A comprehensive guide to all things references and how to make sure you’re not breaking common copyright law.
You’ve written your book (or perhaps you’re in the middle of it) and you’re at the self-editing stage. Obviously, you’re going to be sending this to an editor (you’d be a fool not to), but before you do, there are some comprehensive checks you need to do.
Having worked with many authors, both seasoned and new, one thing we’ve noticed is that most of them don’t understand the legalities around referencing in their work or – and more commonly – they use images or photos within their book without getting copyright permission or understanding why this is important.
So, in this article, I explain why it’s important to know what to reference, how to reference and what the legalities are in regard to images and other information you might reference.
