Self-Publishing Advice & Inspirations

Sep 22, 2019

My guest this week is Scottish author Barry Hutchison, who has found great success as an indie author writing comedy science fiction and crime thrillers.

These two genres might seem to be unrelated, but to Barry it was about combining topics that interested him with a market that needed to be filled.

The result has been a successful transition from traditionally published author to indie, and he has not looked back. 

Every week I interview a member of ALLi to talk about their writing and what inspires them, and why they are inspiring to other authors.

Find more author advice, tips and tools at our Self-publishing Author Advice Center, with a huge archive of nearly 2,000 blog posts, and a handy search box to find key info on the topic you need.

And, if you haven’t already, we invite you to join our organization and become a self-publishing ally. You can do that at
