I’m publishing a nonfiction emotional guide book with an assisted publishing group in India. My target audience is Indian diaspora in America. The assisted publishers are pricing my 180 page 6x9 paperback book at $13 with Ingram. And suggested $2.99 for the e-book. I don’t agree with or understand this pricing.
I’ve asked them to get the price down to < $10 but they say it’s impossible to do that for print on demand. I’ve asked for the e book to goto $4.99
My question is:
Should I ditch the Ingram and publishers route and just goto amazon and publish by myself?
(They’re also going to run a free ebook campaign to get its reviews and ratings up)
