Marie:

Your book was recommended in the December 14, 2008 edition of Parade Magazine.

WHAT, no royalties?!? Why in the world would that be, Ms. Marie?

Marie said...

It just wasn't that kind of book. It was work-for-hire, no royalties. I didn't originate the idea, was just a hired hand on one aspect of the book. There were also dozens of photographers, a designer, and an editor. Oh and map consultants and cartographers.

But as a friend's mom pointed out, I can still say "I wrote this book which sold xxx copies."

Ah, our old friend, Work-for-Hire, we all know him too well.
