Alison Ingleby is a freelance writer who provides blogging and copywriting services to businesses all over the world who are connected to travel or the great outdoors.
Alison is planning to use this freelance business business to bootstrap her self-publishing efforts.
She has just written her first book, which will form part of a dystopian trilogy.
I asked Alison to join me on the podcast because I'm keen to capture the experiences and progress of a brand new indie author.
