Please take a look at this petition to protect the organisation which handles Public Lending Right in the UK, and sign it if you agree with it.
Public Lending Right is money collected from libraries for each loan of a book. An author whose books are in libraries registers with PLR, and will then get a once a year payout, the amount depending on how often their books are borrowed. It's an important source of income for many writers, but now it seems the government want to scrap it.
Please share this with your writerly and other contacts, thank you!
