    And now for something completely different – COPYFIGHT


    Copyfight CoverToday I’m sharing something very different but very exciting with you.
    See this book here with the funky cover? Well guess who made a small contribution to it?

    Did you guess me?

    Now look at all the other cool people who contributed.
    I quote the back cover.

    John Birmingham, Linda Jaivin, Marc Fennell, Clem Bastow, Lindy Morrisson, Justin Heazelwood, Elmo Keep, Dan Hunter, Angela Bowne and others fire up the copyright debate like never before.

    One Click - Monique McDonell - Copyfight ChapterSo I’m one of the ‘and others’ and very proud to be one.

    This is a wonderful book that looks at the issues we face in the digital age when we all want to download it, read it, watch it and listen to it anywhere, anytime. The book examines how we deal with this now in terms of copyright and the affects it has on the individuals who created the original work.

    My piece is here called One Click For Chicklit.

    Edited by the very talented Phillipa McGuinness and published by New South Publishing It is available in all good bookshops.

    I am thrilled to have been included in this wonderful book.
