Torquere’s prices are going up on their shorter works — everything below novel length. Apple doesn’t allow any books to be sold elsewhere for a lower price than they’re sold for in the Apple store, so… there you go.
New prices will be in accordance with wordcount rather than by line: up to 10K words will cost $1.99, up to 20K will cost $2.99, etc. Novels will stay the same price as before: $5.95 or $6.95 depending on length.
New books released in June already reflect the new pricing; backlist books will have their prices increased on 1 July. If you’ve had any older Torquere books on your wish list for a while, now’s the time to go grab them.
Best Deal: for anyone who’s been meaning to get my novelette “A Spirit of Vengeance,” Torquere sells it for $2.49 right now, but Amazon has the Kindle edition for $1.99. After 1 July, it’ll be $2.99, so you can save a dollar — one third off the new price — if you can read Kindle books.
