Keep Calm and Run Your Report – New Royalty and Sales Reporting from Booktango

Keep Calm and Run Your Report

It’s human nature. We all have self talk with ourselves on a daily basis: How am I doing? What could I do better? How do I measure up?

We live in a competitive world with constant pressure to do our best. But in order to have a real understanding of where you stand, you need to have the right measuring stick. Measuring the success of your published e-books is no different.

It’s Payday for Authors

Rolling in the Green

Today at Booktango we announced our Rolling in the Green Royalty Program, an e-book publishing first allowing authors to publish for free and keep the entire sales price on all e-books published prior to July 4, 2012.  If an e-book is sold for $4.99 through the Booktango bookstore, the author gets the full $4.99. So what about books sold through other outlets?  Well, e-book retailers will still take their standard fee, and you’ll get the rest. Booktango takes nothing.
