received a check for $440.20.


It’s commission on the publication of my new book. And it means I passed breakeven.

$131.25 for the cover design
$69.00 to purchase the image we used on the cover
$125.00 for editing
Total: $325.25

Twenty-five years ago when I published my first book, it cost me $6500.00. I’m still not at breakeven.

Cost is no longer a barrier to book publishing. If you’ve got a book inside of you, it’s time to give birth!
