If you've spent any time with the Alliance of Independent Authors you'll see particular faces either in the forum or on in posts more than others. Behind the scenes, the team does a huge amount of work that we don't always talk about. So today, we wanted to share some highlights and ALLi team updates from our recent meeting.
The Alliance of Independent Authors is a global non-profit organisation for authors with a mission of ethics and excellence in self-publishing. We do so many things for authors that it's hard to capture it in a sentence or paragraph. Which is why today, we're doing a run down of our most frequently asked questions from non-members.
Every single day, our members are achieving their dreams and reaching new heights in their author businesses. Today, the Alliance of Independent Authors is starting a new series of posts celebrating your success. It is a huge achievement to reach the end of a draft, let alone publish a book. To continue striving towards your goals is an incredible feat of determination and we are very proud of all of our members at every level.

The indie author community is renowned for being welcoming. If you've been in the industry for any amount of time, you'll have heard someone say 'a rising tide lifts all boats'.

This is how to give back to the indie author community in 2023.
For ten years, the Alliance of Independent Authors has worked to improve representation for indie authors. One aspect of that work has been getting organizations, awards and services to open their doors to self-publishers. We're delighted to have recently appointed a dedicated manager, Melissa Addey, for this important work and to have updated our Open Up To Indie Authors campaign and "Open Up" guidebook series. This is our Open Up To Indie Authors Campaign update.
