If you scroll down her blog post a bit she talks about it and about how she's against authors bundling full length novels together for a dollar. She says it's hurting e-book sales.

Based on what I can tell, the 99 cent bundles are a way to get noticed and to make it onto best-seller lists--basically a marketing tool as opposed to driving the prices down to rock bottom or making money. And authors say the bundles or the 99 cent price is for a limited time. *shrug*

Yes but unfortunately buyers get used to those deals and don't want to purchase one e-book for $10 or whatever the price is when they can buy a bundle for next to nothing. I can definitely see their point of view.
