Author compensation



Royalties 

We offer a profit share royalty. For instance, if a book is sold at £8.00, and the printing and shipping costs  come to £4.00, the author gets £2.00 and the company gets £2.00. There are no costs for e-books though we do not receive the full price you see online.
We have to cover certain costs before we start paying these:
 Set-up = £50.00
Yearly £8.40 to have the book distributed worldwide.
Proof copy = £21.00  
One copy to British Library.
Five copies to the deposit libraries.
Royalties are calculated  1 January - 31 December and paid by the following 31 March. They are paid once they are over £10.00. You're probably not going to get rich quick, but who knows? You can also opt to donate to the Creative Cafe Project.
And there are other things you can do ....

Author discount 

We offer authors a 25%  discount of up to 50- books in one order, 35% on orders for 51 or more. If you buy five or more copies in one go we waive shipping charges. Royalties are still offered on these purchases. You can use your discount on any Chapeltown book, not just your own. You may sell your book on for any price between what you have paid and the RRP. You can give them away if you like. Please, though, encourage people to write reviews.
