There are few things better than a good story well told. Amelia Indie Authors is dedicated to exactly that: the things that turn good stories into great ones. The transformation from quality to excellence. Our co-op model promotes collaboration, embraces great ideas, nurtures the committed author, and supports them in polishing and publishing great stories. While some see our assessments as ‘never good enough,’ others appreciate the relentless pursuit of excellence, in all aspects of our work.
Our vision is to be so good at what we do that organizations seek us out for speakers and events, and that indie bookstores and readers look forward to new releases because they trust that any book published via Amelia Indie Authors is well worth their time and money.
Collaboration is at the core of our being. AIA started out as a small group of local authors helping each other through creative development, events, online critique partnerships, mutual support, and friendly advice. Collaboration through blogging, special promotions, and social media increase and extend our reach and impact. Collaboration can be difficult as well but, when those involved are committed to excellence in communication and relationship? Working together creates a powerful force. You’ll get a feel for that when you click here to meet the founders.
Members represent writers of all stages who have stories to tell and seek excellence in their craft. They may join at any level of writing prowess, and allow our rigorous process, publishing resources, and collaboration with others to lift them to a confident, professional level. The combination of creative collaboration and affordable author services helps develop, nurture, and elevate independently published books to their highest quality.
Our learning center (aka the Treasure Chest) provides articles, sources, and references to help every author improve skills and understand the facets and nuances of the publishing world. Interaction with other authors strengthens all of us and enhances our authors-helping-authors ethic. We have recently been able to expand this area to include some classes on video so that members can go back to them again and again.
Published authors benefit by connecting to others just like them who are strengthening platforms, promoting books and events, and seeking new audiences. The enhanced reach that comes from announcing events and releases together cements their belief and bonds with one another.
