OneBookShelf / DriveThruRPG Price changes

Quick one here.

One Book Shelf

So last week I got a note from OneBookShelf about changes in their prices.  This will not go into effect until July, but I wanted to make you all aware.

This means that some prices might be changing for some of my books.

No idea which ones yet.  My inclination is to leave the prices of older titles the same and take the hit on the increase, but I need to figure out how much that is.  

Also, while I am still picking away at my High Witchcraft book as the last of my "Basic Era" witch books, I have also been mulling the idea of a "Complete Witch" for the new Swords & Wizardry boxed set.

It would be for Swords & Wizardry. 1-20+ levels and contain all the material from all my S&W books. I would put a big disclaimer on it to let people know what they are getting. It would be the class, all the traditions and spells, and magic items.  No monsters unless they are needed (like for a spell).  Same digest size as the S&W boxed set.  Maybe, maybe, some new content.

Is DriveThru taking a bigger percentage of sales?

It looks like Premium Colour will be the big loser, with really massive price increases. If you want a premium colour copy of a book, get one now (although some people have started reporting that that is no longer possible to do so for some titles).

Black and white and standard colour may experience some price increases, but premium colour is the one that has everyone running scared (personally if you get colour you should get premium colour since standard colour is rather dull and suffers from bleed through).

OBS is apparently looking at alternatives though, which may involve abandoning Lightning Source as their printers of choice.

[Some publishers are looking at providing Lulu ready files as alternatives, or opening a Lulu shop themselves.]

No. Adjusting the price of premium color books and lowering the prices on others.
