    see misspelling of publishing in your recent e-mail– double L:

    ” the publlishing platform Ingram Spark (IS) is to enter up to 200 suitable self-published titles in Nielsen’s

    Oh, and this may sound stupid, but where do I find my ALLI number?

    • Debbie Young July 9, 2016 at 9:23 pm #

      It is your affiliate number, Jonathan. Log in to the ALLi membership website and navigate to the section about becoming an affiliate and you will find the number there (it’s the one after the affid? in the code for setting up your affiliate badge).

    Taken from this, , I can put a book right now on IS even if it is already with CS? I’ve never used IS, so can I assign an unused ISBN to IS when I sign up?

      Jonathan, you can publish your book on any platform you like, provided the copyright is yours. ALLi’s standard recommendation is to publish a paperback on both CS and IS using THE SAME ISBN because it is exactly the same product. If you use different ISBNs for the same product, it will confuse the various stock systems. So no need to use up an unassigned ISBN – just use the one you have for your book on CS.

    Hi Andy/ Orna — What about authors who are with LS rather than IS? In fact I upgraded this year to the enhanced service now that I have five books out — to see if it would make any difference so am ok for now. But if we can do a deal for next year I would very much want to be included as it’s not cheap! (Not yet sure it makes a difference but too early to tell!) Oh and it’s children’s books, which are always different!

    If this has good results, it will give authors a reason to choose Ingram Spark over other publishing resources (CreateSpace, etc.). Sounds intriguing!

    This is a great offer. Is the ‘IS’ number to which you refer infact the ISBN? Or does it refer to an Ingram Spark number?

      Glad you like it Steph. You’ll need your ALLi membership number, your IS account number and your ISBNs for any title you want to put forward.
