ROYALTY CALCULATOR

Your Royalty Total ($):

Please Note

80% of the payments we receive from all sales of the paperback and hardcover copies of your books are paid to you in royalties. We receive payments equal to the cover price, minus the trade (wholesale) discount and the single-copy printing cost (this is the profit margin of the transaction). Royalties are distributed by mail twice a year. No royalty will be paid on author purchases.

To arrive at your book’s single-copy printing cost, simply:

  1. Multiply $0.0165 by the number of pages in your book
  2. Add the color cover printing & binding charge ($0.90 for paperback or $7.55 for hard cover).
