Interesting, I did not know this, and it actually sounds counter-intuitive. Wouldn't it make more sense to have a low intro price and raise it after the book makes the list? That's how many self-publishing authors operate: give the book away for free, generate great revies, then raise the price. Hmmm. I will never get publishers.
