Printing Cost And Book Pricing
The revenue an author earns is dependent on his profit margin which in turn is dependent on the cost of printing and the book’s MRP. In order to earn a substantial revenue, self published authors end up pricing their books exorbitantly because the print cost of small print runs is high. Ideally, the printing cost of the book should be 25% of the MRP of the book. But the MRP of the book must also match the market i.e. it should in the same price range as other popular books in the same genre.
