What you need to know about pricing your book...
Outskirts Press allows you, as the author, to set your own book pricing.
The elements under your control are the Trade Discount, Retail price and Author profit. Your book pricing is also effected by the final length of your book.
Since these elements are interrelated and depended upon one another, you will need to select the element which is most important to you, then base the other numbers on that key element.
Step 1: Choose Your Trade Discount
You can set your trade discount between 30% and 55%
Setting your trade discount below 30% will result in your book having NO distribution.
If you want to see your book on physical bookstore shelves, you'll need to set your Trade Discount at 55% (though this will not guarantee placement).
Step 2: Enter Your Book Information
Your book's size and page count play a LARGE role in it's cost.
The pricing here is just an estimate, your book's final pricing will be approved by you just prior to publication.
If your book is full-color on the inside be sure to select a full-color trim size (they are at the bottom of the list) as full color printing is priced are differently than black & white printing.
Step 3: Customize Your Pricing
