Tonya Evans-Walls named Award-Winner in the Business: Law/Reference category of the USABookNews National Best Books 2007 Awards!

It is with great pleasure that I announce Copyright Companion for Writers was selected as a "Winner" in the "Business: Law/Reference" category of the esteemed's National Best Book Awards of 2007.

Copyright Companion for Writers is a comprehensive, understandable layperson's guide that discusses how copyright is created and the benefits of copyright registration, why the "mail your manuscript to yourself" theory of protecting one's copyright (a/k/a the Poor Man's Copyright) is a MYTH!, the difference between fair use and public domain, what infringement is and how to avoid it or assert your own claim, how to obtain permissions to use copyrighted works in one's own work -- like song lyrics, pictures, and quotes, how to protect copyright in the digital age, and what writers need to know about copyright protection in other countries.
