The following wonderful news is excerpted from a note from Toni Weisskopf, publisher of Baen Books:
Well, it’s time: I can now officially say that we are making the transition to selling ebooks with Amazon on December 15th 2012. (We are also negotiating will all the other platforms, and will announce as soon as possible when we start selling with them.) . . . It does mean prices for our individual ebooks will be going up to meet the rest of the market (but yes, all titles will be DRM free). Individual hardcovers will be $9.99, trade pbs $8.99, and pbs $6.99. As part of the adjustment, we will also be raising ebook royalties to authors by 25% so that they get the benefit of both more sales (we hope) and higher prices.
Me again: That’s December 15. Mark your calendars.
