Do book publishers still make money

Do book publishers still make money?


Yes…that is why so many of the big traditional ones remain in business and newer ones like Oceanview are doing well by specializing in mysteries.

Vanity presses also are making lots of money but at the expense of authors who are in too much of a hurry to be published when another year or two could result in a better product.


In my country, some big and dominant publisher such as Gramedia will do lengthy screening of proposed scripts from the author.

This filtering resulted that there are only valuable script (read:cashable/monetized) will be published by them.

So yes, they are still making big money.
