Contact KDP, if you haven't done so already, and request price-matching.  Make sure to provide them with links to other retailers where the book is free.

I wish I could, but I'm doing this on behalf of a friend and he uploaded the book through Streetlib because they allowed you to make it free on Amazon... until a few weeks ago :(

If anyone has time for this, could they report this book as free to Amazon? >

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0795BWS7P

It's free on Itunes and GP (the usual suspects)

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id1336107230

https://play.google.com/store/books/details/J_Sharpe_Eden?id=41lHDwAAQBAJ

Thanks a bunch!

Reported it.

I'm trying (and so far failing) to make a short story perma free. If someone would report it as free to Amazon, I'd be most grateful.

I reported it, MH, but I'm not sure if they'll price-match Kobo.  I'm also not sure if they'll price-match a pre-order.  If you haven't done so already, contact KDP and ask them to price-match it.

Good luck.  :)

Hi all, just a quick update, my book is out of pre-order and it's up for free on Itunes as well. Sadly, Amazon still hasn't moved on it and I have a free blitz I'll get creamed on if they won't flip it soon :( If someone wouldn't mind reporting it, I'd very much appreciate. Thank you!
