Topic: Paid story length vs. price
Hello my fellow forumites,
As many of you know I sell stories on Amazon as well as the ones I post for free here (I'll come back to 7 days to a new you soon, I promise). For a bit of background, my average story is 10-12k words and sells for $2.99. My last few stories have been much longer than average; 14, 18 and finally 30k words. While I am willing to sell the former two at the same price, my most recent story took nearly double the effort of most of my others (30k=~70 pages of size 12 font). I'd really like to get more out of it, so herein lies my questions. As (hypothetical) paid story consumers, is it more palatable to split the story into two (or possibly 3) parts at $2.99 apiece or keep the story together and sell it for more ($3.99 or $4.99)? One reason I'm asking here is the story is from one of my more bondage/mundane transformation (aka no alchemy) series (confined fashion), so there would be less conflict of interest. The story won't come out until next month, so I have a bit of time to decide, and I'd appreciate any feedback you'd be willing to give me.
