Book prices

How are books priced? Both hardback, softback and ebooks?

There are a couple of active threads in this forum that deal with this topic, we don't need another.

I've heard a whole variety of answers to that question ranging from "No more than 2/3rds of the paperback shelf price" to "no higher than $1.99, period." So, uh, yeah. It depends a lot on the market, and the people who are most likely to buy from you. If it's a market full of effluent people or people expecting high book prices, then you can get away with higher prices. But if the average reader is a tightwad, you'll be lucky to get $2 out of them. So really look at your market closely and it'll tell you loads about what they're willing to pay. Then set your prices accordingly. Mine range between $2.99 and $8 a copy, depending on the site and the market where they're offered.
