A self-published author I met at one of my book signings sent me this link about self-published (aka "indie" books...though iirc, that term also refers to small presses) books that have done amazing well as e-books and how they did it.

EDIT: And it looks like $2.99 is the magic price to use: it's the minimum you can charge & get 70% of sales (for Amazon) AND it's a very reasonable price for people to pay (come on, if you downloaded a book & only sort of liked it, would you be ok with paying $2.99? I would be fine with that). Check out the breakdowns here.

So, just some thoughts for ANY of you on this route. I'm tempted myself :P

Those figures are truly amazing. When you say you are tempted yourself, are you talking about Gilded Shadows, etc.?

Yeah, it's a much more viable fall-back than I thought ;)

I didn't have time to read the whole thing.

Anyhow, let's get this sucker finished. Then you can try it and let me know how it works. Migod, 10,000 books sold! That almost made me spew my coffee.
