E-books

 

Having an e-version of their book is no longer optional for most authors. Sales of e-books have been growing rapidly over the last few years and in the US has overtaken sales of printed books. There are many benefits to readers and authors of having an e-book version.

 

* The reader has instant access to the book and can be reading it within minutes of finding it on-line

 

* Often, the e-book is cheaper than the print version

 

* The author / publisher does not have to shift stocks of books round the world to distributors

 

*  The distributor does not have to package and ship the book

 

*  The reader does not have to pay for delivery

 

Protecting the author

 

Distributors like Amazon protect the author’s work through Digital Rights Management (DRM). For example with Kindle books, a reader cannot transfer the book to a friend’s tablet.

 

Preparing a book for Kindle

 

Once we have access to a word file for the book and a pdf of the cover design, there is few hours work to prepare the book for uploading to the Amazon Kindle platform.

 

Pricing and royalties

 

Amazon usually offer 70% royalty to the author / publisher for books priced at $9.99 or less. For books priced higher than this, the royalty if 35%.

 

Example 1: On a book priced at $7.99 the publisher would receiver a 70% royalty of $5.93 minus delivery charge of $0.16 which is $5.43.

 

Example 2: On a book priced at $19.99 the publisher would receive a 35% royalty of $7.

 

Working with authors

 

Ohm Books offer a flexible service to authors. We can either charge a one-off fee to prepare the Kindle version, open an account on behalf of the author and let the author receive the royalty payments directly into their accounts.

 

Or

 

Prepare the Kindle version and manage the account on behalf of the author for no set up costs and share the royalties with the author.
