Yes, you read that correctly. I'm releasing a novella (52000 words) on Kindle detailing Minalan and Alya's unique honeymoon, but I'm overcharging for it. Why, you ask? Not because of petty greed - I want to use it to allure more readers, at first, and to do that I have to put it at the 70% pricepoint of $2.99 for awhile to enroll it in all the nifty sales promotions. Therefore anyone who isn't a hardcore Spellmonger fanatic should wait a bit until the price comes down.
As novellas go, it ain't bad. Is it worth the price? I doubt it (my SOP for pricing tends to be based on word count and time invested, and the fact I like to keep my stuff affordable - I figure 20k words is worth a buck, if it's quality. By that token alone The Spellmonger's Honeymoon is overpriced by a buck). But as soon as the promotions are done I'll reduce it to a reasonable price, and then also anthologize it at the usual low price with plenty of new stuff. So unless you ABSOLUTELY CAN'T STAND IT (and Ishi bless you, if you're in that camp) you should wait a couple of weeks.
