The book business for me has been initiation by fire––with two feet firmly planted in free-fall. It’s been learn as I go, but it’s an amazing ride.
I recently wrote a “Pocket Guide to Players & Jerks” which I plan to give away as a gift at some of my scheduled book signings, but I wanted to get it copyrighted, so I had to figure out how to copyright paperwork. It wasn’t as difficult as I had anticipated. After I Googled to find my way, I went to the official website, http://www.copyright.gov Then clicked on the ECO (electronic copyright office.) They have an easy tutorial and it only cost me $35.00. If you’d rather do it all by hand, I’ve attached a video above to walk you through the process.
Finding a printer was a bit more daunting. There are tons of them, and they all have a wide range of pricing and options. I had to do my homework to find one that would suit my needs and budget. But now it’s done. One more item I can check off of my list! Yea!!!
Hop aboard my roller coaster and join the ride. There’s lots more to come.
