New EPIC Pricing Study Group Being Created

The Electronically Published Industry Coalition (EPIC) Board of Directors has authorized the establishment of a group to study issues pertaining to: distribution, percentages, pricing, discounts, etc. What is being done now? What SHOULD be the practice? What can/should EPIC do about it? The conclusions of this group should fit into the Strategic Plan for ACTUAL implementation, and will be voted on for inclusion in the Strategic Plan by the membership.

The group can be established as a one-shot deal, or it can be ongoing. However, we don't want the work to either drag on forever or be lost in the Yahoogroups bitbucket. So, there will be milestones to measure the effectiveness of the group's work.

Most of the members of this group should be industry members or self-published author members. All applicants for this group should have a strong background in publishing.

Once the group is formed, the president of EPIC will appoint a leader to guide it through to completion of the task. Milestones will be set by the board and the group.

Publishers and self-published authors, we need your expertise and clear thought.
