SFWA Launches Indie Pub 101 Resource Hub

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) has launched the first wave of resources for Indie Pub 101, a new section of the SFWA.org website. Developed by the SFWA Independent Authors committee, Indie Pub 101 provides up-to-date resources for independent authors, so they can improve their craft, produce professional books, and promote their work competitively in the digital marketplace.

Whether veterans of traditional publishing or brand-new authors with debut books in hand, independent authors, also known as self-publishing authors, must take on the multiple roles of designer, publisher, and publicist, which can be daunting. Indie Pub 101 will help. Its first three sections are now available at SFWA.org

  • Making the Book delves into the nuance of turning written text into an actual product.
  • Sales Channels walks authors through how and where to sell their product.
  • Marketing the Book primes authors for the daunting task of driving interested readers to their work. 

These resources draw from the varied and expansive knowledge of the members of the SFWA Independent Authors Committee. Future installments will include resources that help indie authors design and draw attention toward their author websites and share the benefits and challenges of becoming a small business themselves. 

For questions, email indie-authors@sfwa.org.
