Pictures for your book

Is everything on the Internet free? What if you see a magnificent picture/photo that is just right for that story you’re sending to a magazine? What if you’ve written a story and the publisher asks for pictures? Can you just cut and paste from the Internet? In Jan Fields’ article,"I Found This Picture Online -- Can I Use It?" posted on the Institute of Children’s Literature blog, she addresses this topic and whether you are violating copyright laws or not. To find out what is public domain and what isn’t, read her excellent article on how to deal with this issue.  

Your book is coming out and you’re thinking of building an online presence but don’t quite know how to start? Visit Chuck Sambuchino’s article, “7 Best Practices for Building an Online Presence,” on The Writers’ Digest blog, which shows how to start building your platform.
