Learn from the most common mistakes that indie authors make and save yourself time, money and heartache in today's show with Ricardo Fayet from Reedsy.
In the introduction, I mention my thoughts on the Independent Publishers Guild autumn conference and what we can learn from print-focused retailers.
Plus, Audible expands into a Canada-specific site, Siri gets a new translation function in iOS 11, Google's article on how publishers can use machine learning for translation of articles, and Google also launches a micro-payment app specifically for India, which I'm excited about as it bodes well for the expansion of direct-to-consumer sales via mobile.
Today's show is sponsored by IngramSpark, who I use to print and distribute my print-on-demand books to 39,000 retailers including independent bookstores, schools and universities, libraries and more. It's your content – do more with it through IngramSpark.com.
