Thanks for the suggestion. I’m trying that.

I think you can cancel the process at any time by emailing hello(at)inkshares.com

It’s a shame I can’t set it lower though. 
For a short novella I feel that I can’t really ask much more than $3-4 for an ebook version. 

Which brings me to another question: Is there a way to cancel the pre-order process when nobody has signed up yet? I started the process to see if I could adjust the prices, but I don’t actually want to go through with it.

At the funding stage, the ebook price is set at 50% of the printed book price. If you choose the hardcover option, the print book will be set at $30 and the ebook would be set at $15 ... even though the ebooks do not actually differ between the hardcover and paperback options.

Ah OK. So you mean I should just go ahead and allow the inclusion of the print option, but push people towards the ebook, as that’s a more reasonable price? Makes sense I guess. 
Does this mean though that there’s a pricing option for the ebook? I guess it would have to.

As I understand it, we all get an ebook-only option. It’s set at $10 for the campaign (which I suspect would end up being more expensive than your ebook) because it’s investing in the cost of producing the novella. 

Matt Sobin wrote a novella which is now in production, and his ebook is $3.99. 

I think whenever you switch over to funding, the ebook and print options will appear just as they appear on every other funding campaign. Hope that helps!

I’m working on a novella of 15k words, but the lowest price I can get preorders to seems to be $20, which I feel is asking way too much. 
While a print version would be nice, I feel that it would always be too expensive for that format, especially if PoD. 
Is there no option to do an ebook only version for shorter works like that?
