It’s true. I can’t leave well enough alone. Shadow Cat has been out for about a month and a half. I’ve changed the price so many times, I’ve lost count. 🙂 Between all the distribution sites my little novel is listed, I’ve managed about 1 sale a day for the past week, and it’s torture.
Everyday, I wonder, will this be the day I don’t get a sale. haha as if 1 sale a day is that big of a thing. It’s not like I can make a living like that. How I wish I knew how people found Shadow Cat. If I did, I’d focus my marketing strategy. As it is, I’m all over the place.
I thought to myself, if people are purchasing Shadow Cat at $2.99-3.99 on a semi-regular basis, it means the word is getting out. I would love for more people to read my novel and spread the word. I can’t deny it, I’m a bit impatient. You see, I suffer from the “now” syndrome. 🙂
Right now it’s not about profitability. Cause honestly, even if I sold 1 book a day for the next month, it’d only bring me in about $60. Although, 60 bucks would cover the cost of the border I’d like to put around one of my flower beds. 🙂
Anyway, I digress… and ramble, as I’m prone to do. So I said all that to get around to what I talked over with my husband last night. I’m trying out the $0.99 thing on Kindle for the next week.
If you’ve been wanting to pick up Shadow Cat, now’s certainly the time to do it. In my mind, $3.99-4.99 has always been the ultimate price I’ve imagined for Shadow Cat in the eBook form–at least before inflation. It’s certainly worth a meager 5 bucks. 🙂 But depending on the interest, Shadow Cat might stay my $0.99 read indefinitely. We’ll see.
