On each audio book that is sold, you earn
a percentage of the sale (commonly referred to as a royalty). These
royalties represent revenue generated for you and the
actual royalty amount paid will depend on the list price of the book,
and where it is purchased.
We set a
minimum list price that your book can
be priced at based on its length. Setting your book's list price
at our minimum is ideal if you would like it to be priced as
competitively as possible (for example, a 1CD audio book's minimum
list price will be $9.95).
If you go ahead and decide to set your
audio book's list price at the minimum list price, then the royalties
are as follows:
30% paid to you
when we sell the book directly to consumers at full price.
15% paid to you
when we sell the book to stores or distributors at a discount.
50% paid to you
on the monies we receive for downloadable audio book sales.
All royalties are based on the amount we
receive for the sale.
The above percentages are miles ahead of
other publishers, who traditionally pay between 8% and 12% to authors.
We have an excellent program that allows
you to greatly increase your royalty percentages called, the
Bonus Royalty Program.
All you have to do is set the list price
of your book higher than the minimum list price.
For example: If your book is a 1CD
audio book, the minimum list price would normally be $9.95. However,
let's say you have chosen to set the list price
higher, for example, at $19.95. You have increased the list price by ten dollars.
Each time the audio book is sold at full
price by us, you would earn 30% of $9.95 PLUS an additional 75% of the
extra 10 dollars you added to the list price. This would be a total of
$10.50 paid to you on each sale. In other words, your royalty on these
sales would be a whopping 52%.
This kind of earning potential is not
miles, but light years ahead of traditional royalty percentages of
Using this same example, when the audio
book is sold at a 40% discount, such as to stores or when sold in
quantity, you would earn $5.39 per sale, or a royalty percentage of
This system provides a tremendous amount
of freedom that allows authors to set their own royalty percentage
while determining how much they would like to earn on sales of their
book. The only caveat is not to set the list price too high because
you don't want to discourage purchasers. Fortunately, our minimum list
prices are set low enough that you can easily compete, even when
setting the list price a little higher.
No other publisher in the world offers
such earning potential. No other publisher offers these kinds of
royalty percentages while allowing authors the freedom to choose how
their book will be priced when sold.
