How To Price Self-Published Books

Recommended Posts

From our own C.S. (Susanne) Lakin, who has gone on to create a very nice career writing HOWTO books. (I attended her Plotting Boot Camp a year ago - it was spectacular.)





You’ve written your book and it’s ready to publish. Congratulations!

You now upload your manuscript and cover files and put your keyword phrases.

Just a few more items to complete before you click “Publish” and send your masterpiece out into the world.

But … now you have to set a price for your book.

At the very least, you want the price of your book to seem reasonable for your genre.

It makes sense to do some research and see what similar books are priced at, but there are some pitfalls with making this your only measure.

Let’s take a look at the strategy of smart book pricing.

That's a very interesting article. I set the first book in my four-book series free three days ago, and I'll be running promotions to it over the next few months. I'm keen to see whether it's an effective marketing method to lead readers to my three other books. I'm sure many of the people who pick it up will be freebie hunters, but I hope at least some will go on to buy more of my full-priced books.
