Permanent Price Drop for Twenty Palaces

Folks who follow me on Twitter might have heard this already, but sales for TWENTY PALACES, the self-published prequel to CHILD OF FIRE, have dropped to the point that they are genuinely disappointing, so I’ve dropped the price to $2.99.

That price is already live at Amazon and B&N, but I’m still waiting on places like iBooks to update. I publish there (and to Kobo along with others) through Smashwords, and it can take a while for the prices to propagate.

The old $5 price point made sense when CHILD OF FIRE was still being offered at the promotional price of 99 cents, but that ended a while ago and I haven’t made the time to change it.

I also have short fiction for sale on those sites, but come June I’m planning to wrap them all up (along with a few new stories) in a single collection. You can buy those short stories and novelettes individually for now or get them all at once later. Your choice.

One other thing: the prequel has “lending” enabled and it makes a cheap three dollar gift. If you read and liked the books, would you mind sharing them, in some fashion, with others who might like them?

Thanks.

But would love to read TWENTY PALACES and recommend it to my customers.

Damn. It was supposed to be on Kobo already. Smashwords is getting annoying, and of course it's already the weekend so I won't get a response from them for a couple of days.

I'll post again when the Kobo version is up.

Man, that's $6.04 here in Eastern Europe. Three bucks for the book, three bucks for oh-so-expensive digital delivery, I assume.

Way to suck, Amazon.

Damn. I had no idea it was so expensive over there. It's on Smashwords, too, if that helps.

I already bought it when you first released it, but thanks.

And yeah, they screw the International users with the mark-up. I've set me an american address, though, and the Kindle prices switched to normal ones.

There's no way this will backfire on me!
