Amazon is raising their book printing prices in June. I’m not sure when/how it will all work, but I wanted to give you the heads up so that if you were planning on buying books, you could do it now before the end of May.
We will not be getting any extra money from the increase. This is just on Amazon’s end. Actually, I have been impressed with them keeping their prices the same over the last two years when we’ve seen such an increase in other things. It was pretty inevitable. The general idea is that the price is going about $1.20 for every 100 pages, so some books, like readers, will be affected more than parent guides, which would just go up cents.
When I’ve looked into other places to publish, I always end up back at Amazon as the cheapest option. One of our core values at EP is availability; having low-cost books is part of our striving to do that.
