comment How Much Can You Make From Writing a Book?
The current e-book royalty rate is actually closer to 70% (using the Amazon royalty charts). For any book selling below 2.99 or above 9.99 they pay 35%. For any book selling between 2.99 and 9.99 they pay 70%. Their intention was to keep e-books priced below 9.99 as much as possible.

The answer for self-published book should be changed to take into account self-published e-books, which is where many authors are making their money (without having to leave home). Most new e-books are selling for at least 2.99, and with the current royalty models, the author keeps $2 of that, which means 5,000 copies would result in $10,000.
