Pragmatic Royalties—2013 Edition

Back in 2009, I posted a summary of the breakdown of the royalties we paid on our titles. Susannah, our managing editor, has been suggesting for a while that I should update it. I was surprised by what I found.


These pie charts show the percentage of titles that earn royalties in a particular range. (Click on a chart to see a large version.)
