I know I'm not the only one who think about e-book pricing. I'm sure many readers who have an ereader think about this and what their max is they will pay for the digital version of a book.
I am at this point, an e-book only author. My titles can only be bought digitally, minus one anthology that I am in. But it isn't just my print book, so I still consider myself an e-author.
Truthfully, I prefer my kindle. I can't remember the last time I read a paperback or hardback. I always use my kindle. And I have found I have started to only read e-authors like myself. There is an amazing talented bunch of authors out there who aren't on the New York Times list. However, there are a select few I am still fans of. And if I were to buy their latest, depending on the price, I'd buy digital.
Price...that's what I was getting too. What is your max for price of a digital version of a book? I have to be honest, mine is about 4.99 and it has to be a full-length at that price. If its a novella, it will stay on my to-be read list. Especially if its under 25,000 words. A 30,000 word novella, I might buy at 4.99. It will however have to be an author I know and love.
So, it makes me stop and think that as an author, if I have a price limit on books with their length, other authors and readers must also. If you see a 10,000 word story priced at 3.99, will you buy it? Or do you feel it should be around 1.99. Is there even a guide to pricing ebooks? I will say, at Beachwalk Press, I think they have it down. :) They even have a little chart under customer service to help you when shopping.
I'd love your thoughts, your max amount, and how you feel about pricing.
