Amazon is ripping me off
« on: January 04, 2012, 06:37:05 AM »
I've been giving away my ebook for free from my website but today I discovered that it's listed on Amazon UK for 1.47 pounds (not sure if they've sold any).

I've sent them an email asking WTF is going on but am still waiting for a reply. Not only is it doubtful I'd be seeing any money from this but someone has obviously spent abut 2 minutes converting  to mobi and it looks like complete crap. It makes me look like a useless thrid rate self publisher who doesn't care about quality. Why would anyone want to buy it anyway?

Argh. Just a little bit annoyed right now.

I had an email from Amazon today (after another couple of emails from me and a live webchat) saying that my ebook The Space Between would be taken down off all Amazon sites within 3 days. It was up in the US as well as the UK.

I asked if any copies were sold but haven't heard back yet.

The book is still available for free download from my website www.scottjrobinson.com and I'm having a competition on my blog that can win you book 2 and 3 as well. Check it out at...

The books aren't free any more. The first 3 in the series are available from Amazon.
