How is author royalty calculated?
Before 1st April, 2022 author royalty was paid on the PERCENTAGE on NET PROFIT (PNP) basis. From 1st April, 2022 our new simplified author royalty model has been adopted. Authors now get 10% of the MRP as Author Royalty per successful sale for both paperback and hard cover books.
Author royalty Payouts
Royalty is paid on half-yearly basis. Author Royalty is paid on first week of January and on first week of July every year.
Author Royalty Tracking
We believe in transparency. Every author is provided a personalized, private (password protected} royalty tracking page. On successful sales, the royalty is automatically updated on the page from where author can keep track of his own author royalty pending status. Post sale, it may take days to get the royalty updated on the same.
Production cost of a Book
As we are LOW VOLUME PUBLISHER, to minimize any financial burden on any counterpart (both Publisher & author), we print small chunks but multiple times as per requirement and market demands. This obviously costs an overhead, but rather than investing a lot of money at once, many author prefer this model. The printing cost goes a bit high with us but its worth considering the very low one time investment from authors end. We are loved by many due to our simplified model.

- Printing media & Printing cost
- Cover design

- Inner Illustration Printing & makeovers (If required)
- Handling Charges during production
