At the end of this experiment, I'll share whatever info my publisher allows me to. I don't have specific stats now, but I'm hoping to. Thanks so much for all these comments/discussions.
One obvious point to make to your publisher, while they may not want such low prices on all books, setting a lower price on a book that is the start of a series would seem like an ideal way to fuel sales in the long run for the rest of that series as most people are not going to tend to pay over the odds for an author they don't know.
