Will people buy more Kindle books if they cost 99 cents? An experiment

This summer, Amazon is changing around the way it pays royalties to folks who self-pub on the Kindle, or who, like me, bring back their old out-of-print books to the Kindle. Royalty rates will rise to 70%, but you can’t price your book at less than $2.99 to get that.

To get ready, last month I upped the prices on all the KIndle books I control to $2.99. Sales slowed down, even though I also had a new book out with Lis Wiehl.

That got me curious. So I’m running a little test. For the month of May, I’m dropping my prices to 99 cents each.

I’ll report back.

Here's a link to all my books on the Kindle.
