Not every author writes a book to get rich from royalties. But every author has the right to know and typically does care about how his or her book is doing in terms of sales and distribution. This is why we at Kitsap Publishing keep our numbers straight.
We issue a royalty statement every quarter, and we are in charge of printing and shipping the physical books, and we see how many ebooks have been sold at any time. So, we are in the position to create a transparent and accurate report about where your book sold.
Below is a sample report every author receives quarterly. Also, authors can receive a mid-quarter report at any time to see how their books are doing.
