EXCERPT!
What to Charge for e-books (excerpt from How to Write, Publish and $ell eBbooks) By Angela Adair-Hoy
aadair@writersmarkets.com

Every month, I make more than $4,000 selling my e-books through my website and electronic newsletter. I currently have three e- books available. Not bad for a new medium of delivery!

Why do people really buy e-books? Don't they want a nice pile of paper on their lap to read? Something to lug to the bathroom? Well, not really. The answer is simple. People buy e-books for instant delivery! When you go shopping for a black skirt or shirt, you want to buy it TODAY. When people go shopping for information, they want it RIGHT NOW.

What are people willing to pay for e-books? Readers will pay your listed price, as long as:

-The price is at least reasonable for your readership
-They really want or need what you're selling
-They trust you will deliver a high-quality product
-They trust you will deliver what you've promised and more
-They know they will get immediate gratification (immediate delivery)

Here are some e-books currently on sale and their prices:

Secrets Never Told -- How to Avoid Greedy Lawyers - $8.95
The Inner Structure Of Tai Chi - $8.95
Handbook to A Happier Life - $7.95
George and the Jeannie - $9.95
How to Be A Syndicated Newspaper Columnist (the e-version of my book, includes the newspaper database) - $10.95

I can assure you that the majority of books with higher prices have less pages. They are non-fiction and they are usually how-to. But, they are more sought after...more needed by the market they are targeting.

What should you charge for your eBook?

Determine your price by considering:

1. the need for your book
2. the income of your audience

If you are the first to write a book on your specific topic, you will be able to charge a higher price. Likewise, if your book's audience encompasses a high-income readership (i.e. lawyers), your book price can reflect the ability of your readers to pay for the information.

I try to find hot new topics that haven't been covered by the publishing industry yet. But, my books are priced low enough to be affordable for writers (we are all starving artists, aren't we?).

Changing the Price
You can also experiment with pricing. For my book, How to Be A Syndicated Newspaper Columnist , I sold more books at $14.95 (the print version) than any other advertised price, all higher and lower. I experimented with different pricing structures for months before settling on $14.95. The eBook is priced at $10.95. 90% of the syndication books I sell now are the eBook edition. Needless to say, that surprised me. I began my research into eBook sales...hence, my NEW eBook. (Remember, my syndication book includes a database of newspaper markets, so don't use this price in determining yours. You'll have to experiment with your title, too.)

Last year, when I raised the price of my syndication book to $19.95, sales stopped completely. Change the price periodically over the first few weeks of sales and distribution. It's better to start high and work your way down. Don't do it backward the way I did. Your readers will get angry if they wanted to buy the book last week, but it costs twice as much this week.

Sometimes, a higher price gives the impression of a higher-quality book. Readers assume the book is worth that much, or that the book is the only source of information for that topic. Again, experimentation is the key.

How to Write, Publish and $ell e-books will show you everything you need to know about eBook publishing, including writing, formatting, online sales, merchant accounts (accepting credit cards), e-mail delivery, how to sell your book with a free e-mail newsletter, writing ads that sell, and more.
