I think I may be one of the few authors that not only love price drops but continue to tell people when the prices have changed. I’ve been asked why with the follow-up question about it cutting into my royalties. Yes, it does cut into my profits earned. Sometimes it can mean the difference between a couple of dollars and getting a couple dimes but what I want is for my work to continue.
My experience so far is that publishers want to see sales numbers. Granted they want profits as well but if I can show that just a few thousand people are interested in my work then I can continue earning contracts. Sure it would be nice to be a full-time author as far as finances are concerned, but my first goal is for my work to continue.
The other reason why I like price drops is that the last few years have been hard for pretty much everyone. If earning 20 cents off a sale means that I can help someone escape reality for a couple of hours then it’s worth it to me.
Currently, the hardcover for Dark Days is cheaper than the paperback but the paperback is also on sale. But fear not. If either of those is too much then you can get the eBook from all platforms for $0.99 cents or close to that if you’re outside of the U.S.
Lastly, thank you for reading this. My blog posts and website have reached over 45 countries since I started and to me this is incredible. I would have never thought I would reach outside of the U.S. Each visit, purchase, and review is much appreciated. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, my work would not continue without you and your support.
