How To Price A Self-Published Book
Why is the pricing complicated?
Can I sell companion files as an Extra without selling the book itself? I want to offer an upsell: say $10 for the book, and $10 for the extras.
Why did Leanpub raise the minimum price of a book from $4.99 to $7.99?
I'm in the UK or EU, and I'm concerned that I won't get very much in royalties after PayPal fees and exchange rates on currency conversion. How does this work?
How and when do you pay royalties?
Can I sell my book on Leanpub and other sites at the same time?
Can I receive royalties by some other means than PayPal?
Can a book have multiple authors who split the royalties?
Can I use Leanpub to create print-ready PDFs for third-party print-on-demand sites like Lulu and Amazon?
Can I change the price of my book after publishing it? For example, can I start cheap, release new chapters over time, and increase the price as my book's getting more valuable?
OK, Leanpub doesn't require I get an ISBN for my book, but should I get an ISBN anyway? Do I need more than one ISBN, for example do I need separate ISBNs for EPUB, MOBI and PDF versions of my book?
What happens if a library wants to buy my book?
What if a traditional publisher is interested in publishing my Leanpub book?
Is it possible to take the .mobi file generated by Leanpub from my book manuscript, and then directly upload it to Amazon using KDP?
If I write a book on Leanpub, will I be free to have my finished book printed and sold separately? I'd get my own ISBN as well as copyright.
What does Leanpub think about other online bookstores and other self-publishing platforms?
