Transcript (may contain errors): Most traditionally published books earn between four and eight% in royalties. This is one of the many reasons authors choose to independently publish When you self-publish, authors typically earn a much higher royalty -between 40 and 60%. Most of our authors publish with Kindle Direct Publishing. KDP offers some of the highest royalties in the publishing industry. On print books through Amazon, authors earn 60% of the list price, less manufacturing cost. For example, if you list a 200-page paperback book for $15.99, you will earn $6.34 cents per copy. E-book sales work a little differently as there are no printing costs involved. If you list your e-book between $2.99 and $9.99, you’ll earn 70% in royalties.
