When a publisher pays you a lower royalty (even though they might offer a higher royalty rate) that is derived from a lower figure than the actual number of books sold—and sometimes the earnings could ironically be higher than what you would get from an ethical, bigger publisher.
Although they’re notorious for their unethical practices, which involve faux royalty or doctored royalty statements and unpaid translation rights, the Sims and Pins have yet to be fined or jailed, although a few government bodies had warned them of their publishing wrongs.
