PRINT ON DEMAND SERVICES UPDATE
Changes to Amazon provided by Love of Books
Amazon is now in Australia as amazon.com.au. However there is no book printing completed in Australia as yet. All books printed are completed overseas. If you would like further information on how Amazon works please visit amazon.com or amazon.com.au.
Love of Books Authors are saying that the cost to deliver a book to Australia is too high and takes too long.
The actual process of delivering royalties is commenced once sales reach 100 dollars US and then completed by cheque delivery.
This royalty is given when 100.00 dollars US per country is reached where the books were ordered. Many authors don’t see any royalty payment at all if royalty amounts don’t reach this margin.
Wow… Amazon is a very lucrative company.
Love of Books will still offer the AMAZON POD Package if clients request this.

Print-on-demand easy affordable and fully supported.
Print-on-demand publishing is becoming more common, especially in the self-publishing world.
Books are printed individually when there is an order placed, instead of printing in bulk before promotion and sales. A print-on-demand publisher will have digital files of your manuscript and cover, and they will just print the book out when it is ordered and ship it to the customer.
The benefits of Print on Demand are:
No stock is held so there are no bulk up-front printing costs and no holding/storage costs
Your book can be ready for sale immediately anywhere in the world on completion and upload of the manuscript
There is the ability to change the text and publish changes more quickly
It is more environmentally friendly as there are only print and shipping costs for actual sales
It enables more power to self-publishers who want to get their books out there for little start up costs
However, there are lower profits involved per book. Book printing costs are higher with POD than with bulk printing. However, the benefits of not spending the money upfront often outweighs this many people consider.
One last thing.

Print on Demand
Print on demand with the use of digital technology is used for printing items for a fixed cost per copy. The cost of the book printing and delivery is taken off the price you nominate for your book. You are then to receive the remainder of the funds by way of a royalty payment. The unit price of the single copy printed is higher than with offset printing, the average cost is lower for large print runs.
POD has other business benefits:
- Technical set-up is usually quicker than for offset printing.
- Large inventories of a book or print material do not need to be kept in stock, reducing storage, handling costs, and inventory accounting costs.
- There is little or no waste from unsold products.
These advantages reduce the risks associated with publishing books and prints and can lead to increased choice for consumers. However, the reduced risks for the publisher can also mean that quality control is less rigorous than usual.
