About 10 days ago, I lowered the price of my romantic comedy, The Merry-Go-Round, to 99 cents (previously $2.99) and I have seen quite a bit of action regarding sales. The book was picked up by a couple of heavily followed FaceBook pages, Pixel of Ink and eReader News Today, and I believe the promo these two sites offered really helped my sales. I expect even more good things (read: sales) when Elizabeth from The Frugal eReader gives me a quick mention this coming Thurs.
However, I feel I would be remiss in my 'updating duties' if I did not add the shadowy side of this experiment (not to mention that my scientist husband would want me to reveal all the collected data <g>). Since lowering the price of The Merry-Go-Round, my other Kindle book, Mountain Laurel, hasn't garnered a single sale. I am hoping that any new readers I might glean from this experiment will be willing to check out (read: buy) my other books. This, of course, is called a hypothesis and only time will tell if it will come to pass.
Please watch for more updates in the coming days. I would like to thank:
