Donna, I agree with you. I think $2.99 for a full length novel is reasonable--that's less than a latte at Starbucks!

I have taken a hit on sales as well, but in time I think readers will get used to the 2.99 price point.

I'd agree. I think that $2.99 for a full-length novel from a new (to the reader) author is a reasonable price.

It might be worth considering eventually putting an older novel up at $0.99 or free (alas, not at Amazon yet for independent publishers) to catch new readers, who will buy your other novels if they like the first one.

I think it'll take a couple more months to see how things are working - they say summer is slow so we may not really know how readers are taking to $2.99 until fall.
