Plus you get much more money with Zimbo Books for each sale. Many authors get a
royalty of 10% paid by the publishers. In many cases it is 10% of the wholesale price not the retail price.
For example, if the book has a retail price of $30, it could have a
wholesale price of $15 and the 10% royalty is $1.50 – compare this to Zimbo selling at a RRP of $10.00, the author gets $7.00 which is a much better return.
