And as far as cost, I know that some of the books in Next are quite long, and more expensive — but about what those books would be if broken up into an e-book trilogy.
My books on Next are in line with e-book prices for the romance genre (under $4.99).
I should also explain why I’m so interested in participating on platforms that ask people to pay money for content. I’ve been a newspaper writer for a long time. I’ve seen what fully free content does to an industry: it kills it. Acclimating younger readers to the concept that quality books and writers deserve money is an important move, otherwise we will have generations that don’t believe words are worth paying for.
Do some research into the newspaper industry in the United States over the past 25 years. See how it’s been devalued by the concept of free.
