Is your author name Anna Paitian on amazon? I was wanting to take a peek at your work and based on the YouTube vids you posted I am assuming that is your author name.

If I'm not mistaken, when you give away books for free Amazon still incurs a cost for delivery (when you sell books for actual money the delivery fee is taken from your profit). If that's true then Amazon is actually losing profit by enabling you to give away your book for free (whether you did it by accident or not).

So if we continue with using the logic that you have used so far to respond to people here who have kindly answered your questions several times, it would seem that you, in fact, should owe Amazon and the sinister server because it's cost them money to give away 120 of your books for free.

By that logic, it is not them that is stealing money from you, but you who is costing them money ;)

C'mon, you know it's the Sinister Server.

Probably been stalking you for most of your life.

Anahit, My membership in the Trilateral Commission and the Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria allows me to be the final arbiter of what is posted in this thread. Booknook's post is fine.

Guys sorry to be the wet blanket again however this person is either a) trolling or b) quite disturbed/troubled. In either case I don't think it is appropriate to continue replying or provoking further.

Anahit, I recommend just leaving this matter alone for now and seeking some professional help to sort out whatever it is your are going through psychologically. For when you come back to self-publishing (when you have addressed some of the other issues which are clearly troubling you) I should point out that when I started with KDP, my free giveaways were the thing that kicked off my eventual paid sales.

Good luck :)

BE HONEST,
WRITE from your heart.
never allow them to edit or format your book. they will put their EVIL breath on it.
USE a PDF format and upload .

unless you have a decent publisher.
I am working with one now.
he is a guy with taste and understanding .
I see now this amazon is pure EVIL

Now who would get a kick out of telling me that uploading a PDF is the way to go? Is that you NotJohn? That's just gotta be you!

I'm afraid the fun may be over. I think I've out'ed the funny man. And if I'm not mistaken it should be his bedtime right about now. (He's not getting any younger!)

There's a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery
An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say cookoo
Cookoo, cookoo...
