I have a question for some of the more experienced forum members here. In our research we have found that if you do not register your book with The Library of Congress before you publish your book you will not be allowed to sell your book to libraries around the country and around the world. First question is this true? Second question is I have applied for a Library of Congress number already and have been informed in 2 reply's from The Library of Congress. Must I have my book printed but not published before I send the book into to them? In our research we have come across some who have said the wait could be 2 years to get placed in the Library of Congress system. We can not wait that long. And I don't know who could that seems way to long to us. We are going to self publish with both Create Space and Ingram Spark so can we go ahead and publish with these two services before we send in the printed book to the Library of Congress? Thank you very much ahead of time for your reply's. Thanks Tommy Wilkens
