About this Talk

While it’s always nice to sell books, for some authors and publishers, royalties are the bane of their existence. It seems as though every distribution channel has re-invented the wheel, coming up with their own ways of recording and reporting sales data. Even the terminology they use is inconsistent!

This makes it very challenging, for authors and publishers alike, to figure out which marketing tactics are working and which are not.

In this interview, Tara R. Alemany and Andy Jackman, CTO of Title Verso, discuss:

  • Financial terminology every publishing professional should know.

  • How the proceeds from a book sale get splintered along the way.

  • How various sales channels report sales differently and the complexities that creates.

  • Why metadata is important to royalty reporting.

  • How returns affect us all.
