Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
If you plan to sell physical copies of your book out of a "brick and mortar" location, then you will likely need to obtain a vendor's permit from your local municipality.
In addition, you would have to collect sales tax.
However, if you are simply selling the rights to your book to a publisher, then you would not need a license to do so.
