YouTube Channels and Youtubers for writers and everyone else!
I’m joining the AtoZ challenge sharing YouTube channels and Youtubers I follow as an independent author, researcher, learner, reader, and someone who is interested in emotional growth and physical wellbeing, as well as entertainment and current affairs.
I’ve enjoyed watching YouTube videos for years, but in 2020, when the pandemic broke out in Europe and the first lockdown was imposed as a security measure in most countries, I decided to go Premium on YouTube and I started watching even more videos on a wide variety of entertaining and informative topics, which I’d like to share with you over the coming month. I hope you enjoy!
Today it’s all about advice for Independent Authors from ALLI, the Alliance of Independent Authors.
The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) is a membership association for self-publishing authors. They work with authors, publishing services and author organizations, globally, and advocate for indie authors within the literary, publishing and creative industries.
The Alliance of Independent Authors has a YouTube channel with plenty of helpful advice for authors with playlists including interviews with successful independent authors such as Joanna Penn, and varied advice on marketing, publishing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. It is run by Irish indie author and creativist, Orna Ross, Director of The Alliance of Independent Authors, the Indie Author Fringe online author conferences and the Go Creative! Show.
In their latest video, Orna Ross and Production Manager Dan Parsons discuss all the things they wish they knew when they first started out as authors.
I hope you found these channels interesting or useful, and if you want to check out what other bloggers are writing about this month in the AtoZ Blogging Challenge check them out on Twitter , Facebook, or Instagram.
Meanwhile, I hope you’re enjoying this chilly and rainy April!
