Anyone else have the problem (or encounter the situation, or whatever) where an author (or the publishing company) jacks up the price of new books, yet you as a reader don't feel the writing justifies the price increase? I'm mostly seeing this in self-published authors, more so than published authors, though I have seen it in both. For example: Molly Harper's books are all being released in the $10 range for an ebook. I enjoy her work, but it's more in the $5-$6 range, based on quality of writing and enjoyment, to me. She is published via Simon & Schuster, so I'm sure the company is part of that decision. But I don't get it. An indie author I like has postponed releasing a full-length novel in favor of releasing a series of novellas -- which she released at $5 per novella. For a novella. In her case, I like the books and will read and reread them, but the price still makes me cringe. I get it when an author is just that stinkin' amazing. If Ilona Andrews books jumped up a couple bucks, or Nalini Singh, or Pat Rothfuss finally finishes/publishes book 3 and it ends up being $20 -- take the money! But when the quality of work doesn't match up to the price inflation, I abstain. Authors need to make money, too. And I imagine in this time of COVID-19, their budgets are strapped, much as anyone else's. But I've noticed this trend over a period of years. And it tends to turn me off of the author rather than inspire me to spend the extra $ or $$ to continue buying their work. Bear in mind, I don't even use Kindle Unlimited because I prefer to buy the book and money go to the author. But I'm not going to spend money on subpar fluff that I don't see as an equitable return on value. So...that said. Am I a snob about book pricing?
