Hi Folks, sorry, more questions from me! I'm looking at making my collection of short stories available as a paperback through createspace, and I've been playing about with numbers on their royalties calculator.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the kindle version has to be a certain percentage less than the paperback version, but I can't find it! But if a book is say $3.49 on Kindle, what would folks suggest for paperback?

It should be at least 20% cheaper on Kindle.

I generally price my Kindle editions at half what the paperback sells for. So in your case, try $6.95 and see if you can make a decent profit on Amazon sales (the vast majority), and at least break even on extended distribution.
