While .99 cents might be seen as way too cheap for a decent length novel or novella according to THIS thread, I was wondering what the thoughts were on that price point for the "Short Read" categories?

I had an idea for a short read, but was wondering if a $2.99 price might be a bit much for something 25-ish pages in length.

Actually, I think $7.95 is a great price for a short read.

Unfortunately, it won't get many takers.

I personally think that anything short of 50 pp should go for 99 cents. 50-100 pp you might try 1.49; 101-150 pp 1.99 and over that, 2.99 looks legit.

Actually, for stuff under 20 pp, I'd think 59 cents would be a better price, but the Zon has a 99 cent minimum, I think.
