The Keepers of Sulbreth introduces the island kingdom of Futhark where a small group of sorceresses called, Keepers, have used their gifts to contain the denizens of hell behind a magical gate. But something is slowly going wrong and more and more of the demons escape into the human world. Working with the young king of Futhark, the Keepers find a gifted warrior foretold in prophecies to help them close the magical seals. Cage Stone reluctantly gets pulled into the dangers facing Futhark. The otherworldly foes force him to reveal his secrets and his heritage. As he bloodies his sword in demon blood, he slowly realizes the dark mind behind the troubles have been controlling his destiny from his birth. He vows to take back his life and save Futhark at the same time.

Keepers recieved many excellent reviews when it was first released, including from Publisher's Weekly and Booklist. Now my goal is to remind readers of this and restart my promotion.
I have a lot still to learn about self-publishing and the best way to promote the book. The price is another thing I've had to make decisions on. I priced the book at $2.99 to start. I've read JA Konrath's blog many times and absorbed his advice. It's a tough decision.
The price of ebooks is a controversial issue in and of itself. I buy lots of ebooks. Some of the reasonably priced ones written by my friends but I also purchase ebooks from 'famous' authors and I do resent paying the same price as for a mass market paperback. Why should an ebook cost that much when there is no shipping, no manufacturing or storage costs?
What do you think is a reasonable price for ebooks? What royalty rate should authors receive from ebooks? The same as print?
