1. "How do I copyright the book?" A common enough question: I explained that there's no real formal procedure for copyrighting a book. You just put the copyright symbol on the manuscript with your name and date, and that's done.
2. "What do I do after I get it wrote?"
Received in an email yesterday from a new client this amusing little aside:
"Our scholarly material may, at times, be more dense than your usual fare."
If he only knew.
