Kindle repricing

Hey there. Just a head’s up that I’m repricing all of my Kindle fiction at .99 for a time to see what, if any, affect this has on sales. If you have purchased a book from me (for the PRINCELY sum of three dollars) and are upset that you paid full price and I went […]

#myfirstcomicshop
