After Amazon changed the price that goes back to the author from 35% to 70% as long as the title falls into their requirements I looked at my numbers and decided to give it a try. I was a little scared to take me hot selling book Sweet Dreams from .99 because I thought I would lose the number of sales even though I was not making a lot i was reaching a lot of people.
I was selling about 1200 a month at the .99 rate and so I put the e-book at 2.99 which is the base rate for the new 70%. It has only been out for what... ? 10 days now, well so far I have been surprised. The book is selling better at the new price then it was at .99. How does that happen? I am over 500 sold this month and we are not even half way through, but we will see if this is just a fad or if this new thing will keep up.
Did the same thing with book 2, had it at 2.99 and put it back up to 8.99 and it is still selling just as well... who knew?
