Frankly, this is not a bad deal. Usually, the minimum run is 2,000 books by
a small publisher. They do more like 4,000 and calculate their cost from
the 2,000 price.

Retail is figured at 5 times the cost per book, 40% markup for the retailer.
So as a published author you get 10% of retail and the publisher gets 50%
after all that cost.

If you can pay $11.50 and sell your book for $55+ you're actually in the
ball park with almost all other book sales.
