Pragmatic Bookshelf royalty payments

December 11, 2009 Leave a comment

Just catching up on some overdue reading, and I just read the royalty/payment rates that the Pragmatic Bookshelf people are paying. Those are some pretty impressive numbers, especially when they use wording like “40-50% of gross profit.”

I think that “gross profit” terminology scares people off a little bit, because it’s pretty easy to make “profit” disappear in a company. My guess if that most authors just want to be paid off of sales, like X% of all sales.
