My Book Pricing and Removing Older Books from Sale

Covers of my books for iOS 11, iOS 12, iOS 13, iOS 14, macOS High Sierra, macOS Mojave, macOS Catalina, and macOS Big Sur arranged in a grid with iOS books on top and macOS Books on the bottom.

Over the last few years the price of many services and products has increased. Even large companies are not immune to this, and in the last week Amazon has begun sending out emails to those who use their paperback and hardcover service, Kindle Direct Publishing. The email that they sent out indicates that the pricing of printed books will be increasing.

What this means is that the price for my books will be going up. This is necessary if I want to make any profit at all. Therefore, the price of the paperback version of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and watchOS 9 for Users and Developers has increased from $14.99 to $18.99. Similarly, the hardcover version has increased from $44.99 to $49.99.

The prices of my book iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS Monterey, and watchOS 8 for Users and Developers will remain the same at $14.99 for the paperback and $39.99 for the hardcover. The reason that these are staying the same is due to fact that these are not available for "expanded distribution", which means that prices can be lower.

Beyond the pricing changes, I have also made the decision to remove the older paperback and hardcover titles. The reason for this is that they do not generally sell once a newer book is released. It should be noted that this does not affect the ePub versions of these books. They will remain available for purchase. This change only affects the physical versions of the books. The complete list of books being removed are:

These older titles will be removed from sale in early June, so if you want to get a physical copy of any of my older books, be sure to order them today. Again, this change only affects the physical books and not the e-books. Those will continue to be available.
