Self Publishing Discussion / What are your thoughts on pricing ebooks?
« Last post by NedMarcus on Today at 02:10:56 AM »
I'm interested in your opinions and experiences with pricing ebooks.

Do you think permafree works? Would 99c/p work instead of permafree as an introduction to your series? And what about regular prices? How much do you think we should charge for novels?

If you love reading (but don't write) fantasy, I'd love to hear your thoughts, too.

At the moment, I have a permafree novelette, the same novelette + a short story free for signing-up to my mailing list, and my first novel is priced at $4:99 (although I sometimes put it on sale). My second novel, which should be out in a couple of weeks will also be priced at $4:99.

What are your thoughts on pricing?

FMA Brotherhood... (like everyone else) bc it's the best anime EVER
IDK if it counts but The Last Airbender, Heavy Metal and Batman the Animated Series (of the 90s) were also very beloved even tho not technically anime
Akira... That gamelan music still pops into my head
Princess Mononoke... One of the best movies of all time period
Ninja Scroll... IDK it's gory and I was young
I haven't seen the anime but I read the manga Gantz and damn those were the most intense fight scenes I've ever seen
Aaaand I know there's more I'm not remembering...

I always liked the dwarves and Bilbo as a group of adventurers, and if we’re going old school there’s Robin Hood’s Merry Men and Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table.

Now I consider it, Tolkien's groups were a bit dysfunctional, weren't they?

Adding to the older stuff: don't forget Charlemagne's paladins.

It's SF, not fantasy, but I'm really enjoying the crew of the Rocinante (Comey's Expanse series).

Is there anything better than cuddles from your nieces? :D

It just gives me a bunch of feel-good emotions...

I will surprise no one that my anime favorites tend toward the episodic, SFF, or absurd.

I'd list:

Starblazers / Space Battleship Yamato (Yamato is superior, but I didn't find it until I was *much* older)

Robotech / Macross (I like Macross slightly better in some part, and Robotech in others ... it's a wash)

Cowboy Bebop (forever a classic)

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (the series, the movie was actually meh for me)

Psycho-Pass (my favorite cyberpunk of all time, honestly, esp the first season)

Kill la Kill (mainly because it's so ridiculous and how it makes fun of the skimpy clothing trope)

Ninja Slayer (it's a stupid, funny show, with barebones animation that makes it even funnier)

Castlevania (Netflix's adaption is ridiculously dark and funny, and surprisingly good. I sympathized with Dracula!)

Black Lagoon (imagine a John Wick style world with pirates instead of assassins)

Gurren Lagaan (again, quite silly, but also starts to make you really love the characters before you expect it)

Ergo Proxy (confusing as f*** the first time through, but the soundtrack is phenomenal and each episode is hauntingly beautiful in some really weird ways)

Writers' Corner / Re: How much did you write today?

Only wrote a few hundred today, but that was all I needed. For the first time ever, I have finished writing a first draft novel. Think I might take a break before diving into something new though.

It is not unusual for people who have had brain swelling to have their cranium cut away to prevent death. These days they tend to repair it after things get back to normal but there are still people of who have the tops of their skulls missing. Maybe you have seen this at some point and sub consciously it has come back to you.
