Hmm. So I have a dilemma my friends. I will be making print-on-demand copies of Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy via LuLu and I noticed that it costs almost double to print a novel in Pocket format (10.795cm x 17.463cm or 4.25″ x 6.875″) than it does to print a novel in A5 format (14.817cm x 20.99cm or 5.833″ x 8.264″). Naturally, I want to be as easy on your wallets as I can be. That’s one of the main reasons I went with self-publishing, because I can decide on the pricing for my own books without bleeding you fine folks dry for your love of reading.
Naturally, Pocket format looks more like the mass-produced paperbacks that we’re used to but A5 costs less. For reference, here’s an example of A5 versus Pocket:
The A5 novel, obviously, is on the left there. (And is actually one of my favourite books. I’m just sayin’.)
I guess my question is, readers, do you care either way? Have any preferences?
Now, for the promised sample of Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy. See you after the jump! Continue reading “The Broken Prophecy – Sample III & paperback update”
