Question: Self-Publisher logistical questions
I've updated your account type from Author to Publisher ("Publisher" account simply means that the client will be uploading books for more than one author).
There are a couple of relevant options for your situation:
1) Submit the book through your account. You will remain the client of record. Royalty payments will go to you.
2) Submit the book through your account, and then once the book is finished and it's ready to go live, ask us to move the account to a new account in the author's name. At that point, the author will become the client of record, and payments will go to the author from there on out. In this scenario, you would no longer have access to the client's sales reports.
I hope this helps!
PS-- Congrats on launching your new business!
