So, I’ve been working with this buyer since October of last year on a novel. She began commissioning her novel right before I raised my prices from $0.01/word to $0.04/word. I’ve honored the original quote by doing the work for $0.01/word, but now we’re on the last chunk of this book, and she’s expressed interest in working with me on the sequel.
Problem is, I don’t know how to broach the subject of the price change with her. I don’t care whether or not she still wants to work with me after (it’s all her choice, after all), but I’m not sure of how to communicate the price change in a way that shows tact.
