How much will you pay me for my book?
We will pay you a percentage of the price that we receive on sales of
your book: the amount we receive is the wholesale price minus the
printing cost. The royalty rate will vary according to the amount of
work we have to do to publish your book. If we have to type your book
from a handwritten manuscript, we will give you a lower royalty rate.
If we receive your manuscript in suitable electronic format, we will
give you a higher royalty rate. The royalty rate will usually be in
the range of 2545% of the price we receive.
We may, at our discretion, increase the royalty rate if your book
sales exceed a certain level.
You will receive no royalties on books you purchase directly from us
at a discount price.
We will pay royalties to authors at three-monthly intervals. If a
royalty payment due to an author is less than £20, it is carried
over until the cumulative amount due is over £20.
To keep our initial costs as low as possible we do not give an
advance payment to authors.
