Don’t forget to copyright your work and don’t use the “cheap man’s way for copyrighting” . In the past the advice I’d receive
on copyright protection was to mail the document to yourself. This way you would have the stamp from the post office as proof for when the document was created.
For $35 online and I think it’s $65 by mail, you can protect your work with a document from the United States Copyright Bureau. Form TX is the form you use for literary works. It takes FOREVER now but eventually you’ll receive a document with your copyright registration number for your manuscript. You can go online and even find your document if you lose your registration form.
