New books and more…

May 3, 2009

I just went on the Simon and Schuster website and I couldn’t believe that they marked up the price of Nancy Drew eBooks from around $3 to $9.99! And, the new HB/ND Super Mystery coming out soon is marked as $9.99!

This is absolutely ridiculous! It may be that sales are low so they figure that they might as well get a few more bucks out of the people that buy them, or it may be a glitch. I don’t know. But I think it isn’t a glitch.

If they truly raised the prices, do they really think that that is going to get them more money? It might help to change the plots to something that the fans actually want to read before you go marking it up. If the reader appeal is low from the drastically cheap plots they are jamming out, isn’t it going to narrow the readership even more to raise the prices?

Let me know what you think about this.
