    So I've read many articles/threads on the subject of eBook pricing and have come across many different opinions. Some self-published authors say it's a bad idea to price any eBook under 2.99 if you want to be taken seriously, while some readers say they won't take a chance on an unknown author with a list price of 3.99 or up.

    I was going to go with a 2.99 price but decided on 3.99 just to see how well it went. I have sold mostly paperbacks, so I can't say just yet if my 3.99 price is working for me or not. I was planning on giving it another month or two of sales, and I will go down to 2.99 just to see if there is an increase of sales.

    I also didn't see any detail regarding genre or page count when these people were discussing what a good or bad list price is. My book being a Young Adult novella, I didn't want to go too high with my target audience being mostly teenagers.

    They can't find me.
    Mine are at 3.99 regularly but the sell better when they are free.
    Sell?
    Anyway I think Amazon favors 3.99 and up; however they would like a lower cap than the traditional publishers use.
