A Pre-NaNoWriMo Reminder

November is National Novel Writing Month. A month when tens thousands of writers across the world commit to writing 50,000 words of a book.

Let this be a gentle reminder to register your copyright before you start shopping your novel around, and particularly before you publish it.

While instances of brazen copyright infringement like this aren’t the norm, a registered copyright can mean the difference between getting a lawyer to take your case on a contingency (no money up front) or having to pay a substantial amount to retain counsel to vindicate your rights.

Registering your copyright is a fast and easy step to take to protect your work.
