- We pay royalties by your choice of either Direct Deposit to your bank account or by PayPal.

Book sales are reported monthly, 15 or 45 days after the end of each month, depending on the distributor. For more information, please see this article: Where do I find my sales information and how often do I receive it?
Please note the following:
- If the total royalties earned in any given quarter is less than $100, the sum will be carried over and count towards your royalties accumulated in the following quarter.
- Net Royalties are defined as the total royalty paid by each distribution channel, and are determined by the Suggested Retail Price chosen by you. The price a retailer lists your book at does not effect the royalties.
