Does it have to be something exclusive, or are previously published/soon to be published works allowed? Pretty much all of my time is going into my series at the moment, but I'd love to get in on something like this.
This... ^^^Ted Cross said:I've long been curious about how people make these boxed sets work. I assume one person 'controls' the book and somehow distributes royalties? Not saying people are going to be untrustworthy, but how do folks know they are getting the proper payments? Doesn't the government assume the person 'controlling' the book owes taxes on the full amount (I'm only recently published, so maybe I'm wrong about the various sites giving sales info to the IRS)? Sorry for the questions--I've just been thinking about these things in case I ever got involved with a boxed set.
Your author friend would be liable for the entire tax bill this way. All of the income would be considered his legally, and he would have to pay the taxes.ccruz said:The fantasy I'm looking for is Sword and Sorcery kind of stuff.
As for the tax stuff, I'll be consulting an author friend who just did a boxed set. He said one person took the reins and they split the money equally.
