The Watchdog Desk of The Alliance of Independent Authors monitors the self-publishing industry in two ways.
1. We have a Partner Membership for services which align with our Code of Standards and go through a vetting process.
2. We identify rogue services which overcharge, over-promise, under-deliver, or in any way exploit authors.
The ratings below are the opinion of the Watchdog Desk. Ratings are based on careful appraisals of multiple criteria, including pricing and value, quality of service, contract terms and rights, transparency, accountability, and customer satisfaction.
