The Self-Publishing Services Directory is our bi-annual showcase of ALLi Partner Members’ vetted author services that comply with ALLi standards of ethics and excellence.

The Directory also features selected posts from the ALLi Author Advice Centre, so associate and author members can assemble the perfect team of tools and services.

It’s important for independent authors to have access to an impartial guide to professional services. Our Author Members need professional, trustworthy publishing services; our Partner Members want to showcase their services to authors. The Self-Publishing Service Directory is one of the ways we bring those two together.

All the services listed are checked against ALLi’s Code of Standards, and approved via the ALLi Watchdog team, headed by Philip Lynch, Andrew Lowe and Giacomo Giammatteo. (For more on how we assess services, see our author guidebook, How To Choose A Self-Publishing Service.

The listings are arranged in a number of categories that mirror the journey of a book from conception to, ideally, critically acclaimed bestseller. (Writing, Editorial, Design, Production & Distribution, Marketing & Promotion, Rights Licensing.)

The Directory is published bi-annually, digitally and in print, to ALLi members and the wider author community via this website, our Author Advice Centre, our Indie Author Fringe conferences and our attendance at literary bookfairs and events.

Please send all enquiries about the Directory to Partner Member Manager Philip Lynch at


Authors also connect to our Partners in our closed forums and through a searchable (by subject and location) database of services. Our Partner Members also offer our Author Members special discounts and deals.
