  • Has ALLI ever heard of certain publishers that might be suspected of being shady?
  • If I make a change to my book, do I need to register a copyright for it again?

About the Hosts


Orna is a traditionally-published author who took her rights back from Penguin, then republished her books herself with the titles and treatment she’d always wanted for them. In 2012 at the London Book Fair, she launched the Alliance of Independent Authors. Her work with ALLi has landed her on The Bookseller’s “Top 100 people in publishing” list. Orna writes award-winning fiction and poetry, runs a Patreon page for poets and poetry lovers and an active author website. She’s on a mission to help eradicate creative poverty through digital publishing and enterprise. You’ll find her, most days, on Twitter and she posts poems and quotes for poets on Instagram: @ornaross.


Michael La Ronn is the author of over thirty science fiction & fantasy novels and author self-help books. To date, he has published over 1.5 million words of fiction and nonfiction. Since publishing his first book in 2014, he has produced a prolific writing portfolio while raising a family, attending law school at night, and working a full-time job in the insurance industry. Michael has a fan club, and you can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.


Dan Holloway

Dan is a poet, novelist, journalist, editor and performer. He loves the writing and research process but comes into his own when given a microphone. He is the rabble-rouser in chief of The New Libertines, who have been touring the UK’s festivals and fringes since 2011. In 2010, he won the international spoken prose show Literary Death Match and competed at the 2016 UK National Poetry Slam Final at the Royal Albert Hall. He also runs the editing and copywriting business Rogue Interrobang, working with academics and non-fiction writers. When Dan’s not writing he runs ultramarathons and appears on cheesy TV game shows. Find Dan via his website, on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn.
