Who We Are: We are the Florida chapter of the Alliance for Independent Authors, the only nonprofit organization for the self-publishing writer. ALLi is a growing support organization with internationally recognized advisors and with MeetUp groups forming around the world to help Indie authors like you. Please visit us online at http://www.AllianceIndependentAuthors.org.

Meetups are free for members ($10 for non-members). Annual Membership is required to officially join our local chapter. We intend to be a devoted group with a high commitment to each other and to the wider self-publishing community. We cordially invite you to attend your first meeting free and see how we can help you on your publishing journey.

What We Do: Our MeetUp group is all about you...the Indie author. We plan to discuss and develop skills in all business areas of self publishing: industry, resources, how to, marketing, social media, public relations, distribution, and more. If you need to develop your business skills — if you want a local support team to help you stay on target with your goals — then this is the MeetUp group for you.

When We Meet: We are in the process of setting up a regular date and time for our meetings, as we build the group we will establish a reoccurring schedule.

What To Bring: Bring everything! Bring your ideas. Bring your books. The Indie author has to get comfortable with self promotion. In this group, we encourage and share in each other's journey.

We hope to see you at the next MeetUp!! :D
