"Let’s see if I have this straight, shall we? You are not going to pay me an advance for my book, so you are not going to guarantee me a minimum payment. In addition, you won’t be investing in a print run or physical distribution for my book, thereby significantly cutting your production costs. But, because you are (Insert Big 6 Publisher Name Here), I should be happy to accept the exact same royalty rate for my books as authors who are getting both of the benefits? Hmmmm, forgive me if I’m not impressed."

Yet another reason why I am my own publishing company. Screw big mainstream publishers......
Yeah, you might as well self-publish at that point.
What are your thoughts Dan? I have to agree with the quote.
I'm going the self-publishing route with my third book. I missed the advance, but the digital/POD route means I can set lower prices for readers and still bag more in royalties.
Sounds like a great deal. Can I get in on some of your profits for doing nothing?
