On this week’s Writers Ask, we’re answering a couple questions spurred on by our recent episode on copyright and piracy. Namely: How do libraries and used book stores fit into the mix? And how are both self-publishing and indie publishing (two different things!) affecting the major publishers? We’ve also got a couple more rejections from Lee Klein, and Mike is called on to defend his love of the movie Pitch Perfect.
If you want to pre-order a copy of Lee Klein’s Thanks and Sorry and Good Luck, just click on the linked title. And don’t forget to enter the super-secret offer code from the episode to claim 20% off the cover price. If you want to read more from Cory Doctorow on libraries and ebooks, check out his full post here.
As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or download it as an mp3 file.

If you want to ask us a question, send us an email, or hit us up on Twitter. Or show up at Tom’s house with a couple 40s and a smile. I’m sure his wife won’t mind.
