I'm not disputing the general claim that a lower price will sell more copies. I'm merely expressing skepticism that she'll sell 5x more based on lowering the price.

The experiment is also going to be a bit distorted, since it's being billed as a "limited time offer" and meant to prove a point. A better experiment would be to take a series of backlist title with relatively consistent sales, vary the prices for random periods of time, and see the effects on sales. This is a start, but hardly a definitive experiment.

At any rate, we won't know the results unless she and/or her publisher share that info with the public.
