The Alliance of Independent Authors

The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) is a global membership association for self-publishing authors. A non-profit, our mission is ethics and excellence in self-publishing.

Everyone on our team is a working indie author and we offer advice and advocacy for self-publishing authors within the literary, publishing and creative industries around the world.

We help authors to publish great books, reach more readers, and selectively license their publishing rights, instead of exclusively contracting to a single publisher.

Join us to gain access to our private forums, contract advice, discounts, guidebooks, literary agent, advice, advocacy and more.

ALLi author and partner members are everywhere!

Take a look at our growing global community.

ALLi has helped me in myriad ways: discounts on services, vetting publishing industry providers, charting a path to my most recent book’s sales success—but more than anything, it’s a community of friendly, knowledgeable, helpful people who are always willing to answer a question or offer guidance. If you’ve chosen to be an independent author, you need to join ALLi.

When I started as an indie author, ALLI’s self-publishing advice was invaluable in helping me make smart decisions. It is now an honor to serve on the ALLi team so that I can pay it forward.

I’m new to ALLI but not to indie publishing. I joined looking to find an indie-business focused organization and more professional environment than what I’d found elsewhere. I appreciate that this organization is business focused and has in-depth posts and podcasts addressing important indie-publishing issues and processes.

I am now an indie published author, and seriously, I couldn’t have done it without this membership. I’d be lost and have wasted time and an awful lot of money, not to mention the lost opportunities being a member brought to my attention. So much info I’d never have found floundering around on my own. I am eternally grateful to ALLi and all the helpful members.

Joining ALLi was probably the best decision I’ve made as a beginner indie author. The Facebook group is amazing – friendly, patient, helpful (and Gods know I’ve been asking *many* questions recently). There are great discounts and offers available as well, my membership cost paid for itself at least five times over by now. But you can’t put a price on all the help I’ve received. I’m not the kind of person that writes testimonials, really – this is an exceptional case. If you’re still trying to decide – just do it! See you soon.

I’ve been an Alliance member for several years now and find it’s the most reliable source when I have questions about anything related to my Indie publishing business. The website is loaded with information, they host an online conference, and the FB group is super valuable. I highly recommend joining if you’re diving into this world.

I’ve been a member since 2012. I really value my membership of the Alliance of Independent Authors. I’ve found it a great support in all my writing and publishing activities – especially the Facebook group which continues to be a place of inspiration and support by the very caring people representing the organisation. I will always keep up my membership.

In the past month, I have had 3 book cover design enquiries from being a partner member of Alli with two as current paid projects. So I'm a super happy member!
