We simply have the client fill out the information needed for the correct copyright form and have them email or via mail deliver us their work. We take care of everything else.

The quickest finding trick I have is to use my browser and type in a question mark, a space, then the name of the subject (zip code, or company) I am looking for, and hit ENTER. Just like the laws of statistics, it works -- 8 times out of 10.
Another thing you can do for example ... Type in kinkos -- then hold your control key down while hitting ENTER. Your browser will take you right there. randomhouse is another one, zebra is another one, so is talewins for that matter. Just type in "talewins.com" and there you is. Now occasionally the web is busy and you have to come back to type in the http, etc, but quite often, you are sailing home free with just the name.
The third quickest finding trick I use is with engines
like Alta Vista
. Type in the name, or the category, and you get the whole ball of wax,
if too much information is available, narrow the search. For example, type in Death
and you'll get 314 entries. "Death Books" (with the quotation marks) will narrow
it to less than ten. Now, for a trick with the old codger. What if you hit a brick
wall and still don't have what you want? Well, when you hit a brick wall, choose
which way you want to bounce. Even if the page you hit has absolutely no links out
whatsoever, you can backtrack.
One thing all of us love is FREE Goodies. Search4Free Keeps you updated on the newest freebies on the web! A huge site with business opportunities, books, gifts, cards, software, clothes, and -- you name it.
Net-Temps... a world of jobs, neatly packaged. Billy Moliter has a terrific site here, easy to navigate, even easier to use. The jobs looked real, and you can even get your own desktop for job hunting. Uh -- when I mention REAL jobs, what I mean is that just a whole lot of companies advertise they have jobs, but don't intend to hire anyone. They are simply advertising to keep their names in front of more people, or to give a false impression of imminent growth.
Philately Exhibitions and collections.
Robin's Nest for Writers and Web Surfers is one of my favorite sites for writers. Cafe Au Lait has everything you need to know about Java all in one neat pigeonhole. And HTML heaven is right here beside it. Believe you me, there is enough html information here to earn you a B.A. at college. Included are special guides for writers.
Alexa is a free advertising-supported Web navigation service. It works with your browser and accompanies you as you surf, providing useful information about the sites you are viewing and suggesting related sites. Funny, I wasn't interested in that kind of assistance, but jumped right in for another program that monitored where I was going every day. Of course, they paid me for the privilege, and I dropped them quickly enough when I realized they were getting as smart as I am

To find Heroes, Single out a few pages in your genre who are exceeding successful and pop over to the Alta Vista site and, follow this advice EXACTLY now, In the Search Field, Type in link:http://www.writers.net -- replacing the url address of the site you admire where this one now is. What does this achieve? This will roll out a big long list (well, you can hope it is as big and long as this one) which will give you the linking pages that are sending people to visit the Hero Site you admire so much. Go to them, everyone linking to your hero, and ask for a link to your page. One last thing, remember the first advice I gave you.. make dad blasted sure you have a home page worth linking to before you go. Fail to do this and not only will you waste your time, you may very well kill any chances you have for going back in the near future.
National Address Server Given a valid U.S. postal address, this server attempts to rewrite the address in the proper format along with the ZIP+4 code. Try it out with your own name. If it is successful, you can retrieve a Postscript or a GIF file of the address for printing, with a barcode! You can also view a street map of the address, from 2 different Internet map sites (MapBlast and MapQuest).
