We all know what royalties are, right? They're the "cha-ching" sound we hear after all our years of hard work. 

But before you clear off a space to roll around in your cash, make sure you know what you're doing. Do you know how to report royalties on your taxes? Which is better - royalties on net or retail? If you don't know the answers, this is a must read.

Yep. I think G+ hasn't quite hit the tipping point that Facebook has, but it's getting there.

From the perspective of a publishing house, it's easy to perceive first-hand the challenges faced by any indie author starting out on their publishing journey alone, so any tips that help make the process simpler and easier are welcome here.

That's why +Andrew Chapman's latest column is especially poignant today - with more and more authors taking the self-publishing route, there are caveats they ought to be aware of before diving in. Today - and in the next installment later this month, Andrew will discuss several important "gotcha's" to watch out for.

Story
Tagline
Author & Publishing Entrepreneur
Introduction
I've had the entrepreneurial bug as long as I can remember, earning my first self-employed dollar at the age of 10 and starting my first official company at 18. Since then, I've launched a few more companies, as well as many other projects that didn't quite become official businesses.

Almost all my ventures have centered around publishing in some way. At age 21, I self-published my first real book and landed my first book deal. (Self-publishing was a big deal back then.) Over the following years, I earned a bachelor's degree in publishing and am now the author of several books, both self- and traditionally published.

Currently, I'm focused on my latest book, NO BROWN M&M's! And Other Entrepreneurial Lessons from over 300 Legends of Rock & Roll, which is the first book to present business lessons learned from rock stars. (It's a revised and updated version of my book, Rock to Riches: Build Your Business the Rock & Roll Way [Capital Books, 2008]).
