Xlibris US Book Calculator

The Xlibris Book Calculator will give you an overview of your book’s Regular Book Retail Price and your direct royalties based on the number of pages. If you are interested in the SYOP (Set Your Own Price) service, you can also use the calculator to generate book price estimates based on the amount of royalties you want to earn.

Please note the following points:

  • While we can accommodate black-and-white books with as few as 48 pages, there is a design limitation to printing them. Titles with less than 100 pages cannot have text on the spine of the book.
  • Hardcover versions under 108 pages will not be available for sale through online resellers.
  • Full-color books should have a minimum of 24 pages.
  • If your book exceeds 1499 pages (for black and white) and 840 pages (for full color), contact your consultant for a custom quote.

To use the calculator below, first choose what type of book you are publishing. Enter the number of pages your book has (including the title page, copyright page, table of contents, etc.), and select your pricing system. Click the Compute button to get the calculation for prices and royalties.
