Pricing your E-Book

booksE book sales are on the rise but what is the best price to pay for one. Many writers struggle at what a good price for their book may be. There are many things to take into consideration when pricing your E-Book.

  •  First, Look at the time it took you to write your book. Do you want to simply give away hours and hours of writing for a low price of 99 cents.
  •  Second, Look at what your soft cover sells for. If you are selling a soft cover book for 14.99, then people are more likely going to buy a 99 cent E Book over that price. You might make lots of E Book sales but who is going to buy your book. Most authors like the idea that their book is in people’s hands and others are reading what they have to say.
  •  Third, Adjust price accordingly. You might not want to price your books at 99 cents because you are not going to make anything if you do.  Look at what goes into writing a book. You spend countless hours writing, you pay someone to edit, you pay someone to design your cover art, then you spend money to market your book. You would have to sell quite a few books before you are making any kind of profit.
  • Last of all, people will judge the price of the book and think that it is not a good book by the price of it.  Usually well-known authors don’t price their books that low.  Readers will think that the book has no value or worth if it is priced too low.
