ALLi runs an ongoing campaign to encourage and aid literary events, festivals, prizes, reviewers, booksellers and other interested parties to find ways to include self-publishing authors in their programs, events, listings and reviews. There are four components to the campaign:
Dan Holloway and Debbie Young, our blog editor, have written a guidebook — Opening Up To Indie Authors — (available free to members and at all good online retailers) which assesses the opportunities and challenges and offers best practices and etiquette for both indie authors and their potential partners.
- Email Campaign
A team of volunteers helps inan email campaign to selected partners worldwide. (Please let us know if you’d like to volunteer).
- Information Gathering
We’d also like you to take a moment to tell us anything relevant to the campaign by contacting us (using the form at the bottom of the page) too — commendations for those who are doing well, recommendations to those who could do better.
We are seeking signatures for a petition, launched in tandem with the book, to which you can add your name right now (and pass on to your indie author friends, supporters and fans.) We’re aiming to get 10,000 signatures.
Please sign our petition here.
Thank you for whatever support you are able to offer.
