I’ve got to figure out my pricing before very long.
Seems to me that publishers’ prices for e-books are stupidly high. Presumably they don’t want to set them so low that they cannibalize their hardcopy sales (and annoy their retailers). But that’s not a problem I have.
One theory I’ve heard is that buying an e-book is an impulse purchase, and you want to set your price low enough to encourage that sort of irresponsible behavior. What price would make you act irresponsibly?
(Of course, a price of $0.00 is not unheard of. That may increase my readership, but it won’t make me wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice.)
