Welcome to AskALLi, the self-publishing advice podcast from the Alliance of Independent Authors. This week it's our monthly beginners' self-publishing salon with advice, tips, and tools for indie authors just starting out.

Topics discussed this week include:

  • What are the differences between a hobbyist and business mindset?
  • Being a "content provider" for somebody else vs. actually being in business.
  • Writing for yourself vs. writing to make a living.
  • What is the focus of ALLi members?
  • Writing for a market vs. writing for your passion.

And more!
