When being an author, what's the salary

Do you get paid when you publish a book?
Is it the author choice for the price of the book?
Do you get paid a lot when being author?

    I'm 13 and I'm planning on publishing 3-5 books that I'm not done yet. Plus I'm planning on publishing more of my books during highschool, college, and when I'm an adult. Plus while I;m publishing after college I want to become a Art/Writing Therapist.

    The first problem is finding a publisher who will publish your book. Many people write stories and novels; very few of them actually sell them to a publisher.

    If you publish your book yourself, you have to pay for all of the costs, plus then market the book, and find stores that will sell it.

    The typical advance to the author of a first novel accepted for publication is about $5,000.

    for lulu . com

    can you publish your book besides self-publishing it?

  • Author -

    Have these publishers agreed to publish your books?

    Be careful, legitimate publishers do not charge the author anything. Publishers like lulu will publish your books if you pay them.

    The author often gets a few complimentary copies. However, it would not be ethical to sell them yourself. You can autograph books that you give away or that the publisher sells.

    No, in general, however you can have this written into the contract with the publisher. It is not standard, nor common.
