I’ve been experimenting with a novel I wrote. I have it published on Amazon as an ebook (see below). I really am more interested in people reading it than I am in abeing paid.
The conundrum is what price to ask? It’s currently listed at $2.99. If I price it at $.99, I think that the people who are most likely to enjoy it, will dismiss it. I spent several years, off and on, working on it. I’ve been through several drafts and polished it as much as I’m able. When I compare the prose against books that cost $2.99 (my current price) and others that are more, they often seem more like drafts than finished novels….
A few people are actually purchasing it–to my surprise–, I don’t think they are friends and family. The complexities in such a simple endeavor have been quite a bit more then I expected. My expectation was that no one would purchase it, and I’d soon give up in frustration.
So. I may lower the price, temporarily, too see what impact it has. Then, who knows, I might make it $4.99
