ALLi advocates for the equitable treatment of the independent author. Through our advisor and ambassador network, our campaigns operate globally, advising authors, self-publishing services, literary, cultural and creative organizations, government bodies, decision-makers and influencers across eight publishing territories.

ALLi: your source for the best and most complete global data on self-publishing

The Alliance of Independent Authors both commissions original research and collates it across the self-publishing sector, to provide the latest and most complete facts and figures on self-publishing available. You can read our reports on our Self-Publishing Facts and Figures page.

Did you know? Self-published authors earn up to twice as much as those authors who are traditionally published. 

ALLi's Ambassadors

With a membership made up of authors from across the world, ALLi's Ambassadors enable our organisation to think globally and act locally. Our Ambassadors are knowledgeable, motivated, experienced and professional ALLi members who help us to champion independent authors and forge new links across our core territories: Africa, Asia & the Middle East, Australia & New Zealand, Canada, European Union, South and Central America, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Follow the link to meet them and read about what they're up to.

Our current campaigns:

Opening up to indie authors campaign

A campaign to encourage and aid the publishing and literary industries to include self-publishing authors in their programs, events, festivals, prizes, lisings and reviews.

The campaign includes guides for different types of organisations, as well as an author guide so they can present their books and themselves professionally within the publishing industry.

SelfPub3 campaign

A campaign to raise the average income for authors and poets through creative business practice.

The campaign also lobbies the literary and creative industries to provide more publishing and business skills education and advocates for a truly independent self-publishing sector.

Self-Publishing For All campaign

A campaign to encourage diversity, accessibility and freedom of expression by bringing self-publishing skills to as many authors as possible around the world and removing physical, mental and financial barriers to the process. 

Ethical Self-Publishing campaign

This campaign covers ethical issues that arise in the self-publishing industry, as well as an ongoing code of standards for indie authors and self-publishing services, showing their support for the principle of putting readers first and acting with transparency and courtesy. Authors display their adherence to this guiding principle through their publishing choices and by displaying ALLi’s “I am an ethical author” badge on their websites. Approved services agree to being vetted by the ALLi watchdog desk.

Current areas of focus include author safety, the emergence of AI (artificial intelligence) in the arts and Audiblegate.

AskALLi is an umbrella campaign where we promise to answer any questions anyone might have about self-publishing.
