Hola! I’m back from Peru, which was quite an incredible trip. I will have a rundown on the week and an exhortation about the wonders of voluntourism when I’m able to pull it together.
In the meantime, thanks so much to the incredible guest bloggers! I caught up on the comments yesterday and not only did they write awesome posts they also did an admirable job facilitating the discussion in the comments section. Thanks for that.
I’m also pleased that everyone gave Eric the proper encouragement to start a blog. He is now the proud owner of Pimp My Novel, which is already proving to be an indispensable resource in the publishing blogosphere. Set your blasters to “subscribe.”
Now then. As I catch up on my overflowing Inbox, just a short post for the FAQs. Reader Riley Corbin wanted to know if you need to file for copyright before you submit to publishers.
The short answer: no, you don’t have to.
The slightly longer answer: Please read this post by Jonathan Lyons that deals with everything you need to know about copyright.
