SelfPubCon: Don't Miss This Top Online Conference for Indie Authors


Hey Writers,

It's Lisa Lepki here from ProWritingAid. We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Self-Publishing Advice Conference (SelfPubCon) again this year. Hosted by the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), it is one of the best events in the calendar for indie writers.

The conference runs on 17th/18th/19th October 2020 starting on the Saturday at 10am GMT. Can't make that time? Don't worry. You'll be able to access all of the talks for 48 hours after the conference is over.

I'll be collaborating with Kristina Stanley from Fictionary on the following session:

Two Tools to Aid Self-Editing: ProWritingAid and Fictionary

In this session, we look at how technology can help you perform a thorough and effective self-edit to tighten and strengthen your manuscript. Kristina Stanley will demonstrate the key features and tools in Fictionary that help with story editing, and Lisa Lepki will demonstrate the key features and tools in ProWritingAid that help with copy editing. See the software in action in a live editing session and bring all your questions to our Q&A.

By the end of this session, you will understand how to use Fictionary and ProWritingAid together to complete a full story edit and line edit of your manuscript.

The Self-Publishing Advice Conference

At the conference, ALLi will host 24 video sessions over 24 hours, bringing you the best and most up-to-date self-publishing education through the magic of online webinars.

This year, their conference theme is Tools and Tech and they've compiled 100 of the best self-publishing tools for indie authors, designed to make writing, making, and selling books easier, faster, and more profitable.

As you'll see if you hop over to the conference home page, they've brought together an amazing line-up of speakers offering news, interviews, webinars, and presentations. All you need to participate is a pen, paper, and the drive to learn.

Here are some of the topics:

  • New International Tools at Ingram Spark, Plus an ALLi Member Q&A
  • Two Tools to Aid Your Editing: ProWritingAid and Fictionary
  • How Authors Use Giveaways to Grow Their Readership
  • Reaching Your Ideal Readers: Using Beta Readers to Validate Your Book Ideas
  • Write More Books Faster: How Plottr Can Turbo-Charge Your Writing Process
  • Mastering Online Author Events

See you there!

There are a lot of courses, resources, and virtual summits out there for writers, but #SelfPubCon is was one of the very first (premiering in 2013 as IndieReCon) and is still one of the best.

It's exceptional, not just because it's backed by ALLi, but because it's always one step ahead and cuts through everything you DON'T need to know or do. I'm really excited by the tools and tech that ALLi has compiled for this conference.

See you there!
