Spelling contractions

For so many years I've noted that in most books there's very little spelling contractions.

It's always - "it is", or "I have", or "we will", or "they are", etc.

I know, or think that I know, that authors don't get paid for the simple words like - and, he, I, it, etc.

Does anyone have a explanation for the lack of spelling contractions in books?

My problem is that while speaking I use contractions. But If I'm writing, I have to think about typing it with contractions.
