The Coffee Priced Ebook

Author Derek Haines announces that all the ebook versions of his books will be the priced the same as a single cup of coffee.
March 21, 2011 - PRLog -- With the wildly varying prices charged by ebook vendors, Derek Haines believes he has found the right pricing formula for his ebooks. The price of a cup of coffee. In 2004, CNNmoney published a list of the prices of a Starbucks latte in major cities around the world. The average price was around US$3.00.

From this information, and the fact that people who read ebooks on their favourite e-reader such as Kindle, Nook or iPad probably drink coffee, he decided that the two facts coincided. Believing that pricing his ebooks the same, or even a little less than a latte will bring readers to understand the value they are getting from an ebook purchase.

If you consider how many cups of coffee you would consume during the time it takes to read a whole book, my ebook price of US$2.99 is outstanding value.

Currently, Derek Haines is offering his ebooks for $0.99 until the end of March as a part of a promotion for his new book, February The Fifth.
