I noticed this happening more and more with several authors…and readers have complained, legitimately in my mind. “Books” are posted online for .99 cents and, when the readers download them, they find that they are just short stories. Sometimes, the books are listed as having 200+ pages, but when you open them, the actual length of the book is far less than anticipated.
So, I took the liberty of doing some research and came across the following numbers that I’d like to share with everyone.
I promise to do my part and properly label my Indie publications accordingly. Typically, I price my Novellettes at .99 cents, Novellas at $1.49-$1.99, and my Novels at $2.99. I’ll make certain to add this information to the description so that my readers know what they are purchasing up front and are never taken by surprise.
