Last week on the ALLi Twitter chat (#indieAuthorChat) we asked questions to Rebecca Wood about getting your author business back on track. The ALLi Twitter chat starts 8pm UK Time on Wednesdays (that’s 3pm EST and noon Pacific Time) under the hashtag #indieAuthorChat and lasts for an hour. We ask a guest questions and they answer on Twitter. The tweets below are only the questions and answer tweets not every tweet on the chat. The topic of this chat was getting your author business back on track.

A4: See my replies to Q3! Seriously though, if you have delayed the launch of your book because it is a paperback, consider releasing an ebook instead. If revenue for that would not be comparable, consider releasing a chapter to whet your readers’ appetites. #IndieAuthorChat

A4: [2/3] Take pre-orders. If you want to support independent bookshops in your area who had agreed to take your book, see if they are able to take pre-orders for your book on their website. They will appreciate the revenue. #IndieAuthorChat

A4: [3/3] If you had arranged to do book signing events or readings, contact the venue and see if they are able to livestream an event, or record one yourself and share it with your mailing list or on social media. #IndieAuthorChat
