Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Author buy-back rates (As defined by Rachelle Gardner)

Beyond those free copies, how much does it cost for you to buy your own book? This is typically in a sliding scale depending on how many copies you’re buying at one time. Higher discounts apply the more copies you buy at a time. You typically buy in case-lots, and the size and weight of your book will determine how many are in a case. The author discount schedule is an important point of negotiation for clients who will buy large numbers of their books to sell at their speaking engagements.
