This is from Peter’s excellent blog:
“If you are a published writer in the UK you probably know that if you register with PLR you can receive a very modest payment if your books are borrowed from a public library. What you might not know, however, is that the government intends to cut the amount of money it gives to PLR in the future, which of course means less money for writers. If you want to let Gordon Brown know what you think about this, you can sign an e-petition on the 10 Downing Street website.”
As Peter says, payments are modest, but I know I for one will welcome them when I’m finally published. It all adds up — so I’m off to sign. If you are a UK writer (or just have a soft spot for them 😉 ), you should maybe consider it, too.
