The Great Experiment

After some early morning pondering, I've decided to lower the price of BY THE PALE MOONLIGHT to 99 cents. Yep, you read that right.

It's my hope that this will help get my book into the hands of more readers. It may have no affect whatsoever, but we shall see. At this particular point in time, I'm planning on leaving it at this price for 30 days--test the waters, see how it goes.

Some of you may be wondering why I've decided to do this. Well, I always told myself prior to publishing that price point is something I would experiment with--and I haven't. Sales are steady, but slow...and really, doing this now isn't going to have any sort of financial impact. Can't worry about the few dollars that are trickling in when they're...well, trickling. (g) And really, that wasn't why I did this in the first place. What I'm on the hunt for is readers.

So far, BTPM hasn't sold in record breaking numbers, but those who are reading it, are really loving it. It's been a huge success on that level, which was my ultimate goal. i.e. To put out a quality book that people love...that they'll want more of... and basically, to create a readership for the series, etc. It is gaining slow momentum, and perhaps this pricing change will be the boost that it needs. I definitely want to go into book 2 with the added benefit of there being actual readers who are anticipating its release.

So...yeah, that's my reasoning in a nutshell. It may flop, I may go right back to my "high price" of 2.99... We shall see.

Go forth and spread the word. :)

Oh and P.S. I just made the changes this morning, so the new price may not be listed for another day or two.

I have a four day weekend without a single "have-to" on my agenda. You know what that means, right?

Four uninterrupted days of face time with WALKING IN SHADOW.

Book two, y'all. It's on its way!!
