At Author Reputation Press, we give our authors the freedom to set a competitive retail price for their book and receive all of the proceeds from each copy sold either through our online storefront or our extensive distribution network including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This provides authors a unique advantage in the self-publishing industry and lends their title competitive edge in the market.
Bookstores expect to be able to return books that don’t sell and receive credit for them. This is called Bookstore Returnability Program, where bookstores buy two or three copies first of your book in order to assess whether it will sell before buying multiple copies outright. Bookstores are more likely to buy your book if it is certified as returnable.
The Work will be enrolled in the Program based on either condition:
(a) if the Work is already available for sale on the Effective Date of this Agreement, on the first day of the next calendar quarter after receipt by Company of both the signed Agreement and payment of the applicable fee for the Program selected by Author below (“Fee”);
(b) if the Work is not available for sale on the Effective Date of this Agreement, on the first day of the next calendar quarter after the Work becomes available, provided that Company has received payment of the Fee from the Author prior to that time.
The final price for your book will be determined based on your final manuscript’s page count, while your royalty will be based on the following calculation: Retail price – trade discount – production cost = royalty.
