For anyone who attended the talk our huge apologies that the system crashed half way through – Shelli and I carried on going through the questions until the full hour was up and it was only afterwards that we realised that the system may have broken. We think there is a possibility that the talk was recorded – if it was, we will make a link available in the next couple of days. Otherwise I will post here again with a revised date for the talk – our apologies once again. Karen
YA and Children’s Authors – Live Self-publishing Q&A Session
Tues 18 March 12 noon PDT/3pm EST / 7pm GMT Free Event! All Welcome!
Just a quick post to to let you know that I shall be answering questions along with YA Indie Author, Shelli Johannes at a live Q&A session to be hosted by The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) on YouTube next Tuesday 18 March from 7-8pm UK time/3-4pm EST.
The event is free and you don’t need to be a member of ALLi to attend.
ALLi Director, Orna Ross, will be fielding your questions which you can send in advance using the form link below. You’ll also find a link to the YouTube page for the event below.
Shelli (AKA S.R. Johannes) is based in Atlanta, and is the award-winning author of the Amazon bestselling YA thrillers, ‘Untraceable’ and ‘Uncontrollable’. Her third book in the series, ‘Unstoppable’ is scheduled for release in May. As well as being the YA Adviser for ALLi, Shelli organises the highly successful indie author online conference, IndieRecon, and is a founder member of author co-operative, The Indelibles.
As most of you will know, I am based in London, and was an early adopter of children’s self-publishing in the UK . I’ve successfully placed my three children’s books The Secret Lake, Eeek! The Runaway Alien and Ferdinand Fox’s Big Sleep in bricks and mortar stores in London and have to date sold over 7,000 books across Kindle and print. I regularly take my books into schools, and I’ve also recently self-published an interactive iPad book app version of Ferdinand Fox’s Big Sleep.
Send us your questions
If you’d like to ask me or Shelli about any aspect of self-publishing for our markets, please add your question on this form in advance and we’ll try to include it in the schedule.
You’ll also be able to comment during the session using the YouTube chat functionality.

*Please double check this time if you’re on the west coast of the USA – I think I have this right taking into account daylight savings changes over there. If in doubt, the EST and GMT times are definitely correct!
