PLR petition

PLR (public lending rights) allows an author/illustrator a small earning from each lending of their work from a public library (6p per lend). The government want to drastically cut this funding.

There are but a few JKRowling's, Stephanie Meyer's, and Quentin Blakes. Many of us, if not most of us struggle to make ends meet and every penny makes a difference. Please, please show your support of PLR funding by signing this petition.

Good post, I have signed the petition.
I saw you mention this on Twitter, and reTweeted, and I shall now put it up on my own Blog, I think :)

the meeting went well, miss Dover... got a little lost on the way to the building, but I'm told that's a regular thing (it is for me, anyway! :0) ) Will just have to cross fingers now. Will let you know how it goes.

Jon, good job, Sir!
