(a/k/a Marketing is Worth it!)
Yesterday, Isaac and I spent the day calculating royalties for all of the Emerald authors. Our books earned over $6000 for the last 4 months of 2020, with sales throughout the USA, in bookstores, via Kindle and internationally in Europe, Great Britain, Canada, and India. Most of that cast went straight to the authors. Just so you know, this is one of the pros of what’s called “hybrid” publishing: authors always earn a majority of the book sales, ranging from 60 to 90%.
