The Law of Unintended Consequences

I've gathered all the pieces to put my first self-published book into play. Cover? Check! Formatted for everyone? Check! CreateSpace print cover and formatting? Check! ISBN? Check! Copyright?

Copy what?

Guess what's shut down with the current government issue? That's right. Along with the National Park System, the Copyright Office is closed for business. According to the website, I can (and I will) file electronically to preserve my date of publication, but it won't be processed until all this mess is cleared up. Well, they didn't say 'mess.'

That ol' law of unintended consequences: It'll get you every time!
