We've eliminated the flat fee for our free book newsletter and are now setting prices based on the genre.
Our goal is to set our fees so that, on average, an author is paying less than 3 cents per click. (Not download. We would love to get that data, but Amazon isn't sharing :)
Cozy mysteries and mysteries are so popular that, frankly, we could have doubled the price and still kept it under 3 cents per click. Instead, we're just going to offer a tremendous value.
|Cozy mystery, mystery, thriller, romance, historical romance||35|
|Romantic suspense, Christian fiction and nonfiction, paranormal romance||30|
|Nonfiction, literary fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, science fiction||25|
|Horror, erotic romance, young adult||20|
|LGBT, children, African-American||10|
