Box Sets

Posted by Patrice Wilton | 8:33 AM | 9 comments »

Good morning,
Last month I told you all that I was going to put a box set of my Candy Bar series up on Amazon, and that it would be my first  experiement at doing this. Well, I'm here to report that is was much easier than I anticipated, but so far the results, or sales have not been exactly exciting. Now, mind you, it's only been up for sale for less than two weeks and I've had 3 sales, 4 including my own, but I priced it at $3.99 which seemed a very good price considering that each book sells separately for $1.99.
If it doesn't improve soon by next month I will reduce it to $2.99 and see what happens then.
DD Scott, who writes the best selling romantic comedy Bootlickin' series, sold a 6 book set for $2.99 that generated enormous sales. May we all be so lucky, or good!
Here is my link so you can see what a 3D cover looks like and how I described the book in the introduction.

I hope this has inspired you to try the same.

    Patrice the package looks awesome. I hope you sell a ton of them. How do you plan to market/publicize this new venture?

    Patrice, you make me want to work harder! The sets will sell, once you hit the best price.

    Thanks everyone! I'm learning as I go and excited about the venture, which is a whole lot better than I felt a year ago!!
