I'm trying to publish my first ebook on Amazon Kindle and I have some copyright isues.
On the publishing process in amazon.com, I'm asked to chose whether this book is public domain work or not. I want to choose that it's my personal book and I hold the rights, but I don't know if I have to prove that.
Is it enough to put the copyright symbol, my name and year, for my book to be copyrighted and ready to be published? Can I use my pen name instead of my real name?
I'm not affraid of people stealing my work and sharing it. My concerns are related to Amazon reviewing stuff. They might not approve my book if everything is not perfectly set.
Thank you for your time and advice.I have a friend who wrote amazing book, tryed to sell it on kindle, but they decided not to publish it, claiming that this book is not actualy his original work (I'm convinced it is). And although all the e-mails he sent, they still refuse to publish it. I'm just trying to avoid that.
