Dear Sir / Madam,

You need to diplomatically convince your Company that as the author of the books, you should be paid royalty for the publication of those books which though your creations, are patented in the name of the Company. If the books are hot sellers in the market, I see no reason why your Company should hesitate from paying you royalty, as it would motivate you into writing more books and would be a befitting recognition of your contribution to the Company.

Regards,

you are not Author of books, for editing you are paid and compile is part of that. So you can't claim for royalty.
