I have a Free read anthology of some of my various authors. It's a free read for promo purposes. Is there no way to put it on Amazon? Tries to load it like a regular title but Amazon wants it priced.

KDP is intended for authors to sell books. You can submit to Smash*words and price it free there.

Yea. I know. Romance Divine sells hundreds of $$ of product (books) at KDP each month. I'd simply like them to allow some free promo opportunities. And I don't deal with Smashwords. Not my thing.

As already noted, you have to price an ebook at 99c or higher. That might be low enough to get the bargain seeker, who might then be interested in buying. You can also give it away for free 5 days out of every 90 by enrolling in Select (meaning it's available no where else--I'm not sure if your authors' full works are available elsewhere, which could affect things).
