In case you weren't aware, Amazon has changed its royalty method for ebooks. Previously, the minimum book price was 99 cents. I set my ebook prices at that point to encourage folks to at least get the sample (a handy feature if you're not sure you want to waste a buck).
Author/publishers can still set a 99 cent price point, but the royalty rate continues to be the miserly 35%.
If the author/publisher sets the price between $2.99 and $9.99, the royalty goes up to 70%. Hoorah, you might say, for the authors. However, what Amazon is doing is legal price fixing. What sane author wouldn't prefer the 70% royalty. Most authors are raising their price to that minimum $2.99. Me included.
Today is the last day to buy my ebooks for 99 cents each. Get 'em while they're cheap!

I will reset the prices on 8/1 to $2.99. The 99 cents price will continue for a day or two after while Amazon updates its database.
