Hello Lovely is a partner member of The Alliance of Independent Authors!
I am really pleased to let you know that Hello Lovely has passed the strict criteria set by The Alliance of Independent Authors and is now a partner member offering design and publishing services including image research to members. The organisation is a great way to connect with writers, designers and other suppliers and I was keen to sign up because of the application process.
Their watchdog team identifies publishing services which exploit authors through poor service, muddled fees, lack of expertise - all fails that can really prevent books being published or done well. That affects an author’s confidence and makes what should be a challenging but educational process, a horrible experience. The ALIA took a week to review this website, look at my credentials and services against the ALLi Code of Standards which are there to help authors make informed decisions. I’m so pleased that Hello Lovely passed this review and I am thrilled to be part of the team.
You can find out about working on a publishing project with a new page on the site. I’ve shared my experiences and given an sample workflow so you can see what Hello Lovely can do for your book or managing a publishing project. If you have any questions please get in touch and I’ll do my very best to answer them for you. You can do this by email or with a comment below.
