Paul, the Baja Bound pre order link for the Benchmark Atlas is posted just above my post this morning, by mr.bills.
BajaMama, the price is just $20 + shipping (~$5), last I checked?

I look forward to helping anybody find their own Baja adventure!

As a book publisher/ author... I can tell you that it is close to 50% of the list price. Books have very low profit margins to the publisher. The retailer makes the most.

Here is an example:

If the book retail list price is $27. The wholesale is 50%:

The retailer (Amazon or a book dealer) pays $13.50 per book and makes $13.50, if they sell at the list price. They can sell it at any price they wish.

The publisher pays the printer $9 and makes $4.50 if sold to a retailer, or makes $18 if the publisher sells it direct to he consumer at the list price.

Now, if the author of a book is not self-published, that person only gets a part of the $4.50 to $18, split with the publisher... $2.25 to $9 per book.
Since more books are sold through retailers and Amazon than by the publisher, the author usually only makes the low end of the split for writing the book.

There is no preorder for the Baja Bound DK road book, yet.
Baja Bound is only taking pre orders for the Benchmark Atlas, which they are selling for only $20.

Good to hear!
It was a labor of love...
But, I only added or corrected to an already detailed map.
It was just great that Benchmark took on the project to fill the big void left after the 2009 Baja California Almanac.

Got mine today! :biggrin: I am already finding roads that I need to check out on my next trip.

Now if AAA would only issue a 2021 update of their Baja map....

The Auto Club of Southern California fired their cartography and travel guide staff. 2010 map was the final edition. The 2004 Baja guide was the final one, as well.
