Tampa bay business journal reported today that Amazon is ready to try again today to sell the Lady Gaga new album for 99cents. It will be a download from their cloud technology. It seems that mon-ties when Amazon tried the first time that the unexpected numbers overloaded and crashed their servers. There was widespread complaints from the .frustrated Gaga fans that the system did not accept their orders and did not send them when it reported it did.
Starting four hours ago my sales stopped. The rankings have not changed and standings are the same. This means that none at my heading is selling anything. I also think but do not know for certain, that if the Gaga crowd did not get their orders through, neither did our readers. I suspect .that kindle sales will be off for a while. I also suspect the system is overloaded again.
I mentioned in another forum that I have received a reply from Amazon on this iisue...actually two responses. The first one totally ignored what I was saying and said that I was still on the best seller list so everything was ok. About two hours later I received another reply telling me to ignore the first reply and that the issue was being investigated. That's where it stands right now.
