Are You a Canadian Author? Don’t forget to sign up for PLR

Are you a Canadian author who’s been published in print by a traditional publishing company? If you are, you’ll want to sign up for the Public Lending Right Commission. Why? If the PLR finds your book in Canadian libraries, they’ll send you a check once a year (depending on how many libraries your book is found in, within the sample that they check). It can be hard to make a living as a writer, and every bit counts! You’ll need to photocopy the title page and copyright page of each book, and provide the title and ISBN. And if you’re already registered but have a new book out, don’t forget to update the PLR (through the form they send you with the check).

The PLR only accepts registrations from February 15th to May 1st by snail mail, so if this is something you want to do and haven’t done yet, print out the form and mail it in!
