If I add a story into a short story collection, will those who have already purchased be able to "update" to the new version for free? Or will it be sent to them automatically? Does anyone know?

I've noticed that when a cover changes on a book I already have, I see the new cover on my Kindle for PC. I'm not sure about the text though...

I think the customer has to contact Amazon directly to request an updated version of a book they already purchased. I could be be wrong - maybe someone else has more experience of this?

From the KDP FAQ:

https://kdp.amazon.com/self-publishing/help?topicId=A36BYK5S7AJ2NQ#3-16

3-16 Do I have to re-buy or re-upload my book to get the updated copy I re-published?

If you've already purchased your book and subsequently revise the content and re-publish the updated version, you don't need to re-purchase the book to get a copy. At this time, it's not possible for publishers to receive the updated file without contacting KDP Support for help. We're working to automate this feature and appreciate your understanding with our existing solution to manually send the updated content to your device.

We request your explicit permission, and will do the same for any customers who contact us to receive the updated content, prior to sending the revised file because the new version will not have previously saved Highlights, Last Page Read, Bookmarks, and the location of notes may not match. If this is acceptable, please email [email protected] confirming your permission and which title/s you'd like to have re-sent. Thank you.

Note: Customers who purchased the old content can also contact our Customer Service department to have the new file delivered.

Thanks swolf! Now I remember reading it on KDP's site when I was first starting, but somehow I had forgotten all about it, LOL. :)

Good to know they are working on making it automatic.
