I publish print editions directly through Amazon for Amazon of most titles, and to date, those have had the best prices. l publish print editions for everywhere else from Ingrams. They’ve been priced slightly higher, but these changes will make the prices the same in most cases as the Amazon-direct prices.
As an example, many of my trade paperbacks were $9.99 US on the Amazon direct version but $14.99 US if distributed by Ingrams. In most cases, they’re now $9.99 US from Ingrams, too. I have uploaded some print titles directly to Nook as well – Dragonfire, Flatiron Five, the Champions of St. Euphemia and the True Love Brides – which have similar pricing to the Amazon editions. All the other series come to B&N from Ingrams, and they will all do so in future.
Similarly, the hardcover editions which come from Ingrams – Dragonfire and new ones for Flatiron Five – have dropped in price from $32.99 US or so to $24.99 US or so. The prices vary slightly from book to book – because the length of the book determines the production cost – but you’ll see an improvement.
The new prices were effective yesterday, so they should be live at your portal of choice now.
