One of the benefits of self-publishing is that rather than a percentage of sales going to the author and the rest going to the publisher, the author keeps 100% of the profits.
Or, at least, they should be able to keep 100% of the profits.
Book publishing royalties are paid after a book's release and are a percentage of each book sale that goes to the author.
With royalties, the better the book sells, the more money an author earns as the number of book sales increases.
That's absolutely the case when you work with JLEPublishingServices, but unfortunately it's not the case with all self-publishing companies.
