    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.
    Anyway I think Amazon favors 3.99 and up; however they would like a lower cap than the traditional publishers use.
