halfsickofshadovvs asked: If you don't mind me asking, why is The Ocean at the End of the Lane so expensive? I mean is it that you need money because I figured you wouldn't because of all the other stuff you've done that's been made into movies and things.
I’m afraid the author doesn’t set the book prices. That’s the publisher does that. Author royalties are a very small part of setting the price of a book. Normally the publishers bring out a hardcover first, and then, a year later, they bring out a much cheaper paperback. THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE has just been published, so it’s still in hardcover.
You can buy it relatively cheaply from online retailers: Amazon are selling it right now for $14.60, and as long as it’s in the New York Times Bestseller list most of the large chains, like Barnes and Noble, and some of the Indies, are also discounting it.
