The 99 cent question
God and beta readers willing, I’ll be releasing the first part of The Clar1ty Wars – One Bad Apple – as an ebook in August, and I was thinking about pricing.
I know .99 cents is the rage, (thank you, Amanda Hocking) and I’m sure there’s gold in them thar cheap hills, but in everyone jumping on that band-wagon to instant success, is the end result merely a glut of mediocre fare? Like the literary equivalent of a Fast-Food Value Menu?
OBA currently weighs in at nine chapters with a touch over 21k words. I think they’re good words, but it is short. Do you think it will get lost in the ‘under-a-dollar’ heap? Or should I raise the price to a whopping $1.99 to set it apart and wring out an extra .17 cents?
