That was hardcover and shipping cost. Hardbound is more expensive then soft. So had I picked a softer cover it would’ve been cheaper.
Also check proof costs or whatever they call it. It’s the cost the author pays for a copy of their book which may be less than the sale price. That might vary from POD companies.
Ohh, okay that makes sense. Hardcover is always more expensive!
What’s proof costs? (Sorry is this is a dumb question)
I don’t know if that’s what it’s called (a proof). It’s a copy of the book the author can order to check it out before he puts it up for sale. It’s so he can check it out and prove that it is formatted correctly. Some places provide that to the author at a discounted price.
I’ll be sure to check! thank you
