E-book Give Authors More Returns

The announcement by Amazon that it sold more e-books than paperback books shocked the literary world during the holidays of 2009. Amazon shocked publishers again and caused a cheer to go up from authors when it announced that it would begin offering 70% royalties to authors.

What does this mean for publishers? It offers a new outlook and a fresh beginning. Authors have been fighting for their rights for decades. Bokheim Publishing was founded under the belief that authors and readers deserve more. For Bokheim Publishing, this triumph shows that authors and readers have been heard.

Amazon has been leading the way into a new beginning that will benefit all sides. As other publishers begin to realize the benefits in delivering more to authors and readers, a new age in the digital era will begin. With the introduction of the Apple iPad, this will bring more to authors. Authors will continue to receive higher returns for their efforts and costs will be driven down due to a competitive edge for readers.

For Bokheim Publishing, this allows the opportunity to do more for our consumers and authors. The year 2010 will do much to revolutionize the industry for the future.
