Calling On The Book Industry to Open Up To Self-Publishing Indie Authors
Independent self-publishing authors are producing work of proven quality and value to readers. Literary organizations, events managers, book stores, libraries and review outlets must now find ways to include them based on the quality of their work.

I, and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), urge you to find ways to include self-publishing writers in your programs as a matter of priority.
As you know, more and more writers are turning to self-publishing and many such authors are producing work of proven value to readers.
While recognizing that there are challenges in incorporating such writers, it has become a necessity, if book stores, libraries, literary events and reviewers are to be inclusive, and fully serve readers and writers.
ALLi can provide a guidebook "Opening Up To Indie Authors" which gives authors and the industry through the challenge and has lots of practical advice on how to work together to mutual benefit.
We have found that where there is the will, there is a way.
We urge you will give this matter the attention it deserves. Please feel free to contact the Alliance of Independent Authors for more information and support.
