If you follow Joe Konrath's blog, you may have noticed increased discussion about proper pricing of e-books and e-stories. Lately, opinion has swung away from $ 0.99, because buyer reaction seems to be that the price denotes crappy writing. That makes pricing short stories difficult. I decided that I'd see what would happen if I asked $ 2.99 for this one. At 0.99, the author's share is 0.35. That doesn't recoup publishing costs.
"Akitada's First Case" also has a bonus chapter with it, in this case the first chapter from DRAGON SCROLL which continues Akitada's career.
