Member benefits

When you join the Alliance of Independent Authors, you’re not just joining an association – you’re becoming part of a movement. Whether you’re publishing your first book or your fiftieth, whether you write fiction, non-fiction or poetry, we’re  with you every step of the way.

We reinvest our profits back into our organisation for the benefit of our members and the wider indie author community. Your membership thereby supports you through our advocacy campaigns, advisor network, and watchdog desk, and gives you access to the many benefits listed below.

Your Questions Answered

Our “AskALLi” campaign prides itself on being able to answer any self-publishing question any of our members might have. Just ask, by email or via our dynamic member forum, and our team, advisors and members are there to answer you. We also run a self-publishing advice center, with a monthly members’ Q&A, podcast, blog and weekly newsletter.

Member forum

Our private forum provides a safe space to ask questions, learn and give back, and receive motivation and support.


Your membership pays for itself as our Partner Members offer ALLi authors a host of discounts on the services they need, as needed.
