The Vagaries of Amazon

Despite their constant touting of the extensive array of free Kindle books, Amazon does not actually offer any way for an author to price her books free for all time. From what I can tell, the best way to get around this is to make your books free (I keep trying to say ‘set your books free’) at other online bookstores, and Amazon will theoretically price-match within a few days.

Well, it’s been a few weeks, and my short story, The Legacy of the Shreevani, is still resolutely sitting there at .99 with not a copy having sold. It is a *very* short story and I don’t want to charge for it, but I’m getting tired of waiting to make the official release announcement. So I guess Amazon is just going to have to sit this one out.

Check out The Legacy of the Shreevani for free at Smashwords and Barnes and Noble! It features aliens, interstellar war, and a stunning cover by Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein.

Other points of interest:

Is anyone ridiculously excited for the Sailor Moon anime reboot? Because I am incredibly excited. Check this out!

This recurring writing contest is judged by an agent, and concentrates on a different field each iteration. This time it’s  contemporary middle grade fiction.

I would also like thank Erin Lynn Jeffreys Hodges for their continued support.
