Dedalus Press is funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, and commits to upholding the Arts Council’s Paying the Artist policy.
Our publishing contracts for full-length works commit to an author’s advance of €800, with a 10% royalty (based on the retail price) paid on all book sales.
Statements of sales are made up at least once per year.
Dedalus Press also acts as a licensor for works from Dedalus Press publications republished, broadcast, translated, adapted etc, and income from such sales is included in annual statements/payments.
Dedalus Press occasionally commissions new work and pays between €1000 and €3000 depending on the nature and extent of the work undertaken.
Where we use third party artworks for book covers etc, we pay for the use of such work.
Dedalus Press endeavours to represent as best we can the work of those authors whom we are proud to publish, but copyright in the work at all times remains with the authors. Authors receive detailed contracts of their dues, rights and obligations, and we are happy to negotiate on territories and other terms where an individual author has specific requirements or needs.
