I’ve finally been able to work on the pricing models for Ashlands: Mind of the Mencist. There were some complications with how I was able to price the digital copy vs. the print copy of a book. Over these many months, a lot of policies have changed with the Print on Demand (PoD) service that I work with to publish print copies. Soon, if not already, the prices are changing.
|| $2.99 (USD Region)
|Print on Demand:
|| $11.99 – $15.99 (USD Region)
Because of different costs and taxation it appears that different world regions are having to pay much more, even for the ebook. This is all news to me. It’s unfortunate that I can’t do much about the cost of PoD. I do like the feel of a book in my hand still but the cost of ink and paper is beyond my control. Hopefully, with everything moving to a digital world, the eBook price is much more agreeable. This change has been a long time coming and I hope that future books can debut at these price points to broaden their appeal to readers.

I am happy to announce that the book is complete and working its way through the distribution process. The book is slowly rolling out to various eBook marketplaces and the Print options will be coming in the following weeks. I must admit that the release of this book has been a little more clumsy than I had original hoped for, but I am hoping that things will sort themselves out soon and people can begin to enjoy the book. I really do hope that you all enjoy the book and please feel free to send me feedback on Twitter.
