Shelley, I am a fellow SBI'er and trying to be a published author on CreateSpace. I have been following your advice on several steps of the way. Thank you for the great information.
Now, I'm at the crossroads of setting a price for my book. I would like to provide a hard copy of the book on Amazon and a digital copy in the form of an ebook on my site. So people can purchase one or the other or both.
On Amazon, actual books go for $9-$14 each. That isn't all profit for the authors. Many ebooks overall go for $20 plus. And most of that is profit. Many times if an ebook is priced too low people think that it is low quality.
Is there a way to offer the hard copy on my site with the option to "upgrade" with the ebook version? Just an idea... Charge $15 for the hard copy with a $5 option to get the ebook version immediately. Or charge $12 for just the ebook version. I am currently using e-junkie. Is this idea even possible?
Or should I just send people to Amazon.com for a $15 hard copy and separately sell the ebook on my site. Perhaps I should just sell it as an ebook and not worry about a hard copy. But I would be just tickled pink to see something that I actually did write in print.
Anyways, I would greatly appreciate your input on this.
