    Who gets 18% from the big publishers?

      I guess Hugh Howey (the author who inspired this strip) would! I read about him on publishersweekly.com

        Best I hear about is 10%, rising to 15 after a certain number of sales. But yes, it is a major reason many authors are subcontracting their cover art / editing / typesetting at fixed rates, so they have a higher rate of return if they sell. Reality of course is that most don’t.
