Hello all,

I started a blog and was wondering if I need permission to reference another authors book with a quote? Example,  Blake Snyder's book, Save the Cat, where he points out... "


Thanks for the advice in advance!

Hey, yeah that is completely fine. All you should do is ensure you reference properly (like in Harvard or APA style, etc), and if you wish, link to either the Author's site or book itself.
