The copyright page is most commonly found on the back of the book's title page.
The copyright page is standard in any book — whether it's poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, or comic.
Self-published books are no different, so they should include a copyright page.
As a part of the front matter, a book's copyright page is very important, especially if you want to protect your writing from plagiarism.
The front matter also includes sections such as the epigraph, the dedication, the foreword, the prologue, etc.
Copyright protects your work from unauthorized reproduction and copyrights are issued by the U.S. Copyright Office.
