I joined the Alliance of Independent Authors when it launched at the London Book Fair in April 2012 and now act as its Children’s Advisor.
If you are an existing or aspiring self-published author I would highly recommend that you join too. The sense of community is wonderful and there’s a fantastic closed Facebook page where we all help each other out with informal queries on everything from marketing experiences, to ISBN choice to technical know-how and professional recommendations. But that’s just the start… there are regular newsletters and blogs, free manuals and advice guides – plus links with Goodreads groups – as well as with agencies and respected professionals from the publishing industry who are now looking at our work. This is a serious, highly professional organisation that has quickly gained international recognition and will help you take your writing and self-publishing aspirations to the next level.

Disclosure: I will receive a small referral fee if you sign up via this link — however this will not affect the cost of your membership. (And it certainly doesn’t influence my recommendation! )
