Frequently Asked Questions

ebook Publishing FAQ
The time it takes to publish an eBook depends on the quality of the manuscript we receive, the choice of features you select, and on the length of time you take to review the proofs. For example, to convert a correctly formatted PDF of your manuscript into an ePub file and deliver it back to you, it will take 48 hours once we receive your completed submission. Enhanced eBooks and eBook apps will take anywhere between 5 to 15 days, depending on your selection of "extras" and the quality and quantity of audio and video files.

Royalties FAQ
Many retailers will regulate the pricing of your book in their store. As a result, the total revenue is divided up by percentages. For example, if you distribute your work on Apple, they will take home 30% of the sales revenue, eBooks2go would receive a 10% cut for managing your distribution, and you would receive 60% of the royalties from your eBook sales in the iBooks store.
Royalty payments are issued for every $50 earned and vary from retailer to retailer. The amount you earn from each sale depends on both the price of your book and the retailer’s royalty rate. However, if your book does not reach the $50 threshold during the course of the year, you will receive a royalty payment the following January for the total revenue earned within the year.
