  1. That's GREAT, but . . . I wonder if the price will turn some off to purchasing it in print? $19.95 plus shipping seems like a hefty price to pay since you can go to the bookstore and buy most paperbacks for $9.99-$14.99.

    Not saying yours isn't worth it, of course. ;-)

  2. We did a lot of research into pricing based on set up and production costs and the price point we felt was the best for the book. It's an interesting question to ponder.

    Down Under the average price point for a trade paperback is $29.95AUD, so to get a book like this shipped from the States for around $30AUD is a pretty fair price point.

  3. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!! Everyone, Dean's interview will post Saturday. Don't miss it!

  4. Pricing is indeed very tricky. Americans are quite spoiled with low prices. New release Canadian trade paperbacks are between 15 to 25! And books in Australia are even more expensive. So I figured this was pretty fair to most countries. Plus, in the US, if you add another $5 on Amazon for another book, you get free shipping. Plus, this gives room for bookstores to put it on sale and they can still make money on it. We'll see, like I've said before, poor Dean is our guinea pig!

  5. Hi - I just popped over from Anne's blog. Congrats on the book :)

  6. Thank you Jemi - Hope you can stick around and read some of my back stuff. Itks a journey alright.
