Amelia Island is a special place for writers. Authors not only connect with each other, the surrounding natural beauty invites creativity and collaboration. This place loves and nurtures writers — and we love it right back.
As a matter of fact, Amelia Indie Authors is a love child. OUR love child. Love of story… love of writing… love of the island… love of other writers. It is also a child of frustration and lots of late night conversations.
Despite our varying genres and experience levels, the founders share a great many values. Each, for example, has devoted large chunks of time to supporting and mentoring other authors.
Each founder also shares a deep disappointment (!!) in professionals who take advantage of writers — especially writers who are new to the indie author scene.
Those influences encouraged us to put our heads and hearts together to come up with something different: an affordable way for writers to access high-quality services while also helping one another.
Are you committed to making good stories better? Extending a helping hand to another writer? Continuous growth as an author?
What if you could pay a virtual visit to your island paradise any time you wanted — and were saving money in the process?
Amelia Indie Authors is a co-op for established authors, emerging writers and those with serious intent. We’re always looking for qualified and committed members to collaborate with us in our ongoing mission to make good stories better.
We realize that not everyone is a fit for what we are doing, so we ask that you start by filling out this simple application. One of us will get back to you promptly.

How Much Does it Cost?
Hang on… First, you’ve got to get approved. As you might imagine, it breaks our hearts to see authors get ripped off. We’re generally a peace-loving people, without hate…but preying on writers? That could push any one of us over the edge.
Amelia Indie Authors won’t take your money unless we think we can help you.
Membership (aka “Beach Access”) gives you introductions to editors and proofreaders we have used. First class cover designers. Tools we like. And the ability brainstorm or get feedback on your burning questions. Oh…and the blog hops and live chats… other members…. and…
Yeah — Sounds Great, But How MUCH???
We are offering an introductory, early-adopter co-op membership price of $60 per year. So quick…fill out your application and, if we think you’re a fit? We’ll send you a link to pay for your membership.
