Good Q! Ave price for unknown indie author ebook is 2.99 but...

At .99c it has a good chance of staying in the top100 best seller list. eg This was Canada position over the weekend...

When you have no marketing budget, that list is your best marketing tool to build up interest because people browse the best seller lists. If I put it up to $3 it drops off the list (i tried twice) and the higher price/royaly doesnt make up for lost sales.

Most revenue actually comes from Kindle lending library, not direct sales, as those royalties are paid per page read and it’s a 500 page book smile
