Black Friday and Cyber Monday ALLi Partner Discounts for 2021

Alliance of Independent Authors partner members have offered a stack of generous deals for writers on all sorts of awesome tools, products, services and more. There's something for every writer in this Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale for writers.

Our thanks to all the ALLi partners who have provided a discount. Please note, ALLi does not gain affiliate fees from any of these recommendations. We include them because we think they're a good deal and no other reason.

Discount: 12.5% discount for nonfiction editing, CUSTOM STYLE SHEET discount price **£55** in December and January


Nonfiction editing:

Writing a business book, a how-to manual or a memoir? Once you've written your final draft, it's time to focus on the details and fix the things that only a fresh eye can see. I'll make sure your text is consistent and your message is clear. Plus I'll fix any issues with grammar, punctuation, spelling and style. I'll also do the basic clean-up of your text file that's needed for the next stage of the publication process.

Custom Style Sheet:

Save money and time on editing by working to a style sheet for your project. This records your preferences on, for example, spellings, capitalisation, punctuation, hyphenation, treatment of numbers and dates, headings and list styles. I’ll analyse your text, ask you some questions and then prepare a custom style sheet to get you started on the journey to writing consistency. You’ll then be able to add to it as you encounter further language choices in your work.
