There is no reason for your daughter to set up a separate entity if she is just an author. She will just continue to use Sched. C and can either make quarterly payments to the IRS or make sure the withholding on her husband's paycheck is enough to cover their taxes (presume they file joint).

A separate bank account and credit card would be in order if she has expenses, such as travel and supplies.
