Wow – I’ve just been doing through the process of getting my book up on Amazon as a softcover –
I want it to be full color, because of all the photographs – and they’re saying the minimum pricing for the book will be US$38.18.
Of that, I will get a royalty of less than $8. And for their “expanded distribution – to other retailers etc – I get a royalty of 70 cents. Yes, 70 cents per book on a sale price of $38. The rest goes to Amazon for printing etc.
If it wasn’t full color it would be roughly the same price as my other book – about $16 or so for the softcover. The print version of The Way, My Way, is black and white.
I’m sorry about this – I want the book to be affordable- but there’s nothing I can do about it. That’s the price that amazon has set, because it’s color. And I really do think this book needs to be in color, because there’s 85 beautiful photos in it…
This is not one of them – I just like the shot. Two beautiful ladies, so happy…
