Posthumous Publishing, Part 5, Royalties

The Pros and Cons of Publishing Posthumously
For the success you'll never experience in life...

Part 5: Planning for a Contested Last Will and Testament

Families are at best unpredictable, especially when it comes to money or sizable royalty checks. The first question to ask: is there anyone in your immediate family whom you trust completely? If the answer is yes, that person should have sole access to your passwords, username and PINs. If the answer is no, look further afield to distant relatives, long lost cousins, or wealthy aunts and uncles. They often fit the bill, especially if they have means of their own. In all cases, bear in mind copyrights last for a mere 95 years. Grandchildren and great grandchildren should be fully cognizant of all and any publication dates.
