how do i get pay to publishing a book.
I am a writer, and I what to publish a book for a living. How Do I Get Pay To Publish A Book. I check the web, all I see is how much do I have to “Pay For A Book to get publish.” I don’t what that answer. Can any writer who can help me get some money.
Honestly, and I hate to be a bubble burster, but nowadays that is really really hard to do. In the past, publishers would give a really good author an advance on their work and after the work was done, would print thousands of books to deliver to the stores. The Internet has changed the game quite a bit. It is very very hard to get picked up by a publisher. And I wouldn’t recommend planning on feeding yourself and your family from a “career” in writing books. As a fun hobby, on the side of a real job, with the potential always there to make it so that your dream is still alive, that may be more realistic.Why do I say the above? Because I just finished writing a book myself. It went like this… self published through lulu.com, spent $500 on 50 books or so to give to friends and family and then nothing. So I then converted it into a Kindle ebook, and still nothing. I created a free audiobook version and a website and still only friends and family to this point. Honestly, 1 year of my life is gone and that was the least rewarding experience of my life LOL. I mean I know that there are success stories out there, but they are few and far between and these people push their works non-stop. They do podcast interviews, write posts on everything out there, do book readings in local establishments, etc. etc. etc. I was not willing to do those steps as it was just a hobby for me.The problem with today’s technology is that a book or a compilation of music is nothing special anymore. Literally ANYONE can do it and there is a sea of millions of amateur books and songs out there that nobody really cares about except for their creators.If you are going to write the book, do it from the heart, and if you make money all the better. But by all means do not expect to make a living from it or I think you will be highly disappointed and be out a lot of your money and time.
how much does a book writer make.
i was just woundering how much a person gets paid to write a book. Because i was just thinking about writing my own book. Its always been a passion of mine.
Author’s get contracted advances on their books depending on a number of factors – genre, print run, marketing, country it’s published in, exposure of author and/or topic, etc. An Advance is essentially a prediction of how much the publisher feels the book will make. For example – book is going to retail @ $20.00 – author signs standard royalty agreement at 10% (which is high for first time authors, but low for established, veterans). The publisher estimates the book will sell 20,000 copies in it’s first year.So the math works like this 10% or $20 = $2.00 per book. $2.00 x 20,000 = $40,000. So the author is given a cheque for $40,000. Should the book sales exceed the initial advance (in this case 20,000) than the author collects royalties based on individual book sales over what they were advances. The Royalty payout could be monthly, quarterly or yearly, depending on the agreement with the author. 3 years goes by and the book has sold 50,000 copies in total – this means the author has earned $100,000.If a book does well, authors can negotiate better advances and royalties for their next project – if not, the may have their advance reduced.The country the book was published in makes a big difference as well. In Canada, 5,000-10,000 copies equals a bestseller, so if a publisher estimates your book will sell 7500 in it’s initial run, that shows you they are confident about it. In the US, it takes roughly 50,000-100,000 sold to equal a bestseller. The UK, 30,000-60,000 sold, etc.Harry Potter is a phenomenon that no one predicted. At the time, the first book came out, the publisher was predicting it to be a modest success in the UK with some possible carry over to North America. She was advanced for I believe about 30,000 copies. And then it takes off like wildfire – the rest is history. I remember reading in that in 2002, in the US alone, she made close to $10 million in just book sales, let alone all the spin-off productJK Rowling, etc are the exception – proving that runaway success is possible but no where near a guarentee. Stephen King wrote 6 novels and dozens of short stories before his first book, Carrie, was published – and even that one was rejected by most publishers. It’s much more common for a new writer to get a standard contract and then through hard work and proper marketing, build their career to the big money level.Hope this helps – good luck
If you sold 1 million books how much does it cost to publish a book.
You obviously don’t understand how the traditional, legitimate publishing industry works. The publisher pays the author, not the other way around.If the author is paying the so-called “publisher,” then it’s not really a publisher; it’s a printer or a vanity press or a flat-out scam.
how much does a bestselling author get paid like overall for a book.
because i heard that even bestsellers get a poor salary. **** man
This is a hard question to answer because it is such a wide field, but I will attempt to do so…You mentioned bestsellers. Bestsellers get 6-figure amounts or higher. Bestselling authors are generally millionaires.Jo Rowling who wrote Harry Potter, is the first Billionaire author, but Steven King is not far behind.**Yes, I said Billionaire, not Millionaire**I have seen different figures on Steven King’s income and net worth, but they are all in the hundreds of millions (or higher).So, if you have a bestseller, you are sitting pretty.Now the average writer is another matter. Your first book might only sell for $5,000 to $10,000, but a good agent can often get you $40,000 to $50,000 to start. Of course if your book sells more than the initial estimates, you still get a commission on all sales, so for a book that sells well, a low starting offer does not mean much. You will eventually make a good living on a book with good sales.This morning I read a blurb that Sarah Palin’s book, “Going Rogue” had 700,000 sales in the first week of release. If she only makes a dollar off each book, she will have $700,000 for this past week’s sales and of course, I am sure she is making more than a dollar a book… minus agent’s fees of 15%, of course.If you are a writer, good luck with your future sales, and may you become a millionaire in your first couple weeks of print. (Only a few authors, those with bestsellers, really make the big money, though.)I hope I have answered your question.
How much do first-time or new authors get paid when they publish a book.
A novel for example.
Well when you are going to get published you sign a contract where the publishers give you an advance usually ranging from like 2,000 dollars when you first start to millions (which is very unlikely-nearly impossible-for a first time author). Once you’re book sells enough copiers to equal that of your advance you get royalties, money for every book you sell, but it varies for each publisher beause some give royalties even before you sell enough copies to equal that of the advance
How much do first-time or new authors get paid when they publish a book.
Assuming it does well.
First time authors barely if ever make bank with their publishers, as they often sell under the advance. You see, when your publisher takes you on, they give you an advance, for a first-timer, it will be under 10 thousand dollars. Your book must sell enough copies so the publisher makes that amount back, if it doesn’t, don’t think that publisher will be publishing you again. If it does, you make a royalty, which is most likely .05-5% of what the book sells for. Or, not very much money at all. If you sell a couple thousand books after breaking even, you’re not going to get much money from that. But, your publisher will probably take you on again. That’s what you really want.Let’s say on the off chance your book sells a million copies, and it sells for 7 dollars, and you get 3%, you would make 210,000 dollars. That’s a lot for a first time author, as most authors who have been publishing books for twenty years don’t make that much a novel. If that happens, congratulations, but it most likely won’t, in fact, you likely have a 75% chance of not even breaking even. I’m not saying this to discourage you, unless you’re just somebody looking for an easy way to make big bucks, than I am saying this to discourage you. If you truly want to get published for the art, you won’t care how much you make, because odds are it will be liveable if you have a partner or second job. And remember, odds can mean nothing, the odds were stacked against JK Rowling too and look at her.Best publishing houses? Any one that will take you, provided they are legitimate.
How much does an author get paid for a book.
How much does he get paid per a book, or it depends on how much it does sell? If it’s the last option then how much does he get paid for every million copies get sold? 🙂
The author gets a royalty for each copy sold. This is a percentage of the price of the book. (It varies as to whether the price the publisher uses is the recommended retail price or the price that the copy actually sold for, but that’s probably outside the scope of this question.)The royalty percentage depends on the format of the book – for paperback, it’s around 8%, for hardback around 12%, and for ebooks it’s hovering around 20%. That’s with traditional publishing. With self-publishing, the author gets to set the retail price, and therefore controls how much money they earn per copy. With self-published ebooks, the author gets between about 35% and 85% of the price. With self-published print-on-demand books, the printing company charges a certain amount to print the book, depending on the page size and number of pages, and then the rest of the price goes to the author.With traditional publishing, the publisher gives the author some of the royalties in advance. This is supposed to give the author money to live on until the book starts selling, but nowadays it’s not really enough. It’s usually around $5,000 to $10,000. The author doesn’t get any more money from the book until it’s sold a number of copies equal to the size of the advance divided by the per-copy royalty. Getting to this point is known as earning out the advance, or just earning out. A lot of traditionally published books don’t manage it – the size of the advance reflects the publisher’s estimate of how many copies they’ll sell.
How much does books a million pay for my DVD.
Well it all depends what’s on that DVD. However, it ranges from just a few pennies to maybe a dollar if they pay you in cash and maybe 2-3 times that much if you take it as a store credit.
How much does Books a Million pay per hour starting off.
It depends on what position you are applying for, Derek. Just a clerk position is generally minimum wage. There are a bunch of Assistant Manager positions that you can apply for, depending on where you live or are prepared to move to. They are usually open for negotiation.I provided a link to their corporate site below. You should go there and fill out one of their profile forms. Might make a difference.Best of luck to you, and hope you have a great day.
