Facelifts: Coming this Summer
There will also be some price changes in the works. Pricing is always difficult to judge. The way that royalties work at least at Amazon, I get 30% of a 99 cent (or 30 cents) book, but 70% of 2.99 book (or 2.03. In other words, I have to sell 7 times as many books at 99 cents to make as much as selling one at 2.99. If lowering the price to 99 cents would guarantee a 700% increase in sales, I would lower them all.
Finally, I'm going to make sure that all my books are available in paperback. I'm getting Astrid Maxxim out because I think some kids might actually buy them. In all other cases, it's just for additional exposure, though I have been selling a few paperbacks of His Robot Girlfriend lately.
