Royalties or Profits - Publishing Spot FAQs
How is the price of my book determined?
Book price is determined by page count, which is influenced by your choice of book dimensions (6x9, etc) as well as font size, the word count of your manuscript, and other factors. For information and guidance on the price of your individual book, please refer to your Publishing Services Associate.
How does Publishing Spot calculate Royalty payments?
All royalties will be payed directly to you into your bank account and no share of royalties will be kept by Publishing Spot. All we keep is our book publishing fees that you pay at the time of order.
Can I change the price of my book later?
After the Retail Price is set, we reserve the exclusive right to modify the retail price of the work, should production costs change or market conditions warrant. You must approve such retail price change prior to it taking effect. If you do not approve the retail price change or we cannot contact you to obtain approval for the retail price change, all or certain formats of the work will be removed from distribution.
How am I paid for my royalties?
Royalties are calculated on a calendar quarter basis. Royalties due will be paid in United States Dollars (USD) within ninety (90) days after the end of each calendar quarter. The timing of actual receipt of the payment by the author may occur after these issuance dates, due to a variety of factors including, but not limited to, transit time in the mail. Royalties may be paid via check or electronic funds transfer (EFT). You must have a United States bank account to receive Royalties via EFT. We may charge you an additional fee per check if you elect to receive payments by check or draft when EFT is available. We may accrue and withhold payment until the total amount of Royalties earned equals or exceeds seventy-five USD ($75). All held Royalties will be paid in full within ninety (90) days after the end of each calendar year.
