Just read a blurb (it’s not big enough to be called an article) about a guy I have never heard of. You can read it for yourself at http://news.slashdot.org/story/11/03/09/0618234/Crime-Writer-Makes-a-Killing-With-99-Cent-E-Books
It makes a compelling argument. Especially that clause about selling 3000 copies a day (when my highest-single-sales day was 21). Now, there’s no guarantee that, if I were to change the price of my books to 99 cents my numbers would rival this guy’s. Still, I am thinking an experiment is in order.
My hesitation comes from the fact that the other day I bought a new DVD player and then, 2 days later, the same store had the same model for $20 cheaper. I just don’t like the idea of doing that to all of you who have spent $3.95 for my books. Still, my desire is to be read. Money is nice, but what I like even more is the knowledge that people out there are reading about Garison and Heather and Bat and Jody.
So, if you notice the price dropping suddenly soon, please don’t throw (real or electronic) tomatoes at me.
