Product Description
Where is Adam?

Julie Raynes’ husband has been missing for six months. Devastated and confused, she refuses to believe that he would leave her voluntarily, though her best friend thinks differently. However, her Aunt Alice, a psychic, tells her Adam has been murdered, and when she reveals how she knows this, any hope that Adam is still alive, dissipates.

The police are also beginning to believe that Adam Raynes was murdered. And Julie is their prime suspect. Her life in ruins, Julie vows to hunt down whoever is responsible for Adam’s murder and make them pay for their crime.

In the meantime, David Gray, a young man who was pulled from a lake by a fisherman when he was 9 years old, wakens from a coma after nearly two decades. Unknown to Julie, Adam and David share a dark connection, a darkness that threatens to devour both of them, in a terrifying race with death.

Pricing on KDP versus other eBook sites
« on: October 18, 2016, 07:10:44 AM »
Greetings all. Apologies if this has been addressed in other threads but I was unable to find one.

Does Amazon care or take action if pricing varies between the Kindle store and other eBook stores [Kobo, Smashwords, etc], especially if the price is lower elsewhere? I know they use site scrapes to pull pricing for other items from other eTailers.

If customers report a lower price elsewhere, Amazon will often lower theirs so as not to be undercut. This is true for everything they sell -- to the extent that they can reduce the price.

For ebooks, I think Amazon will almost always be the lowest price because of this. And there are a lot of ebooks that are exclusive to Amazon as well.

There are also some of the big publishers whose agreements with Amazon, and presumably other ebook resellers, that restrict how much the reseller can discount the ebook.
