Meet ALLi at the London Book Fair 2024: Team Stand, Indie Author Talks, and Drinks Party

One of our favourite things to do here at the Alliance of Independent Authors is to get out and about at global publishing events to meet indie authors from around the world. We're pleased to announce that ALLi will be back at the London Book Fair 2024 from Monday 11th March to Thursday 14th March 2024, where we'll be hosting a series of pivotal events and talks, and welcoming the introduction of the new, ground-breaking Self-Publishing Zone.

Do also stop by on Tuesday 12th March and Wednesday 13th March to meet literary agent Ethan Ellenberg, head of the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency (EELA), who will be available at the stand. Ethan supports ALLi's Contract Review Service offering contract advice to ALLi members.

All ALLi members and friends of ALLi are also invited to join us for a drinks party on Wednesday 13th March, from 5:30pm to 8pm at The Hand and Flower, Olympia. Kindly sponsored by Amazon KDP, this gathering is an excellent opportunity for authors to connect with Amazon and other ALLi members and friends. You can find the full invitation at the end of this post.

See our schedule of events below, filled with inspirational experts and successful indie authors. For members who can't attend in person, we'll be bringing video coverage of all of our London Book Fair talks to you after the event.
