Traditional Publishing

Posted: September 30, 2015 in Uncategorized

Are you still trying to obtain a traditional book publishing contract? The question you should be asking yourself is, “Why are you wasting your precious time?” In case you are unaware of it, 85% of authors that have landed a contract with a publishing firm make little to no money at all on royalties. The way it works is the author might receive an advance up to $1,500, and no royalties will be paid until after the advance has been met. In most cases, an author never sees another dime due to return book fees that did not sell while in what few bookstores remain. Allow me to show you the real numbers an author receives in royalties through a major publisher. If a book sells for $20.00, the author might receive $1.30 per book, and that’s on the high end of the scale. Through Empire Publishing, the author can receive up to $9.95 per in royalties for the same book.

All publishers that might offer a contract require an author to have an existing well established platform and any advertising is the sole responsibility of the author who must pay for it out of his or her pocket. However, and here’s the silver lining, self published authors are making millions of dollars per year and are now the driving force behind sales for the publishing industry. So, I ask you again, “Why would you want to sign a contract and lose all your rights and royalties when you can keep the income yourself?”
