Only a series can be registered by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

All work can be copyrighted and it is wise to do so but only a series can be registered by the US Patent and Trademark Office. Only series can be registered as trademarks, not individual titles, and common words can’t be registered at all, unless the public associates it with a particular use.

This is another blanket of protection a writer gets when writing a series as to why some including myself decided acquire this protection.

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I mentioned this legality because I was once asked why don’t I name the books something else besides “UnHoly? I was asked to removed the word “unholy” from the series. Saying some found it intimidating and brooding. Well, I’m sorry about that. I truly am but I can’t redone years of work and legality because a few find it not their taste. If they read the books they would see why they are called “Unholy Pursuit”. It’s a collections of stories about relentlessly pursuing people for trivial things and the reason given are very petty and small minded.
