Is copyright broken? That's the question the Alliance of Independent Authors AskALLi team is continuing to ask today. We don't think it's broken, but it doesn't always work. In a two part series starting ending today—which started last week—we explore both piracy and plagiarism and the impact they're having on members as well as what you can do about them. With deep thanks to all of our members who contributed with insightful comments and a special thanks to John Doppler, our resident watchdog for his knowledge and contributions to the posts. This is the ultimate guide to plagiarism.
My guest this week is Roz Morris. Roz is a literary consultant, a book doctor, an instructor, a blogger, and even a ghostwriter. But the one constant in her life, through all her incarnations, is her love of literature, and she's coming into her own as a fiction author, writing under her own name.

My guest this week is Michael La Ronn, who many of you know as the co-host of the AskALLi Members' Q&A podcast. You also may know him as a video blogger, and writer of fantastic fiction. He lives and thrives at the border between genres, and as an African American author who was raised in a biracial family, he chooses to try to bring people together in these polarized times.

My guest this week is Eric Twiggs, an indie author and motivational speaker who is an expert in procrastination. In fact, it took him a little while to figure out that was his calling, and then he held off on writing a book about it. Now, though, the author of The Discipline of Now and One Moment in Time has some advice all authors can use on the value of getting things done today rather than tomorrow. So, without further delay, here's Eric Twiggs.
On the ALLi Twitter chat (#indieAuthorChat) we asked questions about Processes, Outsourcing and Automation.
My guest this week is Scottish author Lorna Fergusson, who has tried publishing the traditional way, but found that she enjoyed the control she had over her own work that comes with being an indie author.

When you start writing, your only concern is getting to the end of your manuscript. Even publishing is a distant concept. But eventually, if you stick at this long enough, the world of rights, translations and selective licensing opens up. The Alliance of Independent Authors’ ran a six month rights program, its aim was to open up the rights industry to indie authors. This is a write up of everything learned during those six months. This is the ultimate guide to selling book rights for indie authors.
