It is the season of giving, so perhaps it’s no surprise we have not one but two pre-Christmas gifts for you in our latest news bulletin.
We are pleased to announce a special deal with IngramSpark service, offering all Alliance members some exclusive discounts. IngramSpark is the eBook publishing, print on demand and distribution service from Ingram, combining all these services into one simple platform. The discount offers quite a few benefits, so we thought we’d round up the range of discounts on offer.

- $37.50 for P + E (when done simultaneously)

As one of the few viable alternatives to KDP and Createspace, ALLi is working with Ingram to ensure our members have the greatest access to a range of resources for author-publishers. But there are quite a few discounts and a lot of information to process! So, to ensure we are giving you as much impartial advice on the Ingram service, stay tuned for a full round up and comparison from ALLi watchdog Ben Galley on the SPA blog this week.
Spark is also setting up a user group for feedback during the introductory phase of the platform, which ALLi members are most welcome to join and offer their thoughts. More to follow on that one.
