We are a bunch of authors, trying to make the author business livable.

Writing is a marathon, not a sprint. Too many of us are suffering from burnout or are simply disillusioned with the current state of the business. At ASC, we believe there are better ways, more sustainable ways, to build your author business.

Mission Statement

Our mission within the Author Sustainability Community (ASC) is to foster an environment where we celebrate and share steps designed to assist with building a long-term career in independent publishing. Our goal is to support authors in achieving a scalable and sustainable career by providing resources and encouragement.

The Author Sustainability Conference is our associated in-person networking and education event.

Our Values

We strive for inclusivity and aim to create a safe, welcoming environment for all people regardless of gender identity, race, sexuality, neurotype, ability, religion, or other status or belief.

We are responsible stewards of the finances of this not-for-profit organisation.

We believe in Servant Leadership, working for the good of our collective community.

We are professional and respectful.
