I recently published my children's novel, Brian, His Granddad & The Cup of Ages which sold quite well with a few copies being downloaded each week at a price of £1.72.
Then, I tried Amazon's free book promotion offer and within a couple of days my book had been downloaded over 600 times! Ok, it was free during this period but I was hoping that word of mouth afterwards would generate more sales.
I then reduced the price of my book to just £0.93p and since then it's been selling lots of copies every day which is brilliant! Plus I've started to get some independent reviews from the time I used Amazon's free promotion?
So, why is it selling so well now? Is it a combination of the above or is it purely down to price? How much would you pay for a Kindle download? Does cheaper downloads mean an inferior story/writing etc?
