I need to know what customers pay for my books when they order (A) paperback (B) Kindle? Star was published in 2009 and have yet to receive any notifications from Amazon re. its selling status Only info. I've gleaned is to see that used editions are being sold on your site. Dreams was published in 2015. ( Turning Stone Press) The Church was available last month. ( pub.2017) Altho I've yet to receive any statements I DO need this info for personal files. I NEED TO TALK TO A LIVE REP!

All of your sales should be in your reports where you published.
That would be this site and possibly at CreateSpace.com if you published thru Amazon.
Per you mention above of 'Turning Stone Press', you need to contact them.

First, we are all authors here. No one from Amazon reads these boards.

Second, you created an account today. So if you're looking for stuff published years ago, you need to log in to that account.

Paperbacks would be through Create Space IF you published with them. Kindle would be on your kdp account IF you published directly with KDP and not some other company.

Amazon doesn't send out emails about sales of your books. They never have. Only smashwords does that.

What do you mean, "what customers pay for (your) books?" If you're not the publisher, then ask your publisher. If your publisher has gone belly up--as so many do--or isn't communicative, or you don't trust them, then just turn to the Amazon web page for your books. They're easy to find--I just found them in about 30 seconds. The prices are RIGHT THERE on the webpage. Are you confused, maybe, about the royalties? Is that what you're trying to find out?

There aren't any "live reps" to talk to you. In this environment, typically, YOU are the publisher--not Amazon. That means you are in charge of your own destiny. You upload your books, you set the prices, etc. If you're being published by this "Red Wheel Press" or whatever, and THEY did the uploading, set the pricing, etc., then you have to reach out to them. If they are not providing you with the sort of accounting that you're due, as a contracted author, then that's a different issue. (If that's the case, you may want to seek legal counsel, but again--that problem has NOTHING to do with Amazon.) Amazon provides the technical area, to upload the books, set prices, etc., but they're really just the retailer--the front of the bookstore, in other words. Just like if you made towels or bed linens, and sold them at WalMart; the production side of your bed linens has naught to do with WM.

I hope you get this sorted! Best of luck to you.
