A lot of them will have a net turnover of about 2000 printed and about 60% of the printed (1200 copies) book. Let's say the printed version will have a $17.95 front page cost for a large format commercial book. Let's say the e-book is set at $9.99.
Let's say the book has 320 pages. You must keep the page number of the printout separable by 32, front and back included, so that you can evenly sign. Begin with the cost of the work. The cover artwork will cost another $1000. A $1000 fee will be added for text creation, text layouts and data files converted to Adobe Reader and eBooks in Adobe Reader format.
Sum of non-recurring overhead: Sum of non-recurring overhead: Fixed costs: You have about 20% of your printed output returned (if net turnover were higher, your share of returned products would also be higher), so you need to produce about 2,500 prints to make promotional prints possible. The printing cost is about $2 per copy or $5,000.
Authors' fees for the printed version amount to 7.5% of the coverage fee for the first 5,000 issues of net turnover, 8.5% for the next 5,000 issues and 10% thereafter. Authors' fees for the e-book editions amount to 25% of the proceeds of the sale, which corresponds to 70% of the covering fee for the e-book.
