Isaac, you can use just your website and email. Many authors and publishing companies use a mail box, either USPS or a mail box store. I love this and appreciate you have this available for us. Question: I do not want to place my personal address on the copy-write page. Can i just place my website and the email address where to contact me? Thanks for this insightful post on copyrighting and isbn. Everything is useful to get my first guide on project writing publishing and acceptable. This is really valuable, thanks for taking your time to share this valuable taught with us. I just finished written my book and just got to know about copyright and come across this post.
For future novels I write, I will list myself as author and the Trust as claimant when registering with the Copyright Office. On the copyright page of my next novel, would I then list the Trust after the copyright symbol and year, or would just my name be sufficient or do I list both the Trust and my name?
And do I need to revise the copyright pages of my previous novels to reflect the Trust? Margaret, I have had a trust listed on the copyright page of a book I worked on. I would recommend you check with your estate and intellectual property attorney for the correct wording for your book.
I have read everything and still have one basic question. I am just an individual indie author with no company. What do I do about the Imprint? Can I use my own name as author and publisher? What are my options to be as simple as possible? Thanks for your help and I hope you still monitor this link. Regards, Richard Bell.

The copyright information the year the book is being published—not written or edited belongs on the copyright page only not on every page. Using one of the examples above in this article is all you need for the copyright information. These numbers correspond to the year the book was published and this is a first printing since all the numbers from 10 to 1 appear.
In old days the lead casting had the numbers on them, and when they printed another set edition of a book they simply struck off the number. I am perhaps the last of my generation to learn hot-type. Zil, there are plenty of us still around who learned hot type, locked up forms, and did make ready.

I will be very thankful for your precious help from now on. You own the copyright merely by creating them. What exactly are you trying to do? Hello and thanks so much for this info. If I do not own a registered copyright, can I still have some verbiage on my title page saying that the images, story, etc. Yes, Elizabeth, you can and you should. The copyright registration has to do with potential lawsuits and damages. So you can still do it now. I recently noticed my earlier books showed the copyright notice in a slightly different way from my later books.
I checked Google and the Copyright Office and got a ton of somewhat contrary data to sort through—but then up came this article and as soon as I saw it was on TheBookDesigner my search was done. Thank you yet again, Joel, for this fabulous and trustworthy website! Good luck with your books, and thanks for leaving this comment today. It should give you all the information you need. Shelly, those numbers are part of the CIP cataloging in publication data right above those numbers needed and used by libraries.
Hi So informative your website is! I still did not understand how to get it from where to get it as an author.
