Appointed Ambassador!

No, not representing a nation, but representing the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) here in France. I’ve published my own work independently since 2012 and been an ALLi member since 2013 and would not have had the success I have nor made such good friends in the writing community without ALLi.

What is ALLi?

It’s the premier membership association for self-publishing authors. A non-profit, our mission is promoting ethics and excellence in self-publishing.

That sounds fairly straightforward, doesn’t it, but there’s a comprehensive amount of information, advice, energy and practical help behind it, not to mention the cameraderie.

We work with authors, publishing services and author organisations, globally, and advocate for indie authors within the literary, publishing and creative industries.

We help authors to publish great books, reach more readers and selectively license publishing rights.

Our members have access to private forums, contract advice, discounts, guidebooks, literary agent, personal advice, and more.

Moreover, we work with publishing services and author organisations all over the world. ALLi author and partner members are everywhere!

And my new role?

Being a local source of information about ALLi’s work – campaigns, membership, what ALLi does, great resources both free and paid.

Encouraging new members, individual and writing associations.

Finding local opportunities currently closed to indies and exploring ways to open them up.

Being the ‘face’ and contact point for ALLi – sending local feedback about what my area needs from ALLi, what goes down well, suggestions for ALLi, topics on which ALLi needs to act. Also to highlight amazing examples and high benchmarks we can all aspire to!

The vast majority of staff and ALLi representatives are unpaid volunteers (including me!). We can’t take on everything, but we really appreciate receiving information, updates, ideas and suggestions and seeing what we can do.

Contact me at with any questions.
