This week’s DBW ebook best-seller list, still led by the Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling) title The Cuckoo’s Calling, saw a lift in the average title price.
The average price of a best-selling ebook is $8.23. That’s a notable change from previous weeks, when prices were consistently in the $7.00 to $8.00 range.
So are ebook best-seller prices going up before they go down at the end of the year, as Jeremy Greenfield, writing for DBW’s Expert Publishing Blog, surmised last week?
While we await that answer, we do know that Penguin Random House ebooks continue to rank well. Twelve titles from that publisher have spots in the top 25. And, over half of the titles on the $10 and above list as well as on the $8.00 – $9.99 list come from PRH. At the same time, self-published titles are fading from view.
