E-books have no supply — if I buy one, it doesn’t reduce how many remain, because theoretically infinite copies remain. No cost to reprint. No cost to remake. It just… sits out there, attempting to be the very embodiment of the Long Tail.

This is what the audience sees and believes.

It matters little what the e-book actually costs.

It only matters what the audience thinks they should cost.

But since this is about us, the audience, then we should say so ourselves, whatever our opinions may be. So tell us:

Would you be willing to pay more for an e-book from an indie publisher than from, say, Penguin?
