Today, my contemporary romance and romantic comedy, DOUBLE TROUBLE, is free at Amazon. It will be free for Kindle through Saturday, using up all five days possible in the KDP Select promo in one go. DOUBLE TROUBLE is book #2 in my Coxwells series – I chose it for the promotion because it has better reviews thatn THIRD TIME LUCKY and some of the sites that announce these promos base their decisions to list or not list upon the review rankings. Here’s a link to info about the Coxwell series on my site.
These four books, btw, are all also available in new trade paperback editions, and those trade paperback editions are for sale on Amazon. I’ve not had any luck in getting Amazon to link the new print editions to the product pages for the books, though. To find them, you’ll need to search by title or go to my Deborah Cooke Amazon author page. It will look as if there are two listings for the books, but one is the Kindle edition (linked to the previous print editions) and one is the new print edition. The new print edition has the new cover. With any luck, that will be sorted out soon.
Lots of readers don’t like authors putting books in the KDP Select promotion, as it means that the book must be listed exclusively for sale at Amazon for 90 days and that it’s only free for Kindle when it goes free for five days during that period. On the other hand, going free everywhere is getting tougher to orchestrate with every passing week – because Amazon doesn’t always match a free price posted elsewhere. One upside to KDP Select is that the book goes free at all Amazon portals, so those of you shopping through Amazon UK or one of the other European portals can also pick a up a free copy. In contrast, price matching of a free price tends to be restricted by territory. If Amazon matches a free price listing on B&N, for example, they will usually only match it for US consumers as B&N only markets to US consumers.
So, here we go. Make sure you get your copy!
