Question: How can SolaPress possibly afford to offer authors 90% of their profits?
Answer: SolaPress is a one-woman show where I work directly with authors to get their eBooks published and out to readers.
I’ve self-published seven of my own eBooks, and I know what it takes (and doesn’t take) to get an eBook live on sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, etc.
The setup fee covers the majority of those costs, most of which have to do with formatting the eBook for the different vendor sites, and the ongoing 10% commission I receive from your profits goes to covering the rest.
Why should you not keep the majority of the profits generated by your eBook sales?
As the author, you’ve done the really hard part in bringing the book to life.
Why should the publishing company make almost the same amount as you?
It shouldn’t, as far as I’m concerned. That’s why authors who publish their eBooks with SolaPress keep 90% of their profits?
