Ka-Blam Tip o’ the Day — Cover Price? Think Digitally! Part 3
Have you ever really stopped to consider why you’re putting a cover price prominently on your front cover? If you haven’t then your thinking is still analog, but the world you live in is now digital. Consider this …
If your book is distributed to comic shops or bookstores then most likely you have a UPC or ISBN box either on the front or back cover and there’s ample room there for a price point (ISBNs in most cases actually contain the price in the five digit extender).
If your book is not available in comic shops or bookstores then why include a printed price on the book at all? If you’re only going to be selling it online or at comic conventions then no cover price gives you the freedom to not only set your own price, but to adjust it over time and circumstance if need be.
