You also have to figure on the tie-in money factor.If you're an author and you write a book based on someone else's intellectual property (IP), then if that IP takes off and starts making money in other venues (possibly because of the quality of your book), then you get NOTHING from those extra revenue streams.But if you write a book based on your original IP, and that IP really takes off, then you get the potentially lucrative licensing money.Now, granted, very, very, VERY few fantasy IPs get that kind of break. But, well, if you think that you might have a chance to be the next JK Rowling or Stephanie Meyer, why risk that chance by working on someone else's IP?
