With this in mind, below are nine pointers you can use to help you pinpoint the ideal price for your ebook. They act as a series of questions that you need to ask yourself to encourage new readers to approach your work. You will soon find yourself striking that all important balance between earning money from your work and reaching out to old and new readers.
