Author pay is on the decline in the UK, while while publisher sales are rocketing.
Author pay consists of royalties from traditional publishers, or an agreement of profit based on what a book packager or service provider will offer.
This article is a follow-up to a recent story we published about how traditional publishers are especially not for best selling authors. as discussed in the UK publication, The Guardian.
The Guardian’s story headline is ‘Writers and publishers trade blows over plummeting author pay levels’.
Now is the time to print your own book so that you can earn greater author pay. A survey of 5,500 professional writers shows pay deceasing fir UK writers by 42 percent since 2005, to 13.7 percent in 2018.
While author pay is decreasing, ‘publishers are seeing their sales rocket’. Let’s fix that!
