Thank you. Yes, I had the book at $1.99 for the first three months of its life, then I raised it to $2.99 for three more months, and then I lowered it to 99 cents. It sold more and earned more money for me at 99 cents so I've kept it as a loss leader for me.Shelagh said:Hi Vicki,
I checked out Not What She Seems on Amazon UK. It is one of twelve books in the top twenty list (Bestsellers in Romantic Suspense) selling at under £1. Congratulations on doing so well! Have you offered the book at a higher price?
Hi Douglas,Douglas E Wright said:I've been told that my fiction has a literary bent to it. I enjoy literary much more than genre. And yes, it it much harder to sell. I think it's because it is not as commercial.
Hi RJ,RJ Keller said:I do. And yes it is. (Sorry if that's not encouraging.)
It can be done (with a LOT of marketing). My book has done well for lit fic, and was picked up by AmazonEncore (rereleased by them a couple of weeks ago). But it's a long climb.Shelagh said:Hi RJ,
I do, too. I find that my work is very much enjoyed if it is free, and I receive wonderful feedback, but that's as far as it goes.

Me too! I see that your books are all priced the same. Have you changed the price at any time?Steve Silkin said:i grew up reading literary fiction; i've never really read much genre. so it was never really a question. i'm not sure i'd know how to write genre.
Hi Shelagh,Shelagh said:Hi Douglas,
I've visited Victoria three times (1985, 1987, 1989) and loved it -- my husband taught summer school at the university. I noticed that your books are priced either $0.99 or $2.99. Why not $1.99?
