I continue to learn so much about marketing my novels. One important aspect of selling books is their PRICE.
How do you feel about the price your publisher sets for your novels?
Or, if you’re self-published, how do you go about pricing your novels?
Recently I bought an ebook recommended by a Goodreads friend. The author wasn’t known to me, but because her book was only $2.99, I eagerly purchased it. That got me thinking of my own novels.
My publisher has set the price of my ebooks at $6.99. How willing is a reader to shell out this amount on an unknown author? Since I’m not a famous bestselling author, many readers will feel like they’re taking a chance on me, and that’s an expensive chance.
All the more reason I was ecstatic when Omnific Publishing put my novel With Good Behavior on sale for $2.99 this month for the Freedom Sale.
Check here to find some great Omnific titles on sale, like Three Daves by fellow IWSG author Nicki Elson, Seers of Light by Jen DeLucy, Pieces of Us by Hannah Downing, Eve of Samhain by Lisa Sanchez, The Guardian’s Wildchild by Feather Stone, Indivisible by Jessica McQuinn, and more.
I’m also stoked my YA novel Streamline will go on sale in August.
Now I need to get the word out about the sale for With Good Behavior. I’ve been tweeting and posting on Facebook. Any other suggestions you can offer?
Upward and onward, insecure writers!
