Recently, I was going through “My Author’s Page” on Amazon and discovered a couple of wrong entries. One of them didn’t belong at all; and I was able to have it removed quickly. The other was a copy of my book, “Mitch,” though the cover was all wrong. After three frustrating days, more-or-less, I managed to find out what was going on. It seems, if someone has a copy of my book, he can sell it on Amazon.com as a used book. It is sort of a way you can buy my books at a bargain. I don’t mind so much, but the book is automatically listed on my author’s page and I have nothing to say about it.
I guess it’s not really my page after all. Not only is the used book listed on my page, but now, after all I went through, the new copies aren’t, leastwise not that I can find. So if you want to buy a new copy, you can’t.
Well, I guess that’s okay. At least you can get the book at bargain. The book sells new for $6.39. Think of the bundle you can save by buying the new one at over $30.00. That’s right. They are selling the used one at 3 times the cost of the new one! Go figure. In the meantime, the thirty dollar figure is scaring readers away from the new books, maybe from my books altogether.
Another interesting fact, an aside. The used book is “Currently unavailable.”
If you can figure that one out, let me know.
In the meantime, if you want the book, send me an E-mail. (KAAY@att.net) I’ll try to have one sent to you for $6.39 + shipping. No promises. The way things are going, even that might be a trick.
For those who have your books listed on Amazon, an additional note. You might want to manage your own copyrights. I found out that that the dates listed by Amazon are years later than mine.
If the book is worth $30.00, maybe I under priced it.
Not likely. I think those who have read it will say it is worth $6.39 but not $30.
