It Doesn't Grow on Trees

For the stout of heart who are interested in seeing the financial reality of publishing with a small press or e-pub, take a look at Pat Rice's Money Matters post on her blog. The only comment I would make is that I think Pat's figure of a 50% royalty on an e-book is a little high. Anywhere from 30% to 45% is more in the normal range, and many publishers figure the author's bottom line after seller discounts have been taken out, so you're actually making even less.

  1. Yikes. I read Pat's blog yesterday. Um, yeah, not for the faint of heart, huh?

  2. Mags, we all need to know this stuff, but don'cha just hate it? It's way too depressing.
