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.
As part of the recent mini #SelfPubCon the Alliance of Independent Authors ran a ten word story competition in partnership with Kobo Writing Life. Today, we hear from the competition winner, mystery author Callie Browning. Congratulations to all the entrants and to Callie.

Author resources have imploded over the years. There's fifty answers to every question, five different tech solutions and an array of experts to help. This is good news for Indies searching out answers and tools to help them in their creative businesses, but a little overwhelming. The Alliance of Independent Authors alone has a monumental list of resources at it's members disposal and many more open to the public. Below is ALLi's ultimate guide to indie author resources for 2021.
