I bought the first digital version. When I turned it into a paperback I started at the lowest price, bought a few copies and then upped the price to where it should be. It takes a day to change the price once, so two days to do it. One benefit of being lower on the chart is that no one should notice the price change. I did it before telling anyone it was available. If you want the paperback version you wont get it for free, no matter where. There is a cost to print it. As someone said it does help your ranking to purchase your book.
This may sound like a stupid question, but how does the author get a copy of their own self published book from amazon without paying for it?
The copy you have to review before publishing is downloadable and can be viewed... if you use CreateSpace for the paperback you can buy discounted - basically at cost copies.. no royalties or credit for those..

I think most authors buy a copy as soon as their book goes liv
And one other reason that this is a Real Good Idea is that it gives you a copy of EXACTLY what the customer is getting. In some rare instances, this may be different from what one sees in any of the previewers/emulators.
