    Accounting for authors is something we’re asked about all the time. Special shout out to John Box for suggesting the conversation.
    “How do self-published authors handle their income? Both part-time and full-timers? Are authors setting up LLC's or the like? Is this something that we can do on our own? Or is there a respectable service out there that can help us?”
    These are all great questions. Listen in as we talk about what we do on the financial side of being a career author.
