our Curved Quill Press anthologies, a flat fee will be based on the total word
count of all submissions by an author that are accepted in the anthology. So,
for example, if you write 5 poems with word counts of 300, 300, 500, 200 and
500 words, the royalty credited to you would be based on a total word count of
1800 words, or £6.00.
addition to the above, we provide a royalty split between Fiction4All and
contributors. This works on the basis of a pot of available
money which is created for each sale achieved and this is then divided amongst
the contributors based on the contributing word count compared to the entire
word count. It applies to sales on our own sites and 3rd party sites
where we distribute our books.
