How much will I earn in royalties?
Authors with TTE Publishing receive 60% of royalties. When it comes to children's books, some illustrators request a percentage of the royalties. If this is the case for your book production, you will and the illustrator will negotiate how to split the 60%. This is standard and professional practice for royalties.
