Established British author tries the Indie route

Guardian.co.uk has an interesting article about British author Stephen Leather who decided to publish several novellas on the Kindle platform and had breakout success. From the article:

” To maximise sales, he priced his books at Amazon’s minimum for independent writers – about 70p (the equivalent of 99 cents). At this level, authors receive a cut of only 35% of the price; under Amazon’s pricing structure, this rises to 70% if they price their books above the equivalent of $2.99. He then went on various forums to drum up awareness. “
