The Crafty Writers Creative Writing courseDer Crafty Writers Creative Writing Kurs Kurs
I gave up my full-time journalism sixteen years ago with the intent of starting a creative writing profession. These are some of the many ways I try to make a living with my writing: The royalty is an established profit share. This, in turn, differs from publishing house to publishing house, but is on averages between 10 - 12% for printed music.
In the case of children's illustration work, bonuses are divided evenly between the writer and the illustrated artist, so you get only half of what you would get for an adults' work. Bonuses for ledgers distributed via co-publishing or self-publishing services (e.g. Create Space, Matador, Instant Apostel etc.) - whereby you bear the cost of distribution yourself - the bonus is significantly higher (30 - 60%).
Keep in mind that traditional publishing houses do not ask you to cover the costs of publishing, so you have to recover it from the sale before they do. At the moment I have three different publishing houses. Twice a year two of them receive bonuses, one of them once a year. I' ve written my own Create Space volume and it is worth it once a moth.
Writers must be registered for the Public Lending Right (PLR). You will receive a one-time lump sum if you are writing free-lance journal, magazine and newspaper content. These vary from publisher to publisher and will be discussed in advance. Anthology and booklet reviews and papers are also eligible for ALCS payment, so don't miss to sign up.
However, you should always ask for a way to promote your book at the show. Amazons offers a fee for the book sales through your website when you register for the partner program. This is not just your book, but any book (or product) you are linking to on your various web sites or forums.
