Copyright issues if publisher no longer exists & book is out of print?
The copyright has most likely expired for anything published prior to 1923. You should be able to publish a new version and even add your own comments and update pictures. You can copyright your own "creative work" but you can't copyright the original bits. I know people who have taken books like these and made the content into a series of videos, audio tapes, coffee table books...your creativity can take you a lot of places and you can really share your enjoyment of this content with a lot of people around the world. There's a very good product that gives you a step-by-step process for doing your own copyright investigation and also gives you ideas for how you can use this to make a variety of new products.

How do I get my book published?
After printing out the pages, put it away from at least 6 weeks, the bare minimum. After that, read it through without making any changes or marks. How does it sound to you? Then, take a red pen and go crazy, making little margin notes, crossing out words, etc. Look for grammar, punctuation, syntax, etc. Buy a copy of Writer's Market and look for agent listings. When you've found one suitable, send out a query letter based on their guidelines. If they want to see the rest fo their book, either send it via email or snail mail, depending on the agency. If they agree to represent you, you are ahead of the ballgame. Now look in Writer's Market for publishers suitable to your genre. Send out a query-or not, some do not want them- specified to their guidelines. Wait 6 weeks to 2 months for a response. If, in the end, you're book will be published, the editor will suggest changes, and I recommend you listen, these guys know what they're talking about. Expect 6 months to a year and a half for it to hit the shelves. But expect rejection. Every writer has gotten it, you just need to eat it for breakfast and move on
Book Publishing Question?
Congrats on finishing it! That's quite an achievement. I've seen too many questions from people here at Yahoo asking how to publish a book and they haven't even begun to write!! First you need a current copy of Writer's Market. It's one of the best tools in researching where to send your story. You'll want to consider finding an agent who publishes books similar to yours. You'll want to make sure the agent is legit (no agent charges a fee. They are paid commission based on your royalties.) Use the preditors/editors link below to verify whether your chosen editors/publishers and/or agents are reputable. And there's a wealth of information here at Yahoo Answers. Go up to the "Search for questions" field above and do a search for "publish writing" or "publish novel." As I mentioned, this question has been asked and answered numerous times and very often excellent information has been provided. Best of luck to you! §♥♥♥§
Does the book "An Unkindness of Ravens" from One Tree Hill really exist, and if so, where can I get it?
Well, umm, unfortunately not. There is a book of the same title by a totally different author, but no you cant actually buy the book from a bookstore. But i think if you but the fifth-season dvd box set, the book is included, but I think its just abook of the quotes from Lucas' fake novel(: Like: Suddenly it was as if the roar of the crowd, the echo of the final buzzers, the cheers of my teammates were all sounding from 1,000 miles away, and what remained in that bizarre, muffled silence was only Peyton. The girl whose art, passion, and beauty had changed my life. In that moment, my triumph was not a state championship, but simple clarity. The realization that we had always been meant for each other and every instinct to the contrary had simply been a denial of the following truth - I was now and would always be in love with Peyton Sawyer. Like That! But yeah(:
(First Time Author) Do I have to pay a book publisher ANYTHING for ANYTHING to publish my book?
DON'T HAND OVER A PENNY. There exist organisations called Vanity Publishers. Basically, they take the money of those authors who want to see their name in print - and that's it. Once they have your money, the job's over as far as they're concerned. They'll send you a copy or two, but otherwise, your work will never see the light of day. A legitimate publisher will pay you. Not very much as a first-timer - in fact, the sum they offer will probably be instulting, but take it anyway. For the publisher to make money on your book, it has to sell, so they'll put some marketing effort behind it. And, just maybe ...
Do Gothic People still exist?
Yes, they do, if you're talking about "Goths" as in the sense of the people who were in a certain clique in high school but not the historical sense... Just because people choose to dress that way doesn't mean they're "Goth". I like black clothing, plan on getting tattoos, don't want piercings and wear chains. However, I also like to wear flowing and flouncy bright colored objects...it depends on my mood/where I'm going. (I.E. I can't go to work like that since I work at the University's police station and I'm a Student Police Aide and have a uniform). Okay, not all Wiccans are Goth. Sure, some Wiccans *happen* to be Goths, but there are not "evil chants" in Wicca and there's no Satan in Wicca, so there would not be a "little satanic book" with them. They might have a Book of Shadows, a collection of their spells if they choose to study witchcraft along with the religion but Wicca ISN'T witchcraft. Also, they might have a Mirror Book, which is basically a religious journal about the person's individual spiritual journey. I'm Wiccan, and yeah, I may have dressed as you described in your question sometimes but I wasn't *ever* classified as "Goth". I was all over the place: in Japanese and French clubs, Theatre, hung out with the goth kids; I basically got along with every group except the jocks because I didn't play sports. Please get your facts straight about religions before you claim they do something that they don't because of misconceptions people have or people claim to be Wiccan who haven't even looked into it seem to understand, but don't. A group of people that are classified as a clique can't go "extinct" as they are not dead but simply dressing different, etc. They also *hate* to be confused as "Emo" from what I witnessed in high school. So, I hope that helped.
What would you do if your children told you that they don’t believe in God (they’re atheist)?
Seems as if most of the answers you’ve got until now are from atheists who - of course - wouldn’t mind or even would be satisfied. I believe that is not the kind of answers you expected or need. The point of your question seems to me the difference between the parent’s faith and their way of raising their children and the lack of faith on the side of the children.I have made this experience and I can tell you that it hurts on more than one level, but there’s not much you can do besides praying. You know the seed has been sown and you have done your best to raise them (although I sure started to doubt that!) They know what there is to know, but it’s up to them if they believe or not and it’s up to God to reveal himself to them.At the point when they declare it they’ve made up their mind (for now!) and there’s no use discussing, arguing or convincing.I love my children and they know, no matter what they believe, they don’t reject me, nor that I’m a believer, I tried hard (and still struggle) not to comment or criticize but to show them what following Jesus means by living it, not by words.Of course I still hope that the seed will grow, that they will one day return to Jesus, I’m praying for them, I guess they know it.Of my three children only one is a Christian at the moment, being born into a Christian family does not mean that you’re going to be a Christian. That can be devastating, but imposing your faith on others does not work. I never wanted them to fake it for my sake. I need a lot of trust in God that he will fulfill his promise made in Thessalians 5 that God who has called us (and both my sons had made a decision for Christ) will finish what he has started and that our children will be blessed because of us (1 Corinthians 7,14).
If President Trump asked his supporters to come to Washington, DC, with their rifles to prevent a future Democratic Congress from impeaching him, would you go?
PLEASE BRING IT ON. Me, and millions of other democrats and retired vets, would proudly get our guns and defend America from right wing racist fascist filth. The repukes have become a brainwashed mob of terrorists. Trump is a treasonous, vile, repulsive, corrupt, elitist, born rich, spoiled, hooker-addicted, entitled brat who went to Ivy League college on daddy’s dime, chickened out of the draft 5x, inherited everything he has, went bankrupt 5x (a form of welfare), and built his life of extreme greed on the backs of illegal immigrant construction workers and shafting blue collar vendors. Not to mention he put his own kids on the Whitehouse payroll while they continue to run his businesses & use their govt positions to make deals for daddy. He’s also the first president to insult veterans on Twitter, to skip Arlington & WW2 ceremonies because of rain and his hair, and the first to refuse to spend Christmas with troops (despite a VA hospital just a mile from the Whitehouse). Not to mention he held a phony fundraiser during the election and stole from veterans. He throws tantrums on Twitter like a 4 year old. Directly uses his position to degrade and sow distrust of the free press and the FBI/DOJ. He blatantly encourages violence and threatens jail time against his opponents and protesters. Not to mention, his ENTIRE CAREER in NYC has been one of extreme corruption and attacking disabled veteran vendors. Trump only cares about himself, his ego, his wallet, and his penis. And, truth be told, the evidence he committed treason is staggering - he deserves the death penalty or prison. Many of us would love to watch him hang.Many of us think the wall should be built, as the only way to MAGA is to purge American soil of the profoundly brainwashed filth that follow traitor trump. THERE IS NOTHING I WOULD LOVE MORE THAN TO SACRIFICE MY LIFE TO DEFEND THIS NATION ONCE AGAIN AND SEND RIGHT WING PIGS TO HELL WHERE THEY BELONG.
What are the most important leadership qualities?
“Leadership is not about being in charge. Leadership is taking care of those in your charge”Leadership is all about inspiring your teammates. You don’t inspire them by showing how amazing you are, instead you inspire them by showing them how amazing they are. If you want to lead people, you have to walk behind them. If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, YOU ARE A LEADER.I have tried to jot down , the most ideal traits of a true leader below:1.VisionGreat leaders have a clear, exciting idea of where they are going and what they are trying to accomplish. This quality separates leaders from managers. Vision allows leaders to tap into the emotion of their employees.2. CourageCourage means that you are willing to take risks in the achievement of your goals with no assurance of success. As there is no certainty in life or business, every commitment you make and every action you take entails a risk of some kind.3. IntegrityThe main value that almost all executives agree upon for their company is integrity. The core of integrity is truthfulness. Integrity requires that you always tell the truth, to all people in every situation.4. Strategic PlanningGreat leaders are outstanding at strategic planning. They have the ability to look ahead, to anticipate with some accuracy where the industry and markets are going. Leaders have the ability to anticipate trends well in advance of their competitors. Because of increasing competitiveness, only the leaders and organizations that can accurately anticipate future markets can possibly survive.5. FocusThe ability of a leader to make sure that everyone is focused and concentrated on the most valuable use of their time is essential to excellent performance. Leaders focus on results, on what must be achieved by themselves, by others , and by the company. Great leaders focus on strengths in themselves and in others.
