The two things in the title have absolutely nothing to do with each other. LOL. First, I want to let all of you know about the Easter Egg Hunt where Zoe Winters is giving away big prizes. I won’t elaborate…go to her site and check it out! Zoe Winters’ Easter Egg Hunt

Okay, the pricing dilemma. The gnome book I wrote was supposed to be a full length novel. It didn’t turn out that way. It’s ALMOST a novel. From what I’ve been reading on different sites, you can claim a book as a novel if it’s at least 40,000 words. This book comes in at about 39,000. Yep, almost. And, really, I’m more comfortable calling something a novel if it’s closer to 50,000. My other novels are over that word count and one of them is over 60,000. So that gives me a dilemma on pricing. I was going to price this at $2.99. But should I cut a dollar off the price because of a lack of 1,000 words? And a lot of people are charging up to $5.00 for novels. I was going to charge $2.99 for novels and $1.99 for novellas, although I’m going to keep my backlist at .99. So, what to do? Should I go ahead and price this book at $2.99? I really don’t think that’s unreasonable. But will others think it is? I’m just not sure what to do. Any advice?
