Copyright – A realistic look at copyrighting your work

Recently we’ve noticed a lot of comments and questions about copyrighting your work. Hope this blog will answer many of them. This blog started out to be quite simple. Define copyright, then tell you why should or shouldn’t copyright your work. Ha! That quickly turned out to be not so simple.

Testimonials

I have just posted my completed manuscript off to the digital editor and in doing so, instead of being highly excited and jumping for joy, I experienced a deep emotional wrenching that had me crying into my hands. I wasn’t sure if it was because I was just exhausted from the nearly two-year process or it was because I was handing something precious, a part of my heart and soul to the world to pass judgement on. However, I did have the comfort in knowing that this manuscript was the best it could be and part of this I have to thank Writing Allsorts. Robyn and Bob completed the proofreading and the results were excellent, despite my requesting a very tight timeframe. They added suggestions, offered advice and most importantly, gave me support at a time when I was wobbly and losing confidence. I submitted a manuscript which looks professional, has been assessed by experts and I am one very gratified author.  Chris Stuart. “For Reasons of their Own.” Shortlisted for NZ Booklovers Award 2021

“Robyn provided my novel The Promise with the finishing polish. She was professional to deal with and delivered exactly when and what she said she would for an excellent and competitive price point. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.”

I must admit that I had been quite daunted to submit my first novel for editing. Robyn and Bob have just the right approach to nurture me through this process as well as provide relevant and honest feedback. Being unfamiliar with the publishing world, I was able to put my feeling of vulnerability at ease in their capable hands. Their insights have provided me with encouragement in developing as a writer and with skillful suggestions to enhance my novel through to a published version.
