Author Earnings Calculator

The author sets the retail price of the print book. To determine what your earnings per print book will be, please follow the below instructions.

First begin by determining the Wholesale Cost of your print book. Do this by subtracting the Reseller’s Profit Margin (55%) from the suggested retail price. Next, subtract the print cost from the Wholesale Cost to calculate the amount of earnings you’ll receive for each book sold through the distribution channel.
(Please Note: Author’s personal book purchases do not qualify for earnings payments.)
