Boost Your Author Bookkeeping Skills
Some of the best things about being a writer include seeing your books in print, watching fans' eyes light up when you sign their books, and reading those unbiased 5-star reviews from bookworms who have never met you in person.
Regardless of what genre you write or how many books you have published, however, there is one area that authors collectively dread, and that's taxes. How many times have you reached the end of the year only to wonder how much you earned from book sales, what you spent, and which items count as write-offs? And did you make more than you spent?
