Editor's Note: The Importance of Idea Sharing in Times of Change
This doesn't seem to be quite as much of an issue for me with newer releases, as I've done quite a bit of comparison shopping with those as well. (Did I mention that I love a good bargain?) For example, I recently purchased the e-book of a new release, which cost $12.99. I seem to be willing to go a little bit over $9.99 for a new title, if (and I stress "if") it's one that I've been anxiously awaiting its release. And a cheap print alternative isn't generally an option in this case; print copies of this title, even from third parties on Amazon, cost several dollars more than what I paid for the e-book version.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and business strategies on this pricing issue, as well as anything else that may be on your minds.
