Global Self-publishing

ALLi is the only global self-publishing membership organization. We've just celebrated our first decade and our authors are found all over the world. Through our members, partners, ambassadors and organization network, we support ethics and excellence in self-publishing for indie authors everywhere and at all levels of society.

Did you know?

Indie authors can self-publish in almost two hundred countries, in formats including hardback, paperback, eBooks and audiobooks.

Books by indie authors account for 30-34% of all e-book sales in the largest English-language markets, as reported in Publishers Weekly.

The world’s biggest book fair is in Egypt. 3.5 million people attended in 2020. The Algeria, Iran, Sharjah (UAE) and Kolkata (India) International Book Fairs each attracted over 2 million visitors in 2019. The Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Baghdad (Iraq), Buenos Aries (Argentina), Bangkok (Thailand), Havana (Cuba), Colombo (Sri Lanka), New Delhi (India), Muscat (Oman), Hyderabad (India) and numerous other international book fairs each attracted over 1 million visitors in 2019.

We currently liaise with creative industry representatives across eight key publishing territories.

  • Africa
  • Asia & Middle East
  • Australia & New Zealand
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • South & Central America
  • United Kingdom of GB & NI (UK)
  • United States of America (US)

Our Ambassadors


ALLi ambassadors are volunteer members who support our campaigns for ethics and excellence in their local area. They connect local indie authors and services,  encourage and answer new self-publishers' questions about local markets and conditions, and demonstrate how ALLi can help indie authors make better books and reach more readers.
