If you see a dropdown menu offering books by someone named David Walker, it’s not authorized, and those are not my books. I’m trying to find out how to get rid of the dropdown. My apologies in the meantime.
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
On Freestyle Fridays, we talk about whatever happens to pop into my head—or any suggestion you may have made for a topic.
My friend Lara Schiffbauer recently posted a blog about pricing of e-books (click here to see her post) which has caused me to give a lot of thought to my own pricing. Hers is not the first such post I’ve read, but Lara is a good friend whose opinions I value enough to pay close attention to them.
When I first put Heaven Sent on the market, I priced it at $9.95. Holding it under $10 seemed like a good idea for a full-length book, and I knew of others who sold their books successfully at that price. Lara and some of her readers who left comments have made me re-examine that decision, and I’ve decided to reduce the price.
As of today, Heaven Sent will sell for $5.99 for both Nook and Kindle. Paperback copies will remain at $13.99, since costs are higher for that format.
After much thought, I’ve decided to leave the Fancy novellas at $2.99. Although not full-length novels, these books are 80 to 100 pages each, and that seems a fair price for them.
If you haven’t bought any of the Fancy series, watch for a special announcement in this space on December 21st for a special deal. Jillian Dodd will be announcing the same event. I can’t tell you anything about it yet, but it will involve special deals from 99 authors. Stay tuned for more information.

Determining book prices is a challenge, alright. The opinions are many and varied. For the first time I reluctantly did a promo this week with BookBub and offered The Bridge Club for $.99 for 3 days. The results have been amazing! You might want to look at their site and give it a go yourself! What fun to see you are in the 99 authors promo. It’s going to be BIG in every way. We are having fun, aren’t we?
Yes, and it sounds like you’re doing VERY well, Pat. Congrats.
