Digital Book World 2018 Announces Partnership With the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi)
The Alliance of Independent Authors ("ALLi") is the world's pre-eminent association for self-publishing, a non-profit with thousands of members and a reach of hundreds of thousands of authors worldwide. Today, ALLi joins forces with Digital Book World 2018 to ensure authors have a place at the event that has been called "The Super Bowl of Publishing."
Digital Book World 2018 (October 2-4, Nashville TN) brings together the wide world of publishing, with guests including Pamela Paul of the New York Times Book Review, Simon & Schuster, Amazon, Scribd, and a keynote by legendary tech journalist Walt Mossberg.
Now, the conference adds the Alliance of Independent Authors, and its founder, publishing industry veteran Orna Ross, to its powerhouse program.
"Independent authors and other creativepreneurs and organizations who self-publish their own books have a different business model from trade publishing and scholarly publishing,” said ALLi founder Orna Ross, "but essentially the same needs around publishing information, advice, trends, tools and techniques. Digital Book World 2018 is poised to deliver those insights, and through this partnership, independent authors will be able to attend at a special rate and have access to the most essential publishing gathering in the United States."
A sizable ALLi Pavilion will be located within the Digital Book World 2018 Exhibit Hall, serving as a place where independent authors can meet each other, network, and share best practices. Under their diversity program “Self-Publishing for All”, ALLi is also sponsoring selected authors to attend Digital Book World 2018 with a scholarship that covers their pass and lodging, to make the event even more accessible.
