What the? Wednesday...Who Prices Those Things Anyway...

Ok, so I've talked about reviews, writing reviews, what should go in one, what shouldn't...and when you've gone beyond reviewing the book to reviewing the author.

I thought today I'd hit my last point and talk about price.

Granted, there are a lot of ebooks that are expensive. I believe Stephen King had a hissy about one of his books being the same price in e-form as in hardback. I can't say I blame him. But the thing to consider here--he didn't set the price--the publisher did. So if you get a book from a distributor and you feel it was too much, try going to the publisher site. Shop around. Trust me, you will find a better price.

We authors want you to review, read, and enjoy our work. That's why we write--we want to make others happy, fill our drive to be creative, and in some cases just to get the characters to hush.

So, shop around, really read the blurb, and consider what you want. It's your money and the authors really do want you to be happy.

Thoughts? Ideas? Things you want to throw? Let me know. I'm open to talking.
