Pricing & royalties

It’s impossible to sell books that are priced way above the average market price. A major benefit of publishing with the Write Place is that you decide the retail price of your book and your royalty.

The only set price per book is the printing cost: you determine the royalty, wholesale cost (cost at which the retailer can buy it), and the retail price.

Sample retail price for a 200-page, black-and-white interior, color cover, perfect-bound paperback book

  • Printing: $4.50
  • Royalty: $2.00
  • Wholesale: $6.50
  • Retail: $13.00

Printing

The majority of books published with the Write Place are printed using a print-on-demand process. This means that you can buy one at a time or a hundred at a time. The upfront costs are lower—and you don’t have to store a thousand books in your basement.

Distribution & availability

With our full distribution services, potential readers will have no trouble finding your book. It is available for purchase by any bookstore or library, and is also readily available online at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, the Write Place website, and more.

All distribution is taken care of automatically—books are shipped to buyers with no time or cost investment from you. We’ll keep track of each book that is sold, and send you royalty checks for as long as your book is in distribution.
