Details

The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) is a non-profit professional association for authors who self-publish. It was launched at the London Book Fair 2012 by the wife and husband team of Orna Ross and Philip Lynch.

ALLi is pronounced “ally” (al-eye) because this is what the alliance aims to be: the self-publisher’s ally. The organization’s mission is to foster excellence and ethics in self-publishing.

ALLi is headquartered in London, UK, and has members all over the world, organized across seven key English-language territories.

 

 

What ALLi Does

  • It gives advice and provides best-practice information and education through its Self-Publishing Advice Center, which offers a daily blog, weekly live streams and podcasts, and a bookstore of self-publishing guidebooks.
  • It monitors the self-publishing sector through its watchdog desk, alerting authors to bad actors and predatory players, and runs a self-publishing service ratings list, and approved partner program, to help writers find vetted publishing professionals.
  • It campaigns for the advancement of indie authors in the publishing and literary sectors (bookstores, libraries, literary events, prizes, grants, awards, and other author organizations) globally, encouraging the provision of publishing and business skills for authors, and furthering the indie author cause.
  • It serves its members through various member tools and resources which include self-publishing guidebooks, author forums (a group that shares general publishing advice, and a business and rights focus group for authorpreneur members), sample agreements that authors can use in dealings with editors, designers, publishers, and other rights buyers,
    literary agency representation and a member care desk.
  • It provides community. ALLi gives members access to writers and publishing professionals around the world.
