Trusted Royalty Management Tool
We understand collaborating with others (whether a co-author, translator, etc.) can be a challenge, especially when it comes to finances. So forget about the square roots and excel sheets.
Instead, boost productivity in your team with transparent data-sharing. Manage royalties and other finances like never before.
Import reports from your Amazon KDP account (Kindle Unlimited), IngramSpark, Draft2Digital, Kobo Publishing / Subscription / Plus, Google, Apple Books (iTunes), and PublishDrive.
Auto Royalty Calculations
Get co-author royalties calculated for your team. Add other costs and revenue streams to easily track finances.
Add as many users as you want per title. For extra security, only the book owner has full access to sales data and royalty percentages.
Customized Royalty Reports
Generate detailed reports on royalties earned with a simple sales dashboard. Only contributors can see their own share of royalties. Maintain full authority on calculating finances.
Enjoy royalty splitting for your first title for free, forever!
Only $2.99 /title/month after the 1st title
Abacus in Action
Our case study details how PD Abacus saves hours of time for co-authors and indie publishers like Michael. Learn all about the ultimate royalty splitting solution.
Stephen Campbell, VP Operations, LMBPN® Publishing
“PD Abacus will save meaningful amounts of time for LMBPN® Publishing. The royalty calculation, confirmation and distribution process for our hundreds of books and audiobooks to dozens of authors has taken days of staff work each month. That process shrinks to a few hours with PD Abacus.”
Why Indies are Working Together
Success in self-publishing requires a quick response to trends, robust marketing, and frequent releases. Co-authoring makes it possible while avoiding burnout. Whether you’re a bestselling author with a large back list or a debut author, readers want more books.
That’s why many authors are working together. As a co-author, you can co-write a book. Or, you can share the same universe with other writers. Writing anthologies and boxsets is becoming more and more popular.
Share the workload, split expenses, and double marketing efforts
Maintain a rapid release strategy
Boost visibility by leveraging your co-author’s audience
Add more credibility to your brand (especially as a newbie)
Let the creativity flow and combine ideas, skills, and experiences
