And I say, don’t buy my book on Amazon, because I’m offering it free everywhere else. Amazon is the only retailer where you’ll need to pay to get a copy.
And frankly, that isn’t fair to people who want to read it, so that’s why I’m telling you not to buy it on Amazon while I try and figure out how to get them to price match the book. You see, I recently relaunched this book with a new cover, and a few updated tweaks through Draft2Digital. Now I used their Amazon channel, since the original book had never been in KDP and I didn’t want to bother with two separate uploads for a free offering. Apparently Amazon doesn’t like that when it comes to asking them to price match.
Here’s how it went:
I uploaded the book to D2D. I got the expected message that the free book would be listed on Amazon at .99 cents and I would have to have Amazon price match to get them to list for free. I took that to mean I would have to contact Amazon to ask them to price match (perhaps I was wrong, I don’t know). So I contacted Amazon.
This is what I was told: “If your book is published through Draft2Digital, a 3rd party, you will need to contact them regarding any maintenance including a price match. We can only provide support for titles published through Kindle Direct Publishing.”
I have contacted Draft2Digital to see what is going on, but frankly I don’t hold out hope they can get it straightened out on Amazon. From what I saw, they only want to price match KDP and my guess is I won’t be able to list it there for free through D2D. If that is the case, I may leave as is, withdraw it from the D2D Amazon channel and republish through KDP, or withdraw it from Amazon altogether. I don’t know yet.
But don’t despair!
