What to Charge for Anthologies or Boxed Sets? by Marianne Stephens
But...how much should authors charge for it?
While $.99 has been a hit with readers, are authors devaluing their works/talent? Difficult decision to make.
Yes, readers love this price. It's great for new/little\known authors to find buyers. But what about authors with followers? Authors who've been on best selling lists?
I'm torn trying to figure this out. I've been in two anthology groups. One pubs 4 times a year. The other, so far, only once a year. This group received 3rd place in the P&E anthology poll rating. Both groups charged $.99.
As an author, what do you think about selling a boxed set/anthology for $.99?
As a reader, is that the limit you set for yourself in buying a boxed set/anthology? Does it matter what authors have stories?
I'm like to hear your comments!
