Ebook pricing experiment

Something I forgot to mention in my last post is that I’m experimenting with my ebook pricing! After reading the Smashwords blog post about the optimum range for ebook prices, I’ve decided to drop the price of the Apocalypse Blog Book 1 from $4.99 to $2.99 (on Amazon and Smashwords).

I’ll get less revenue per book, but the increase in sales should more than balance that out, if the stats are anything to go by. I’m keeping an eye on the sales (just a little compulsively), and will post again in a month or so to see how it’s going.

So if you haven’t picked it up yet, grab it now while it’s cheap! And cross your fingers that it takes off some more. Wouldn’t that be cool?

    I got hooked by “book zero” and then buy the first in the series. HAD to get the last two books because I was hooked on the story line and HAD to find out how it ended. So now I’m at nearly $14 and it’s still not done! Don’t get me wrong…I love the story, but even King’s The Stand (at a whopping 1348 pages) is under $10. Yes, I know…he wrote it a long time ago and has been getting royalties on it for decades, but even Kindle’s “Best Sellers” are under $15 and most of them are stand-alone novels. I think you may be pricing/sequeling yourself out of the market. The only way I’ll purchase another in the series is if I know I’m going to find out how it all ends.
