Member benefits

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

Our profits are reinvested back into our organisation for the benefit of our members and the wider indie community. This means that your membership will not only gain you support via our campaigns, our network of advisors, and our Watchdog Desk, but also give you access to:

Discounts and Deals

Your membership pays for itself with free set-up and revision on Ingram Spark and a host of other member-only discounts on all the services you need.

  • Printers

  • Editors
  • Proofreaders

Your Questions Answered

No matter what questions you have, our global network of advisors will come to your aid via Facebook or email. We also host a monthly members’ Q&A, podcast, and newsletter.

Member forum

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


ALLi connects with book fairs, booksellers, distributors, literary festivals, self-publishing services, and rights buyers  on your behalf. In addition, we have close partnerships with Amazon KDP, Apple Books, Google Books, IngramSpark, Kobo, and a wide range of other approved self-publishing services.

Free Books & Resources

Gain access to our growing library of downloadable guides on every aspect of author-publishing. Updated regularly, packed with solid information, and based on real-life member case histories.

Legal and Business Advice

We’re not lawyers, but we do offer our members general legal, contractual, and business advice and a series of downloadable agreement templates and annotated contracts. We also have an active watchdog desk that produces ratings and reports about the best and worst publishing and self-publishing services.

Rights Licensing Services

A rights desk, rights reachout service, and dedicated literary agent focus on helping our qualifying members to selectively license and sell their translation, TV, film and other rights.

Member magazine

The Indie Author is our quarterly member magazine, packed with information, advice, news and views, and interviews with our members.

Member database

Be listed in our searchable ‘Find an indie author’ member database, trawled by literary festivals, event organizers, journalists, publishers, literary agents and online retailers in search of successful indie authors.
