Pricing strategies 

Michael Marcus took a break from targeting author services companies that are inept or possess questionable business ethics and wrote this excellent post about pricing and value for authors to consider when establishing a price point for their book.

The first in a series about mistakes self-publishers make, I really agree with this one and certainly fall into the category of authors who needed to do more research when I made the jump into self-publishing.  This post stresses the need to learn about the self-publishing industry.
