Public Lending Right to close

I’ve just found out that the Public Lending Right is to be closed by the government. For those of you who don’t know the Public Lending Right supports authors by paying us a small fee when our books are borrowed from libraries. Closing the PLR is both pointless and worrying. They’re a very good organisation who distribute funds efficiently. I hold them in the highest regard and I send out my best wishes and support to the people who work there. If you have a chance to support the PLR then please do so. For authors like myself who do not expect to make a deal of money from our writing the PLR provides an essential service which helps us to carry on working.
