Admittedly I am still experimenting to find a good price point for the 1st book in the Astronomicon series.
I cannot deny that most people choose the books they buy more by the name of the author than anything else. Most people have their familiar authors and their favourite authors. Tempting people to buy a book by an author they do not know is very difficult bordering on impossible without other factors coming into play.
To help tackle this problem I have decided to try dropping the price of book 1 on Amazon to the lowest price they allow. Currently that is only $0.99 (or 86p according to Amazon’s version of the exchange rate!)
