Thankful for The Canada Council and Public Lending Rights

I am so thankful for The Canada Council who supports creators in all sorts of ways, including PLR or Public Lending Rights.  The program pays an annual stippend to authors and illustrators whose books appear in Canadian libraries. The program samples libraries across the country for book titles and the more your titles are found, the greater the amount the creator(s) receive (although there is a reduction as the title ages and there is also a maximum amount  granted per creator).  It’s a fabulous program for creators and I urge all Canadian writers and illustrators who haven’t yet registered their books to do so here.  If you aren’t an author, you are welcome to drop the current Minister of Heritage and Official Languages a line to let him know that you appreciate the support for the literary arts in Canada.
