All my titles show "Pricing information not available" on their sales pages.
The most annoying thing about all this is the total lack of communication from Amazon about what's going on (or not, as the case may be). If they had a little bit of civility or care about the people who are ultimately bringing Amazon in easy money then they would keep us all fully informed at all times.
For me, Amazon are holding me to ransom now, as my titles are all locked into their KDP Select programme so that I am unable to publish and earn elsewhere. After this debacle has been sorted out I will be pulling all my titles out of the KDP Select... and then it will be Smashwords here I come!
I had a reply about an hour ago. They basically told me that because my book was ‘live’ on their site that I didn’t have a problem. They ignored my question and they ignored the issue that I can’t edit my book or mange the KDP Select program.
Well, mine is live now, thankfully. But there's still no look inside. I need to edit right away to take out the illustrator, since the search makes it look like he's another author, but I'm concerned it'll get stuck again :s
FYI - My book was stuck for 2 days. I wrote and asked for it be made draft again so i could edit it. This morning, the link was live again and I republished the book very quickly. It is now in the publishing mode again and still available on the site.
thanks to KDP for responding to this. My other concern will be helping those who bought the first version of the book update their copy to get the images that are now in the current copy.
After 3.5 days, and three emails to KDP, they put my book back into draft mode yesterday. Made the changes, now I'm waiting for it to go 'live' again. The question is...after 14 hours, have the changes actually been put into effect, i.e., on Amazon, or is this just a glitch on KDP? No way to tell unless I buy another ebook and look for the recent changes.
Mine is live too now, but there's no look inside. It makes me concerned that it might not really be up on KDP Select properly. There doesn't seem to be any way to see how it is viewed my Prime members, which seems a bit stupid.
I know it's probably a very stupid question, but: you are looking on the right site, aren't you? Yes, I know you've almost certainly not gone to the wrong one, but I can't see pricing information on my book on Amazon.com, because I can't buy it from .com - I have to get it from .co.uk
Here's a message I received from Kindle Support. They responded very quickly.
I am sorry for the trouble you've had on our web site and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
I'm afraid we did have a technical glitch in our publishing pipeline that prevented some of the books from going "Live". However, these issues have since been resolved and I can now confirm your Kindle book "A Shot of Whiskey, A Beer Chaser" is already "Live" in your KDP bookshelf. Therefore, you can certainly go ahead and make the necessary changes now.
