Welcome to The Independent Romance Authors Assoc.

Better Together 🦩

Introducing TIRAA - The Independent Romance Authors Association. 

A writing community that connects you to all things education, resources and publishing specific to self-published romance authors.

No matter your experience level.

No matter where you are in your publishing journey.

You want the support and inclusion that comes with a community of like-minded people and helps you grow your knowledge and skills as a self-published romance author.

Instead of tackling your writing solo, we’ve developed an ever-evolving space for romance authors to come together and share ideas, experiences and knowledge.

Our vision is to combine our reputations, reach more readers, and share the magic that romance brings to so many around the world.

We adopted the flamingo in our logo.

Here's what's included when you join the TIRAA Community

Exclusive access to our private community - available only to you and your fellow associate members. Enjoy daily interaction and insight with your community!

Access to regularly scheduled Virtual Writing Sessions across a variety of dates and time zones. Make your writing a priority by creating a daily routine of getting ‘words down’ and celebrating your word count goals with other members.

A monthly newsletter chalked full of the latest industry news and information so you can stay abreast of trends and practices in the world of independent romance publishing.

Live events such as interactive author interviews, educational workshops on publishing specific to indie romance, deep-dive masterclasses on craft and the business of writing, and more - all recorded in case you can’t make the live events.  

Access to our ever-growing library of video instruction. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – right at your fingertips!

Publishing opportunities in our themed anthologies.
