At Unicorn for Writers we will complete the copyright certificate for your self-published or unpublished book with the US Copyright Office.
The copyright page is where an author will note where portions of the book have been previously published, permissions to publish extensive excerpts, quotations from copyrighted works, and photo credits.
The copyright notice consists of three parts: the symbol ©, the year the book is published, and the name of the copyright owner. It is a practice of many publishers to use both the word Copyright and the symbol ©, but either is acceptable.
