Our royalty policy varies depending on how the book is sold.

* If you buy the book directly from Piscataqua Press and sell it independently, you keep all the profit.

Example: If the retail price of the book is $15, and you spent $7 to have the book made by Piscataqua Press, then you profit the full $8 from the sale.


 

* If the book sells in RiverRun Bookstore, you make 70% of the bookstore profit.

Example: If the retail price of the book is $15, and it cost RiverRun $7 to have the book made by Piscataqua Press, then you profit $8 times .70 or $5.60.


* If the book sells online, you receive 70% of the net profit, we receive the other 30%. The net profit is the retail price of the book less printer, shipping, and vendor fees (Amazon, the distributor, etc.). Six months after the publication of the book, you will receive your first royalty. This will continue quarterly from that point on.

Example: A $15 paperback novel that is 250-300 pages would typically end with a $3 payment to the author. ($15 retail less %20 to distributor=$12 less $7.50 to the printer= $4.50 less 30% to Piscataqua Press= $3.15)


*Ebooks work the same way as selling a book online, but without the printing or shipping costs. We take the net profit sent to us quarterly by the sales outlet (kindle/nook) and split it with you 70/30
