How much should you price your masterpiece? Do you make it cheap and affordable or should you price it the same as your idols? Does it even matter? Is there a right or wrong way?

Dean Wesley Smith writes an interesting article about this, and how you can price different formats. I’m not saying this post will solve all of your problems, but it’ll certainly get you on the right track.

The Future Of Ebook Advertising

Advertising surrounds us on a daily basis. We’ve become accustom to it, and most of us accept it so long as it results in a cheaper service. Could this be the future of Ebook reading? Could Ebooks follow the same path as music and movies?

Richard Denoncourt writes an article that asks the reader whether they would accept adverts within a book. Would it be worthwhile if it meant you paid half the price? Many will say no, but i’m sure most would adapt and accept it.

The ‘Bloody Hell, Really’ Article

There’s much news about how to sell books these days. It’s getting rather old. I read this post about how Norway approaches things, and to be honest, I love the model.

I’m sure it won’t work for every country, but it certainly adds food for thought.
