How many books you have to sell to be rich?
1L is a good number. If the royalty you receive on your book is 60% & it is priced at 150 then royalty per book is 90 INR.
By selling 1L copies:
Royalty = 90 × 1L = 90 L
## Is it Easy?
Most writers struggle even to sell in hundreds. You cannot sell 1L copies via your contacts i.e. Direct Selling. It requires:
■ Massive Marketing: you might have written a nice book but until & unless it gets into hands of readers, it will not register sharp sales.
■ Content must be extraordinary: No one will buy your book & appreciate it if it doesn’t leaves them with an extraordinary experience. Content of the book needs to be really of great standard & quality.
■ Huge investments: you need to invest huge money (for marketing & advertising) & time (for penning down high quality content) to hit 1L sales.
P.S. to earn 90 L as an employee is really hard. It takes decades! If your books sells in good no.s then you can be hopeful of earning 90L via royalties in just few years.
