Katheryn, check out selz.com, or gumroad.com. You can look at their pricing options, user experience, and choose one for your website. Plus they are very easy to use.

I am not an expert, but I did run into this back in the early 2000's when our company was completing a safety manual and offering it to other companies in our industry.  At that time we did some research and the bottom line was that once the document was created, it automatically was considered copyrighted.  However, you could go through the process of registering it, but was not necessary.  I am not an attorney or expert as I said, but you might want to at least do a little research in that direction.

Hope that helps.

Hey, team DIY! I recently completed a set of illustrations for a friend's book. Having never copyrighted any of my work before, i am a bit lost (I can ALMOST put a "done" stamp on Dan's "when was the last time you did something for the first time?"). i visited https://eco.copyright.gov and went through the initial process of copyrighting. My question is if this is really necessary and if there is a "best way" to obtain a copyright(s) for a set of illustrations. i apologize for such a boring question.

Decided to get back into scrivener and trying to figure out how to get correct and nice looking epub formatting.  Introduction, custom index, etc.  Any 'experts' out there for scrivener?  :)

Hope During Heartache: 

True Stories of Emotional Healing from Infertility, Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Death of a Child




Have you ever dealt with the pain of infertility? Heard the devastating words, “I’m so sorry but your child is no longer alive?” Lived with a heartache so deep it feels as though there will never be any relief?


By answering yes to any of these questions, you know how it feels to belong to an exclusive club. This group is designated for men and women who have had to learn how to live with the pain of either the lost dream of a child through infertility or the crushing reality that a child you love is no longer with you - the result of miscarriage, stillbirth, or death. It’s a group to which no one wants to belong, but nevertheless, the list of members of this group is long.


If you find yourself enrolled in this membership, know that you aren’t alone. There are many who have walked this road that are waiting to come alongside and help. Just as the picture on the cover shows the reality of a fierce storm with the hope of bright skies, there is Hope for the storm you are currently facing as well.


Step inside this book to hear from twelve different men and women, through their own words, how they were able to find hope during their heartache. Let them offer you a chance to experience that hope for yourself.



Available at:  Amazon - amzn.to/1sKLduh

Special introductory price of $10.47 through October 8th for paperback

Only $4.97 for Kindle

Hi Guys, Dan issued a challenge in August - read something positive for 30 minutes each morning. And in six months our income will double.

I've been doing it for over a year - and what a difference. I feel different, things are happening. I am a better mom, a happier person doing more art. I just did a book I am getting ready to launch and just redid my art site.

I floundered for many years until I started doing this. I want to create encouragement and support for each other as we do this. So I just created a facebook page where we can connect and help each other. We can help each other with resources. What are we reading or listening to, how is it changing us?

Okay here's the facebook page. I'm calling it the Good Morning Challenge


Join in, let's go.
