What exactly do you mean by “net” royalties?

Net RoyaltiesNet royalities are derived from the portion of sales that Barking Rain Press actually receives (net) vs. the retail (gross) sale from our network of distributors.

For example, if the retail price of your book is $10, and Amazon keeps 40% of the gross retail price as their “cut,” then the net sale amount is $6, and your royalties would be based on the $6 net sales. Likewise, if a distributor in the UK sells ten copies of your book and sends us $60 via a wire transfer, and the bank charges a $5 currency conversion charge, then the net sales would be $55, and your royalties would be based on that figure.
