Under-Pricing Ebooks

I’m talking about authors who feel like no one will read their books if they’re priced higher than $0.99 or $1.99. They don’t think they’re “worth” that because they’re self-published.

Muse Monday: Time to Write

I have to say, I’m looking forward to school starting. I had hoped I’d be able to finish my current work in progress this summer, but I don’t think I was able to write for more than two days.
