Go Big or Go Home with 100% of your Royalties

picture1When authors decide on the best self-publisher for their book, one critical area, royalties, can be an often overlooked aspect. For many authors, the word “royalties” can cause confusion as to what this actually means.

Simply put, “royalties” paid to authors are a percentage of revenue earned on book sales. Publishers determine their profits as what’s left over once your retailer (yes, retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble take a cut when they sell your book) and production costs are taken into account, and then they determine their royalties by calculating a percentage of those profits to give back to authors.

Some publishers take a hefty percentage of those profits for themselves and give their authors a small amount and other publishers pay varying amounts based on where your book sold from. Neither scenario is truly beneficial to authors.

At Outskirts Press, however, we do things a little differently. We put our authors first, and we know how important it is to earn a fair amount when your book sells. When you publish with Outskirts Press, you get 100% of your book’s royalties. And Outskirts Press pays 100% author royalties regardless of where the book sells.

We follow the formula of…

Profit = Retail price – retailer profit – production cost

We feel so strongly about authors knowing what royalties they will receive that we even have and easy pricing calculator that you can use at any time-even before you start publishing. We invite you to calculate your royalties, your revenue, or earnings by visiting our easy online Pricing Calculator, which makes it easy to set your retail price and to see what your royalties will be.

Of course, the benefits to choosing Outskirts Press don’t end with the royalties, as important as they are. You also retain 100% of your book rights, unlimited wholesale and retail availability, publishing imprint and ISBN flexibility, and complete print-run flexibility—ensuring that you can print exactly however many books as you want, whether you want one or one thousand.

Our flexibility and adaptability to your needs, coupled with our phenomenal services and staff, is just one of many reasons Outskirts Press was rated #1 among self-publishing companies by Top Consumer Reviews in 2016 and 2017. You can reach out to one of our publishing experts at 1-888-OP-BOOKS or by starting with a down payment on your publishing package. Your professional publishing consultant will work with you to select the best publishing package for your book and will help you with details like your book cover, interior and you guessed it, royalties.

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY


“I will use Outskirts Press for future books that I am writing. I am grateful for the help and how wonderful they all were for answering any questions that I had.”

Ann Marie has lived in Arizona since 1984 and has found Arizona to be filled with numerous stories of wonder and intrigue. Her favorite by far, is The Lost Dutchman and all that surrounds it.

Well, for starters, it is a gold mine and it is said to be the greatest find of all times and unlike any other gold mine ever found. They are called the Superstition Mountains because they are said to be the sacred grounds of the Thunder God of the Apache Indians. It is also said to be the sacred burial grounds of the Apache Indians. It is said that whoever goes looking for the mine will be dealt with by the Thunder God himself.
– Ann Marie, author of Into the Unknown
