How much will I get paid for publishing my nonfiction book?

We pay our authors 50% of net royalties and payments received for subsidiary rights and licensing deals (which is 3–5x more than what a traditional publisher pays). So, for example, If we earn $10,000 in royalties for your book, you get paid 50% of that amount, or $5,000. If we earn $5,000 for a five-year deal to license French language rights for your book, you earn 50% of that amount, or $2,500.
