A book pricing experiment
I'm trying a new approach to selling my books. At their former price level ($3.99 to $4.99 per book), sales had been slowing, largely due to the impact of the Kindle Unlimited subscription library on book sales (which has been substantial, as I reported during the launch of my latest trilogy earlier this year).
I've accordingly reduced the prices of all my science fiction and fantasy novels to $2.99 per volume. This means less money for me, of course, but I hope it'll encourage more sales, so that I make up in volume what I lose on individual profit. I'm trying to balance my book prices with the current state of the market. I'll let you know how that works. (My Westerns haven't dropped in price yet; that'll take another month or two to arrange. Watch this space!)
Please pass the word, and this link, to any of your friends who might want reading bargains. Every sale helps!
