1) Unless you price your Indie Book Cheap few, if any, will buy it.
2) Cheap Books are seldom read, for they are thought to be inferior, hence their price.
The CATCH-22 CURSE
Price your book cheap enough to be bought, and it will not be read.
So what is the answer?
Heck if I know.
John Locke ruined The 99 cent price for Indie Authors.
Amazon now counts each sale of a 99 cent book as a half a sale in their rankings equations.
$2.99 used to be the "Just Right" Price.
Yet, there are thousands of ebooks coming out each month.
Most readers will not gamble on your book at that price.
There are just too many books by their friends to shell out that kind of money.
FREE cannot be maintained as a price on Kindle.
Besides, even if it could, people take you at the value you place upon yourself.
To most, FREE just means even you consider your work inferior.
PAY PER PAGE READ ...
the new Amazon method makes it even worse when your book is bought but not read.
Previously, authors were paid a flat fee for every reader who downloaded their book:
typically around $1.30 per book.
But after the change was introduced, they were instead paid six tenths of a cent for each page read,
meaning that an author would have to write a 220-page book, and have every page read by every person downloading it
to earn the same amount they had previously gotten.
