The SelfPub3 Campaign — Authors Making A Living from Writing and Publishing Books: ALLi Campaigns Podcast with Orna Ross and Melissa Addey #HeliumRadio
This week Orna Ross and Campaigns Manager Melissa Addey discuss the second campaign in their roundup of ALLi’s advocacy work: SelfPub3. This author business campaign aims to raise the average income for authors and poets through good publishing practices and lobbies and supports the literary and creative industries in providing more publishing skills support and education for authors. You can support this campaign by spreading the truth about self-publishing, and our research surveys and data roundups give you the facts you need to spread pride in being an indie author. Find more author advice, tips, and tools at our self-publishing advice center. And, if you haven’t already, we invite you to join our organization and become a self-publishing ally. Now, go write and publish! About the Hosts Orna Ross launched the Alliance of Independent Authors at the London Book Fair in 2012.
