Dean Wesley Smith has a very detailed post that provides small presses and independent authors guidance on how to properly price both your print book and eBook. He is consistently a go-to source for anyone in the indie community, and it's great that he continues offering this advice free of charge.
Some key takeaways from Dean Wesley Smith on pBook/eBook pricing:
- Provide an honest assessment of how many hours it took to create, edit, and design the book and factor in an hourly wage for yourself
- Print editions should be priced at a bit more than twice the eBook edition
- Pricing an eBook at less than $2.99 or giving it away for free is foolish
BB eBooks will be adding a Publishing section to our website soon, so that self-publishing authors and small presses can have resources for marketing and selling their products.
