Determining the word count is easy, as there is a feature in your word processing program that will provide you with the document's "statistics." For example, in Microsoft Word, just pull down the Tools menu and choose Word Count. Note that if you choose to set your audio book's list price higher than those above, you might sell fewer audio books, though your royalty percentages will be greatly increased.

All sales of the audio books earn you, the author, a portion of the sale. These royalties are paid monthly and are accompanied by a sales statement. Click here to be directed to our detailed royalties page, which provides information on how much you will earn on audio books sold.
