Hello. I want to revise something I've published on the kindle. How do I remove it from availability during the rewrite?

click on the title in your shelf, then expand section 3 (price). there's a check box there - "amazon kindle store" - just uncheck it. however, it will NOT immediately remove your book from the catalog - it could take days or longer to become unavailable. so if it goes longer than about three days, post a request here on the forum in a new thread for the DTP admins to fix. :-)

cheers,

I have tried unchecking the box, and it will not uncheck. What can I do now? I've tried writing to Amazon directly. But nothing. I would very much like to take this corrupted title down. "Living Lost" by J. Wood.

Many thanks for any help.

I'm experiencing a similiar problem. I tried unchecking the box but it doesn't uncheck and I'd like to remove the two stories I put up; but don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hey, all -

i don't know if this will help, but sometimes if you flush the browser's cache some of these display-related problems go away. the instructions are here: http://genome.chop.edu/access/pages/help/flushing_cache.html.

cheers,

Hi Support,

Thanks for your swift answering.

However, I followed your instructions and hit the Preview button, and all I got was a faded blank screen with nothing in the center column. The html book did not show up even though it said that the book was "live".

Could you help?

I am finding better results using Firefox. The boxes seem to respond better.

I cannot uncheck that box. I have tried two computers and 4 browsers! What is going on? Why is the support for DTP so bad? Where is Amazon to help its own publishers???
