Saturday, I have an interview and giveaway with Kimberly Afe, author of The Headhunters Race. My interview is at Meeting With My Muse and includes the giveaway of two books and an Amazon gift card.
Brian Jud had an interesting article this week - Keep Prices High and Sell More Books (Profitably) - at Book Business Magazine
He said instead of lowering prices, re-position your books - basically, find a new market. He gave an example of what Hyundai did a few years ago by offering a guarantee with their cars - you lose your job within the first year of purchase and you can return it with no ding to your credit record. While car sales fell 37% overall, Hyundai’s sales doubled during that time. It’s food for thought - instead of slashing your book’s price hoping to move more, find new readers.
And now I will return to the Friday Funnies, starting with my own dorky cat!
