What is the author's royalty calculator? Is the author royalty calculator different from a book price calculator or printing cost calculator?
Author royalty calculator gives an approximate figure of royalty, which an author will receive. The printing price determines the price of a book and the price of a book determines the MRP. Then the margin on MRP determines the royalty of the author. So although the author royalty calculator, book price calculator and printing cost calculator are different, they are all interlinked.
