You can succeed in today's marketplace as an independent author. There's data to back that up. Of course, statistics and sales reports won't mean a thing if your book has not been professionally edited or if you rushed through the design process.
One of the most common questions we hear at BookBaby is some variation of "how much should I charge for my eBook? $9.99? $4.99? $2.99? Less?" Like most good questions, this one doesn't have one simple answer. In fact, we usually have to ask the author a few questions ourselves in order to get some context:
- What is your goal with this book?
- How much do you want to make from each sale?
- What is the size of your existing readership?
Finishing your first draft is a major milestone, and here are your next six steps in your quest to publish a novel.
