Note: This example is the second edition of The Tough Guy Survival Kit that lists for $19.97. How much you make per book is dependent on your price point and number of pages (printing costs). Printing costs for KDP and author copies of books may be less than BDI Publishers. In addition, when you order books directly from us to sell yourself, you can add another 20% to your revenues because you are not paying the wholesale markdown. Note: This does not include BDI's $80 per year catalogue/administrative cost fee.
