I’ve made some changes to the distribution details of my print editions from Ingrams, which means that you’ll see better prices at your portal of choice than has been the case to date.
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.
