It’s that simple.
WHAT IS THE COST OF PAPER ABOUT?
“The Cost of Paper is an annual publication dedicated to short fiction. It is a unique anthology of international narrative prose sold only for the cost of paper in your hand—or, completely free at 1888.center.”
In other words, it’s showing you how very little authors make.
When you consider all of the cuts taken out of a published book and given to the editors, distributors, publishers, etc, combined with the cost of printing, and you see that the book is somewhere between $10 and $15, how much do you think the author will be paid?
Answer: not a whole lot.
So we provide the published books at the price of the paper, which is usually in the $4 range.
I want you to be a part of this movement!
