Is copyright broken? That's the question the Alliance of Independent Authors AskALLi team is asking today. We don't think it's broken, but it doesn't always work. In a two part series starting today and finishing next Monday, 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. The Indie Author's Guide to Piracy.
You won’t need a tent or your wellies to join in the celebrations at ALLi’s first Indie Author Fringe Festival! Run in conjunction with London Book Fair’s Book and Screen Week at Foyle’s Bookshop, Charing Cross Road, the first fringe fest is an opportunity for ALLi members, and other independent authors, to make connections and get to know one another, enjoy panel debates and information and avail of tailored, one-to-one advice from top publishing experts and author-publishers.
And a fantastic opportunity to meet readers old and new.
The Indie Fringe Festival is part of our IndieReCon conference, running from the 15th to the 17th of April. Live, online and absolutely free to attend, IndieRecon is three days of essential self-publishing tips for any author, across the world. In keeping with that, if you’re not in London for the Indie Fringe Fest, do not worry – we’ll be livestreaming the whole event so you can tune in, wherever you happen to be located.
Those already confirmed to join us for the Live From London event are Porter Anderson, Ben Galley, Steena Holmes, CJ Lyons, Toby Mundy, Joanna Penn, Orna Ross and Debbie Young and many others.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be adding more speakers and giving you the full schedule of the events and talks planned.
