Those of you who are Americans working at this part- or full-time, how do you have things set up tax-wise? Any incorporation?

THUNDERDOME LOSER 2019

I did a book on Royal Road that was moderately successful but still underperformed for me. I think it is a cool way to consider dipping your toes into self publishing something genre/nerdy. I did a video breaking down my thoughts and talking about what I learned from the experience:

Thanks for making this. I appreciate the behind the scenes look. The whole concept of Royal Road is fascinating, and I just encountered it in the web serial thread. And I'd never even heard of LitRPG until last year.

Not sure I want to write for it, but... it's worth keeping in mind anyway.

There’s a lot of a stuff on there other than litRPG. I read one for a while about an older woman who got sent back to her body as a teenager and got a second chance at life with all of her adult experience. It was set just like in high school and had no magic or weapons or other nerd poo poo

Sure. I meant I'm kind of fascinated with both that site and the LitRPG... genre? medium? simultaneously and separately. I should just read through some stories on that site and see. The issue is time.

Part of me is curious if you changed the characters ages and kept them as cats whether it would work. A lot of people grew up on Redwall and so forth, maybe they'd be more open to a story featuring animal protagonists that wasn't necessarily for kids. There's already comics like Blacksad and so forth that do this.

Also things like Night in the Woods, which is definitely not YA.
