No one enjoys thinking about dying, but let's face it. We are all going to do it. I have wondered what would happen to my work, and my royalties, when that I pass.
This morning, someone in the Writers' Cafe on kindleboard.com asked the question. So, what does happen to our work when we die, and who gets the royalties? Those are very important questions, and every author (even first time authors) should know the answers to them.
Someone else posted a link that takes care of this. Here is the link:
If you are an author, or starting to write, don't wait. Read the article, print out the document they provide, and take care of this as soon as possible. Then, you can rest easy. If something happens and you are no longer here, the people you love most will be the ones who control your work and reap any benefits.
