Since I wasn’t sure what advice to give her, I turned to the wonderful Writerspace community for advice. You came through like the champs you are!
Both my friend and I are extremely grateful for the time and effort so many of you took to fill us in on your thoughts, desires and experiences. You folks really are the best!
If you’re interested in seeing how your fellow Writerspacians responded to the questions I’ve repeated below, please check out my What’s Your Price? blog, posted on Oct. 22.
If, however, you haven’t weighed in yet and would like to, please take this chance to do so. Who knows what we all may learn and/or what may result from sharing this information.
So to those of you with ereaders who haven’t responded yet, I’d still like to know: what’s your sweet spot?
Is there a particular price you expect to pay for a self-published eBook?
Do you think digital books should be priced according to genre? If so, which would you expect to cost more and which would you assume to be less?
If you stumble across an eBook that’s offered for free, do you typically snatch it up? If so, are you more or less (or equally) likely to read it than a book currently on your ereader for which you paid something?
The three most common prices for self-published eBooks currently seem to be 99 cents, $2.99 and $4.99. Of these three options, which amount do you most often pay?
How important is cost when you decide whether you’re going to buy an eBook?
Is there an amount you won’t go above? If so, what is it?
Any answers you can provide for the above questions will be greatly appreciated! By the same token, additional information that you think important enough to offer would be extremely helpful as well.
