. What can I do to create a solid business plan? Q: Can an ISBN owned by my imprint be placed on a book written by somebody else, with me as a publisher? Q: What are the minimal submission guidelines I need to write in order for them to be legally binding on both sides? Q: How do I set industry standards for setting up my financial business models for my imprint? Q: When I publish other authors under my imprint, who takes care of the marketing? The author or the publisher? Q: My book is with Bookbaby for distribution. I’ve written a self-help book, and want to know how to find marketing plan help. Q: ISBN - do I need the name of a publisher in order to fill out the ISBN application. Paul hosts the Self-Publishing Journeys Podcast which features discussions with other indie authors who talk about their approaches for self-publishing and reaching readers using inventive strategies that work. He also runs the Self-Publishing Academy, which is a simple, step-by-step, jargon free guide to self-publishing your book. Paul also represented ALLi at the Manchester Amazon Academy event for authors, and will be on the panel at the Edinburgh Amazon Academy on May 23rd.
