Have You Acquainted Yourself With Our Blog and Signed Up For Our Advice Newsletter?
We run an action packed Self-Publishing Advice Centre, with a large following, full of indie author news and views, tips and tools, as well as showcasing our members’ books to the world.

Have You Told Us About Your Book Launch Or Other News So We Can Tell The World on Member Showcase?

Have You Organised Yourself So You Get Paid to Belong?
ALLi’s Affiliate Program makes it possible to cover the costs of your membership fee by a simple “spread the word” mechanism, effectively making it free – or even profitable – to belong and bring your friends on board. This benefit is open to all ALLi members, including Partners and Associates.
How it works is simple: for every new member that joins ALLi via your unique identifier, you receive 30% of the new member’s first year membership fee. You can include the link as a simple URL in an email, or use any of the badges we’ve designed for you. See Affiliate Program page for full details.
You can include your affiliate code anywhere you like: on your website or blog, on your email footer, as a link within your author bio on your ebooks… Attracting a few new members more than covers the cost of your annual subscription and some of our members enjoy a good monthly income from their affiliate code.
Have You Downloaded Your Free Books?
All our publications are free to members.
Have You Been In Touch With Us About Selling More Rights To Your Books?
