A thoughtful blog post from Sam Ellis, a writer who did some work experience at a publisher.
UK authors should have an had email today from UK PLR alerting them to the fact that they can automatically transfer all their book details over to the new Irish PLR system, to which they may be entitled to payments for borrowings from public libraries in Ireland. The process is simple and involves logging into your online account and pressing the “I agree” button at the end of the message which automatically appears on logging in.
There is only two weeks to do this, after which you would have to register directly with the Irish PLR system. I googled a few libraries in Ireland and found a number had editions of my books so fingers crossed there should be a few pounds (or will it be euros) coming my way from across the Irish sea in the future.
Especially in tough times like these, any opportunity for authors to increase their earnings is welcome news and so do take the opportunity to register for Irish PLR while it’s a ten second process.
