50% more royalties when you self-publish

Self-published authors can earn around 75% royalties per ebook (instead of around 25% usually offered by traditional publishers). Moreover, with print-on-demand self-publishing you can earn around 40% royalties per print book (instead of around 8% usually offered by traditional publishers). Traditional publishers print thousands of copies of your book and distribute them to bookstores. For this, they take large royalties from your book sales. However, Perpetuity Publications do not take any royalties because they set up your self-publishing instead.

Print-on-demand warehouses print whatever number of your book that has been ordered by an online-buyer/wholesaler/bookstore/distributor. This empowers you to sell your print book in thousands of stores with zero warehousing, be it soft paperback or hardcover book. With self-publishing, you are in control of the profits and you can see all your earnings online in real-time with sales data/reports for global distribution channels. You can update your books and adjust book pricing in tandem with your new campaigns/promotions - with no delays. Traditional publishers can only provide you with a royalty statement usually every 6 months. These are long complicated sales statements that might require an accountant to help you understand the statements. Therefore, self publishing makes it easier to manage and track book sales.

Don't rush to sign contracts or book deals

The best way to explain 'self-publishing' is to compare it with 'traditional publishing'. If you negotiate with a traditional publisher (provided they give you a book deal), you will need to sign their publishing contract which allows them to take a high percentage of royalties from your book sales. Inevitably, bookstores and book retailers (e.g. Amazon) will also take a percentage of royalties from these sales. If your regional traditional publisher agrees that your book is worth their investment, they will print many copies and distribute copies to local bookstores in that region. Nowadays, many aspiring authors prefer to start with self-publishing before negotiating with a traditional publisher. By starting as a self-publisher, an author can show proven book sales, which gives them more leverage in negotiations with a traditional publisher. If a traditional publisher rejects their book or the negotiations fail, the author still has the option to continue as a self publisher for a steady income.

The best self publishing companies should not expect you to sign a contract to give away your book rights. For example, Perpetuity Publications do not take any percentage of royalties from your book sales. Perpetuity Publications will make your print books available for local bookstores to order online. You only pay the percentage of royalties to bookstores and book retailers (e.g. Amazon), which is inevitable anyway. Local book stores constantly order new books from retailers/distributors. There are many ways your book will appear on their radar. For example, new books like yours, are advertised to bookstores, retailers/distributors via daily/weekly catalogues and email alerts. Perpetuity Publications are experts on how to publish a book and how to promote a book by self publishing.
