A good assortment of articles filled with some great tips and information again this week. Have a look. I’m sure there will be something there to interest you no matter what stage you’re at with your self-publishing project(s).

Dan Wagstaff on The Casual Optimist
ABCD Award Winners 2016
“Congratulations to all the winners and shortlisted covers at the third annual Academy of British Cover Design Awards! Make sure you read Daniel Benneworth-Gray‘s report on last night’s “shindig” at the Creative Review, but in the meantime, all the winning designs are below”

Shari Stauch on Where Writers Win
Author Marketing Mastery #9: How to Conduct a Successful Book Crowdfunding Campaign
“Crowdfunding continues to be an excellent yet often overlooked potential source of author income. This especially holds true for indie authors who won’t be seeing that advance and who will be investing in their own editors, cover designers and marketers.”

David Wogahn on SellBox
How to Print Advance Reader Copy (ARC) Books Using CreateSpace
“One of the most effective marketing tools available to self-publishers is the ARC, or Advance Reader Copy. Sometimes referred to as an advance review copy, galleys, or reader’s edition (ARE), the ARC is nothing more than a free copy of your book that you share with potential reviewers in advance of the publication date.”

Lynne Cantwell on Indies Unlimited
How to Set Your Book Free on Amazon
“This may be old hat to some of you. But we get new indie authors every day, and also Amazon changes stuff every little while. So since IU is here to help everybody, no matter where they are on their indie-author journey, I thought I’d take a few minutes to explain what it takes to get Amazon to set the price of your eBook to free.”

Barb Drozdowich on How-to For Authors
Why Book Blog Tours Shouldn’t be About Selling Books
“The subject of book blog tours seems to be filled with strong feelings as well as a lot of misinformation or confusion. Because of this I decided to write a book on the subject to help authors understand and it also why I’m writing this post today. I’d like to share some thoughts.”
