I am designing a day planner for busy moms. I will soon be designing a logo for my own day planner company. When the planner is designed (probably late this year), I will register a new DBA (Doing Business As) with the Utah Dept. of Commerce at Utah.gov (in 2012). Then I will make a nice package in a nice box (my company colors) and mail it to some publishers. It will have a few details (not too many) about my planner design and will propose a meeting. It will have a web site listed, which I will have ready, for her eyes only. I will sell usage rights, but get royalties and maintain the copyright. How much are usage rights like that worth? How much royalty should I ask for?
I wrote 1 and a 1/2 pages out, by hand, for my novel. It is just set up. He’s in heaven, going to the law library. It’s in 1st person. My husband thinks it is evil for the writer to be the opposite sex when it is 1st person.
I contacted my client today and we discussed a bottle design, a package design, and business cards. I am awaiting further information from him.
