But is is more than that.
However many are sold, with a retail price of £10, or £ 7.95, the seller has to make a good mark up, the publisher has to be paid, ditto everyone else in the food chain.
The amount available as royalty is vanishingly small. Possibly nothing at all.
There are sites on the net discussing how to have your own book published which raise this very issue.
The chances of their making significant amounts of money are very low indeed.

But surely the money they raised from interviews to promote the book is theirs to keep? and the serialisation of the book in the Sun must have made them a pretty penny. Obviously enough to pay for more court action anyway.

The economics of THE book

Post by pauline on 19.06.11 11:36

The McCanns will have done well out of this.

They obviously got a huge advance - various reports of what it was.

They get royalties when and if the advance is covered by sales. When an author gets a huge advance (only well known ones normally do) they do not lose out if the book flops, though the publisher will not rush to take their next book. Authors do not normally repay the part of the advance that is not covered by sales, and with all the lawyers behind them the McCanns would not have signed an unusual contract involving the possible refund of any part of the advance.

The McCanns may well not be entitled to royalties but it doesn't really matter as they got such a big advance.

Now the publisher, distributors and bookshops may not have found the book profitable. Vast quantities will been printed (though cost per book cheaper for large print run) and the publisher had other costs especially marketing.

Bookshops apparently marked the book well down to get the sales and possibly got little or no profit.

In addition the McCann's were paid for serialisation rights and interviews. Does anyone know what they charge for interviews and whether they normally charged for interviews (ie pre book)?

Now all the money from the book will presumably lodged into their 'not for profit' company?

Their company is an ordinary limited company and they will be liable for tax on any profit/surplus their company makes - but I just suspect that the company won't have any surplus to tax as it is very expensive searching for Madeleine, and paying all those lawyers.

Because the act of reading it adds intellectual content.

In todays Irish Times (known as the paper 'of record) Kate's book is No.1 in the non fiction paperback section having sold 931 copies in the last week.

I think it has been No.1 in this category for some weeks now.

And i haven't seen any price reductions yet - it sells for between €14.99 and €15.99.

Any book slips down the best sellers list after a while and it is quite normal for books to be discounted to move stocks.

What i would like to know if whether the reportedly very big advance is going into the Fund or just the royalties, and of course there mightn't be any royalties as royalties are only paid when the advance is cleared by sales.

And if the advance goes into the Fund - will it be spent on more lawyers?

What is the fund for?

Post by Marian on 20.07.11 13:20

That's a good question Pauline. I didn't know that any advance payment is taken out of the royalties. It's debatable whether the Fund had any worthwhile purpose right from the start but now it's even stranger that the McCanns are still actively touting for donations.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
