Could any of you lovely people visit this link and see if Into the Fire appears free to you? It appears free to me, but appears as .99$ when I use an incognito window.

Reported everyone else!

$0.99 here.

I totally have a graphic for that. It's under Product Details.



EDIT: Thanks everyone for the prices! I've determined that it appears as free in Canada, but not the US.

Here is the smashwords link where it's free      https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/625171

and where it's free on Kobo:    https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/my-dirty-bet-an-alpha-male-comedy-short-story

Thank you very much!

Yeah, I noticed that, too.

Grace, did you do that on purpose?  Or did you just to forget to change one of them?  Just curious.

Thanks for reporting On the Shores of Irradan!

Hope it jump-starts your series, Ronald.  Good luck.   :)

I reported it again, Paul.  If you haven't already contacted Amazon and requested they price-match it, then I recommend you go ahead and do that.  Log into KDP and us the "contact us" button at the bottom.  Make sure to provide them with links to the other retailers where your book is free.

I have reported it three times so far and no luck. Here goes fourth time lucky ...

The way I got mine to be free fast was on the product page, report every link, saying it's free.  Then email amazon asking to price match, saying it's free on B&N, iTunes, Kobo, Google, and include all of the links to the free book.  Before, they would take a few days or even deny it.  Since switching to the new method, my books were made to be free within the next 24-36 hours.

I reported everyone on this page. Shield and the Shadow is free, even though Apple is still dragging their feet. (They've suddenly decided they don't like the EPUB that I've had up for months. I fixed their complaint, so hopefully they get on it, but I didn't realize that when I changed the price they would be reprocessing the EPUB too. I use smashwords for the distribution. They've been very helpful at least.) Good luck all!

Hi, and hope you can help. I recently published 2 short stories from my series free via Smashwords. However, when I asked Amazon to please reduce the price they said no. I've even attempted to report the lower price from the book page, but with no luck.

If any of you have any time to help and report the lower price for 1 of these, it would be much appreciated

Into the Fire is free in the US now. Yay!

Reported, but the Nook link takes me to a notice about how Nook isn't selling stuff in the UK anymore (I browse from Taiwan).

I reported everyone on this page. Shield and the Shadow is free, even though Apple is still dragging their feet. (They've suddenly decided they don't like the EPUB that I've had up for months.

Shield and the Shadow still shows up as paid to me :( Probably a Canadian thing.

Could anyone help with making my short story free?  It's a prequel to a longer book on Amazon.

and where it's free on Kobo:    https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/my-dirty-bet-an-alpha-male-comedy-short-story

Thank you very much!

You might have better luck if you uploaded to iTunes and Barnes and Noble and reported those links, too. I'm not sure Amazon matches with Smashwords, and they seem to be a bit sluggish matching with Kobo, in my experience.

Reported it, though!

Yes, sadly, I haven't been able to get permafree to stick in Canada or any of the international markets outside of the UK. My other bounces on and off free in the CA store. :(

Hi all!

So I'm trying to make my New Adult romance, SPANISH LESSONS (Study Abroad #1), free on Amazon.  Here's the link:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AYTSAJ4?keywords=spanish%20lessons%20by%20jessica%20peterson&qid=1453568442&ref_=sr_1_1&s=books&sr=1-1

I've already made it free on:

iBooks - https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/spanish-lessons/id1077597207?ls=1&mt=11
Kobo - https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/spanish-lessons-3

If anyone could report the lower price to Amazon, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Thank you in advance!
