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

Can't say that I like that race to the bottom WRT pricing, but then again Kindle offers more people tp publish their work who would otherwise never had a chance. (For good reason, in many cases, I suspect).

"A compelling amalgamation of sci-fi, military, political, and historical thriller." Publishers Weekly BookLife.

In 1942 US Fighting Tigers squadron commander John Chen comes face to face with his enemy, Japanese pilot, Tateo Kato. Ninety years later, in 2033, their great grandchildren are serving on the same side as part of Operation Red Dove, the first joint naval exercises between China and Japan to mark the signing of a new Sino-Japanese mutual defense treaty.

China is determined to forge a new empire in the East with Japan by its side. Its determination is about to be put to the test.

IN SHANGHAI, the cyber warfare personnel of Advanced Persistent Threat Team 23 are about to fire the first shot in a new global war.

ON OKINAWA, Defense Research Projects Agency drone pilot, 'Bunny' O'Hare prepares for the last field trial of the US Navy's next undersea stealth platform.

ON THE CHINESE AIRCRAFT CARRIER THE LIAONING, squadron leader Li Chen questions her orders when she is asked to lead a 'reconnaissance' mission over the last US naval base in Japan; White Beach.

ON THE JAPANESE CARRIER JS IZUMO, fighter pilot Takuya Kato prepares to welcome a most unusual visitor.

AT WHITE BEACH NAVAL BASE Chief Petty Officer James Jensen finds himself staring through his binoculars at advancing Japanese troops that a few years before had been allies.

ON HER WAY to work at the Kouwa Gardens Nursery, 103 year old Noriko Fukada finds herself being used as a human shield, for the second time in her life.

AND IN HER PRIVATE RESIDENCE inside Tokyo's Akasaka Palace, Princess Mitsuko Naishinno prepares to fulfil her dying father's wish, and wrest back control of Japan from a government which has sold her country's soul to China.

OKINAWA by FX Holden is a fast paced, action packed look at a near future where the next arms race will take place in cyberspace, where wars will be fought in secret above and below the seas, and the alliances of today will be upended by new geopolitical realities.

At first glance this one will probably be quite a complex story popcorn

Same as Bering Strait ... it follows seven characters as they each navigate a conflict between China, Japan and the US on Okinawa in 2033...

It’s 500 pages so you have time to settle in and get to know who is who wink
