Daisy is so mad, she turns to cranky cat for comfort—he is just as peeved. Prices changes are underway now. In July, Joe Wilcox lowered some prices in anticipation of Amazon Kindle Unlimited bringing more readers. For most titles that’s not the case. So he is raising prices on some titles and changing distribution for others.
Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other Online News Gatherers jumps from $3.99 to $7.99 and Comic-Con Heroes: The Fans Who Make the Greatest Show on Earth to $3.99 from 99 cents. As compensation, there will be a freebee day for both books before Christmas.
Most titles will resume distribution through Google Play and Smashwords around Jan. 14, 2015, after the current, exclusive Amazon 90-day period ends at Amazon.
Daisy is hopping happy. On Friday, the first major update to Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other Online News Gatherers published to Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords. The book now also sells for original list price of $9.99, unless discounted by the retailer.
The revisions mostly add or update content, particularly plucking gems from Pew Research Journalism Project report “State of the News Media 2014“.

The rabbit cannot contain her excitement as she romps around the publishing den. Two days ago, Pew Research Journalism Project released report “State of the News Media 2014“. Earlier this month, Daisy made a tough editorial decision. To publish Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other News Gatherers with year-old data. She reasoned we could update the book when the newer report released later in the month. It’s here!
Editing is underway now, and version 1.01 of the book will publish before end of the weekend. When that happens, the $7.99 sale price ends, and the regular $9.99 kicks in. So grab Responsible Reporting quick and save two bucks. You will get the update either way, but why pay more for it? The book is available from Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords.
Per Daisy’s instructions (that damn, rabbit), selling prices for Chromebook Matters and Comic-Con Heroes will rise—to $4.99 and $5.99, respectively, on March 18. The Principles of Disruptive Design will go up to $5.99 when the second revised edition releases next month.
Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other Online News Gatherers released with introductory price of $7.99. Daisy warns that the regular $9.99 is imminent. Buy now and save. Read More
The rabbit is fickle when the carrots are late and Easter approaches. She slashes the My Cat Wants to Know price to $1.49—practically a giveaway. But there also is method to madness. A deluxe, and costlier, edition arrives in early 2015 at Apple’s iBookstore. The lavish late-arrival will demonstrate how good are the tools in the fruit basket, Daisy says.
For those who can’t wait—and want to save some cash—the picture book is yours for about the price of a small Cup of Joe. My Cat Wants to Know features the work of 20 photographers, with their art set against 25 oddball and informative questions. The book is a quick, light read that tickles the fancy with dramatic and proud felines rather than cliché cute kitties.
