Hey, I'm not one to do all this talk and no action. I feel like I can't complain about ebooks or fully talk about the ins and outs of all of this without trying it out myself. So, here's what I want to do: I want to take one of my out-of-print books and turn it into an ebook using BN's Pubit.
Here's the question:
1) give it away for free, as in list it for 0.00 dollars? (If I CAN do that)
2) sell it for .99 cents?
3) sell it for 9 dollars?
I'm right now leaning toward giving it away for free. Why give anyone any money for it? I'm already giving it away on my website for free so why not continue the gesture? Then again, perhaps that will ruin the experiment. Will it? Do I need to sell it for 99 cents like everyone else to see what will really happen?
I need your votes so vote now!
NOTE: I got the royalty rate backwards: (Thanks to Maryann for the correction.) You get 65% on books between 2.99 and 9.99. You get 40% on books over. For books at or below $2.98 you get 40 % off the list price. 1) I'm not sure why you get far less on books over. Kind of odd. 2) I'm not sure why most people price their books at 99 cents when they could get 65% instead of 40% when they price their book a few bucks higher.
