Pricing Model


Publishing a book is $200. Layout is $1.50 a page for book interior. Cover design and file creation is $100 – $300 depending on the cover artist chosen. You only pay for what you need. Pricing your book is determined by the author in consultation with the director of the ILN (International Localization Network Inc.).

Author compensation is determined by the retail price of the book minus the manufacturing cost, which is $2.50 for binding, publishing and cover plus 1.7 cents per page. For example, if the retail price of a book is $20 and it has 200 pages, the manufacturing cost would be $5.90 ($2.50 + $0.017 x 200), and the author compensation would be $6.60 ($20 – $5.90 – ($20 x 0.4)).

Ingram is the distributor and we provide 40% of the retail price for distribution, which includes distributor and retail. If the author sells the book off his/her own supply, which can be purchased at the manufacturing cost, then of course there is no distribution cost.

Here are some examples:

  • A 100-page book with no cover design would cost $350 to publish ($200 for publishing + $150 for layout).
  • A 300-page book with a cover designed by a cover artist that charges $200 would cost $1,250 to publish ($200 for publishing + $450 for layout + $600 for cover design).
