Welcome New Author Member
Thank you for joining the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). It’s my pleasure to welcome you to our alliance and bring you your membership badge:
<a href=”http://allianceindependentauthors.org”><img src=”http://allianceindependentauthors.org/badges/badge-185×185-author.png” alt=”The Alliance of Independent Authors – Author Member” /></a>
This piece of HTML code when dropped into your website, turns into an Author Membership badge for you to display, telling the world that you have self-published at least one book and are part of an organisation that values ethics and excellence and is committed to high standards. (Full instructions for uploading your badge are here)
I’d also like to personally welcome you to our social networking forums, where you can make contact with Alliance advisors, members and staff.
There are four closed member-only forums for ALLi connection, depending on which you prefer:
- the FACEBOOK GROUP (our liveliest discussion forum)
- the GOODREADS GROUP (where we cross-promote to each other’s readers)
- the LINKEDIN GROUP (for those who don’t love Facebook)
- the YOUTUBE CHANNEL (for members’ monthly Q&As and Advisors sessions)
Enjoy Our Blogs
Our advisors and members give great self-publishing advice at the Author Advice Centre, where you can also download your free member copy of our author guides.
Sell More Books
On Wednesdays we accept news, announcements, notices of awards etc from members for our Members Showcase, (which is regularly trawled by press and service providers). Send your news to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get all the self-publishing latest at: The Indie Authors Daily.
Each month, you will also receive a link to online events with ALLi Director, Orna Ross; Advisor Joanna Penn and other advisors and self-publishing experts, who answer our members’ questions live.
Lots more connection and resources in the website member zone and do let me know if you have any queries.
And thank you again for being part of our alliance. I look forward to working with you to write and publish more great books and reach more readers.
