First the bad news. We signed up book 3 for ‘expanded distribution’. This means that it can be bought in print through other retailers besides Amazon (Barnes & Noble, etc). The problem was, I had tried to keep the price on book 3 as low as I could and I had set it so low that they wouldn’t accept it for expanded distribution (everybody in the chain wants to get paid). Unfortunately, this means I had to raise the price to $26.95. It was almost not worth it since I would only make 31 cents per copy sold through expanded channels even at that price, but I wanted to make my books available as widely as possible. At this point, I’m more interested in the exposure than the profits.
Now for the good news. The good news is, that since I have a little more leeway with my e-store pricing, I have changed the coupon code available for that to 25% off. This will help bring the final price down a little more if you purchase through the e-store here. The other GOOD news is that there are no PRINTING costs associated with e-books, so I don’t have to raise those prices! If you are an ebook reader, the price increase on book 3 won’t apply to you.
Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement. I do hope you are enjoying the world of the Nephilim.
