Hey guys, I've got a favor to ask. My book has gone up on B&N free, and I would like Amazon to price match. If anyone can spare a moment, and enter the information below in the "Tell Us About A Lower Price" in the product information area.

I Think It Moved:
B&N: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/I-Think-It-Moved/Adrianna-White/e/2940011453427
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Erotic-Short-Think-Moved-ebook/dp/B005FG2EIU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1314069804&sr=8-2

My Escort Confessions:
B&N: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/my-escort-confessions-hard-cock-and-paid-pussy-adrianna-white/1104808162?ean=2940011452222&itm=1&usri=adrianna%2bwhite
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Escort-Confessions-Hard-Pussy-ebook/dp/B005G88IXW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_kinc_3?ie=UTF8&m=AZC9TZ4UC9CFC

Any help would be appreciated, and I would be willing to help anyone else out. Thanks,

Gregory

I appreciate it.  I have done the same, however, until it goes on B&N you're not likely to get it price matched.  Been looking around, and even with my own experience, they will not price match.  But I did it, and if it doesn't go free, when B&N uploads the book, please let me know and I will resend the information.

Thanks!

I reported it and was going to download it from B&N, but they wanted my credit card info, so I'll wait until it's free in the kindle store.

And when it does go free on Kindle, boy oh boy! Never seen anything like it. Just the sheer power of a thousand downloads in less than a day!

Really? Thousands!!! Wow! I've had almost 400 in four days on Smashwords. Can't wait!

Question, it's in que for premium distribution at SmashWords. Will it then go to B and N once it's premium?

Gregory, best of luck to you on this. Let us know how  downloads go.


Thanks, all.

Many thanks to everyone.

PJ, I wish :).  Once accepted, it will take at least a week to ship, and then once it had shipped, it will take about two more weeks to appear in the store.  Not fun, I can tell you that.  But the reward is huge, which makes up for it.

I got you as well Jacqueline.  I would suggest both you and PJ also visit the Author Tag Exchange in this forum, as I've noticed no tagging support on either on your books.  It makes a great deal of difference.  Not at first, but once you get up to 50+ tags, which doesn't take long thanks to all the great people on this site, sales go up noticeably.

Really? Thanks so much for that tagging tip. It's okay if it takes a month for my Amazon book to become free. I'm finishing up another novel, so hopefully it will be out when the free read is released here. Best of luck, Gregory!

Yeah, maybe take it down. I never put Schnitzel for sale on B and N. I just uploaded it to Smashwords. Make sure it's formatted correctly so it gets premium. I recently uploaded Schnitzel to Kindle and have asked friends to report that it's free at Smashwords, but I guess it will need to go to bigger venues such as B and N for them to change the price.

All of my stories are already in the premium catalog. I just opt out of B&N and Amazon because I prefer to be more hands on with them.

I am curious about the reporting though. Can you see your B&N sales on the pubit site even though it's sent through Smashwords?

Not sure myself sorry, my first book just went up free today, within the last 6 hours.  Though, I haven't seen one sale through B&N yet, even at free, so maybe it takes awhile.

The power of free is craaaaaaaaaazy on Amazon! and I even got a boost on BN too. The Gifts went free on Amazon (FINALLY) last saturday. (I made it free on Smashwords about 8 weeks ago) I uploaded through BN through pubit, and it's not necessary to take your book down there. Smashwords links to whats already there, and yes you can still see your sales on pubit.

I already started a post about this, but just a recap..since last Saturday I'm at about 13,000 free downloads on Amazon ( in less than a week!!!!) and I've sold a little over 200 books of the other two books of my trilogy since it went free on Amazon....so Yeah free is definitely worth it!  Bn I was only selling like 2 books a month, now it has jumped to around 2 to 5 books a day. Sales are not great there, so I've heard, so that is a HUGE difference.

Ill go report for you now :)

Ps...Gregory it's even with all the reporting...it took about 4 or 5 weeks for Amazon to price match mine to free from BN.com so...get ready for a little bit of a wait!

No other way, maybe sales but who knows when that will happen, though I believe Smashwords will assign an ISBN?  Sorry, I'm not exactly clear on that one, as a Canadian I get all mine free, but I have heard people on this forum talk about using smashwords own service for that.

Good luck,

Gregory
