In the publishing arena, royalties are a percentage of the price of a sold book. Larger publishers may pay advances on royalties if they expect the book to sell very well; royalties from the bigger publishers are between 5 and 10 percent of the retail price of the book. Other publishers, like Publishing Prep School, offer their authors royalties based on the books that are actually sold. If you decide to publish with Publishing Prep School, the Book Publishing Agreement will outline what royalties you’ll receive (usually starting at 25 percent of net), when you’ll receive those royalties, and quarterly reports of your books sold, returned and damaged.
What Clients are Saying
Kira’s contribution to our work was priceless. Her expertise, compassion, attention to detail, and commitment made it possible for our work to come to life. I highly recommend Kira.
When I decided to self-publish my novel, Stories, I wanted a highly knowledgeable and experienced editor. Kira Henschel’s expertise elevated my work from amateur to professional. Kira also guided me through book publishing in a warm and compassionate way, giving me the confidence I needed in a sometimes uncertain process.

Kira Henschel was such a fabulous find. Her editing for my novel, Bolt, was spot on and perfect. As I read through her revisions I kept thinking how right she was about each point. Exceptional attention to detail.
