costs vary greatly, as do royalty percentages and net return.
The factors which most affect book production, distribution, and
sales are: choice of typeset printing or print-on-demand; minimum
number of books anticipated; book format (hardcover, etc); number
of pages; number of images; black/white vs. color; and pre-publishing
publishers, if a book is pre-approved for publication, may cover
pre-production and production costs if, in their analysis, they
have some assurance of sales of 1500 or more copies, if the author
accepts the industry standard percentage for author royalty, and
if the author concedes the final authority to them.
following are cost ranges normally associated with book publication
and the general guidelines for UniqPublishing costs.
