Publishing with Butterfly Press

Selling Your Book – Author Royalties

Butterfly Press pays its authors a royalty of 20 percent on print sales and 50 percent on electronic (eBook) sales. For more detailed royalty information, make sure to read the publishing contracts associated with our publishing packages.

Royalties are based on the payments we actually receive from sales of printed or electronic (eBook) copies of your book, less any shipping and handling charges or sales and use taxes. We offer discounts to retail and wholesale customers, so the royalty amount you receive depends upon which type of customer bought your book and any discount they received.

All author purchases are royalty exclusive. The reason for this is that Butterfly Press offers authors considerable discounts when they purchase their own books. These discounts usually exceed the royalty percentage, ranging from 20 percent to 65 percent, depending on the quantity of books purchased. Contact support @ butterflypress.net for available discount.

Author royalties are paid according to calendar quarters:

January 1st – March 31st
April 1st – June 30th
July 1st – September 30th
October 1st – December 31st

Butterfly Press will process your royalty payment in accordance with our publishing contracts, 60 days after the end of each quarter. For example, after the 1st quarter (January – March), we will email your royalty statement and send your payment via Paypal by May 30th.
