The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) is delighted to announce the inclusion of founder and director, Orna Ross, in The Bookseller's Annual Hot 100 report.

“Of course I'm delighted with this recognition of the dedication and determination of everyone at ALLi,” Orna Ross said. “Our team, our volunteers and our amazing advisors. And, of course, our members: that exceptionally fine band of writers and their exceptionally fine books.

“All our hard work and our support of each other has won this recognition by the premier books trade magazine that author-publishing is now an important part of the publishing industry. And that the Alliance of Independent Authors is the association that best represents the interests of self-publishing writers who want to produce great books.”
