I know we have a number of authors here on these boards. I’ve had a couple of my books published, but it was many years ago, and now I’m looking for info on current things.
I’ve been approached by someone I once had a business relationship with to write a couple of new books. They’d be sold to readers in e-book format and as real books via print-on-demand through Amazon. I may or may not make any money off them, but they’d be fun to do, and I have a little time right now.
My agent, however, has never handled an e-book or a PoD, and (understandably) doesn’t want to spend time on something that may or may not (she says “won’t”) make any money. So I’m left to hash out the general terms myself before sending the contract to a lawyer for vetting (I’m not totally stupid).
So my question is: Is there a standard royalty rate for e-books? What about for PoD paperback books?
Whoops. So my questions are: Is there a standard royalty rate for e-books? What about for PoD paperback books?
