Dave M just forwarded me an article about publishing on Amazon Kindle which inspired me to drop all my book prices there.
I’ve been making more from ebooks than regular books for a few months now and it makes sense. After all, I don’t have to pay for the printing, I don’t have to deal with shipping, I get a higher % of the retail revenue, and people obviously like their Kindles. Another book “expert” talks a lot about charging the same amount for e or paper so as to not devalue your work, but that sounds like old-school thinking to me.
So I changed. My vampire book now goes for $2.99, and my Christmas books (which, in all honesty, are barely Christmasy enough to call them Christmas books) go for $4.11 for the first one and $6.45 for the sequel. Maybe I’ll drop those later. We’ll see how it goes.
If you don’t have a Kindle – click one of these – choose from the $139 wifi version for uploading books on your home network, or the $189 wifi + free 3G version which gives you free internet anywhere it gets service. Pretty cool!
