The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) today announced a new extension to their relationship with IngramSpark, that will provide ALLi members complimentary access to over 39,000 retailers and stockists through IngramSpark’s extenstive distribution network.

The offer is valid until December 2014, and is open to registered ALLi members, using a specially allocated code.
"Ingram Spark is one of the most exciting services in the self-publishing space,” said ALLi Founder and Director Orna Ross, welcoming the deal. "It offers the widest range of distribution options, has a truly global reach and a unique relationship with bookstores. Most importantly, Ingram is listening closely to feedback and very committed to providing a great service for authors.
