Kindle Select’s Countdown Deal

So far, I’m pleased. The featured book is moving, plus others have also sold at full price.

Final rating, this is a useful tool to help restart your sales after your friends and family have bought copies of your books.

One thing it brings home: price point is at least as important as anything else an author does to influence sales of his books. Simply put, there are excellent books out there that are free (usually a temporary state of affairs), discounted heavily (including national bestsellers), or cheap. And cheap may not mean ‘bad’; indeed, my favorite indie author (we’re discussing guest blogs to be published here) has a number of books that are uniformly excellent and yet are cheap!
