I’m now pondering what to charge for Pontiff. The calculus is a little different from what it was for Summit. Summit is available from Amazon for a pittance as a used paperback, so the ebook version has some competition; Pontiff doesn’t have that problem (alas). So that’s an argument for a higher price for it.
Also, Jeff Carver points me to this article, which suggests that ebook pricing is trending upward, with less price resistance from readers than I would have expected. The author’s suggested pricing for a book like Pontiff would be about $7.99, which seems awfully high to me. But one of the benefits of ebooks is that it’s easy to tweak their pricing and see what happens. You can put a book on sale or even give it away with a few keystrokes. So that’s the next decision to make….
