eBook Pricing ... a Peculiar Art

My writer friend in the UK, Suw Charmin (think Sue like Suzy) has written a great blog post about how ebook authors price their books.  Here's a sliver.   Check it out on her excellent site, Chocolate and Vodka and go BUY HER EXCELLENT BOOK!

" ... As writers, we would all like to think that our work has inherent value. The blood, sweat and tears that we leaked all over the page should, we tell ourselves, be valued by others as much as it is by us. 
But the price that the public is willing to pay has little to do with any sense of inherent value; it is directed by what price the market will support. When it come to deciding what price we put on our ebooks, it is not sufficient to think about our concept of inherent value."
