As a person who loves to read, I have felt that the prices of the books are a bit high if, like me, you want to buy everything you read. While I would love to see the authors getting money for their work, the breakup of the price shows that they get much less than the publishers and distributors. Paulo Coelho is giving us an opportunity to show the publishing world including authors how selling books at lower price can increase their sales.
Paulo Coelho has announced that 10 of his books are available for $0.99. (Kindle & Nook) Unfortunately this offer is available in USA and Canada.
I am delighted to know that one of my US publishers, Harper Collins, following a conversation with my agent Monica Antunes at the London Book Fair 2012, have decided to reduce the price of all my ebook titles (except the Alchemist) to 0,99 USD.
Which means a book now costs less than a cup of coffee!

If you are in US or Canada buy as many books as possible and tell your friends about this awesome deal from Paulo Coelho. Let us hope other authors take a leaf of Paulo Coelho’s book and cut the price of their ebook version. I cannot justify paying around $10 for each book I want to read and I am sure you can’t either.
