The Birth of Territory – Chinese translation forthcoming

The Birth of Territory12 The Birth of Territory is forthcoming in Chinese translation. While this is good news, it’s hardly the path to riches. The royalty rate is 7%, rising to 8% in the unlikely event of it selling more than 10,000 copies. This is split between me and the publisher, so I’ll get 50% of that rate. Then there is a “10% agency commission”, and of course this is all taxable. So I think the eventual rate is about 1.9%… This is of publisher net receipts, not cost at point of sale. For a book that gives the publisher $20, I’ll see about 38 cents. We don’t write academic books for the money, but even so!
