Copyright information

Hello, all;


I have about another week or two before my first book will be ready to submit to CreateSpace.

My question is about the copyright.



I have to add in a copyright page and copyright information.



#1: Is there a good template I can use

#2: Do we copyright our book before submitting, or does it get copyrighted once we submit and it is accepted?



Thanks all

Hi Wayne,


This is the boilerplate text I use. Feel free to use it or modify it.

For your second question, your book is copyrighted when you create it. Some people register their copyright, but it's optional.
