Author Jo Michaels discusses earnings of Indie authors and those published with a small press as well as those published with one of the big five.
If you've ever wondered why you should go Indie, this radio show gives you one reason: author payouts. If you take marketing and all the other jazz out of publishing, and just focus on the earnings numbers, it might give you some insight into just how many books you have to sell in order to make a certain amount of money.
I'll be breaking it down for you. Be sure you have pen and paper handy. This is going to be fun!
Our base numbers will be $4.99 for the ebook against earnings of $5k. I will NOT be factoring in KU pages read numbers or earnings.
