And the price of Please is…

$3.99.

If you’ve been following this blog, you know I’ve been experimenting with the price of the Please ebook to find the ideal price to attract new readers, raising and lowering it like a seismograph. OK, a seismograph that moves between $2.99 and $4.99.

A lot of indie writers think $2.99 is the perfect price for ebooks, with the occasional dip into 99 cents to generate publicity and drive sales. This isn’t the case for Please. Sales were slow but steady when I initially set the price at $3.99. When I dropped the price to $2.99, sales dropped as well. “Oh ho!” I thought. “My readers don’t trust lower prices and want to pay top dollar for quality writing. I am the scotch of literature!” So I raised the price to $4.99. And sales dropped again. Maybe my readers are just hung over.

So, for whatever reason, the ideal price for Please seems to be $3.99. And that’s where I’ll leave it. I’m done experimenting with price for that book. Now I’m just going to wait for riches and fame.
