The Kindle store ad for this Ebook lists it at $9.99. Amazon lists it @ $3.99.
The price was changed several weeks ago to $3.99
My repeated messages on this issue get the immediate response "---should expect a reply in 24 hrs". But nothing happens; no reply and no price resolution. Please say something so that I can move on.

Have you tried going back into your Bookshelf and changing it again? If not, you might want to give that a try.

I must be losing my mind or need new glasses. When I first searched for your book, the KINDLE version shows up as $9.99. I clicked on the Paperback and when I went back to the kindle, it updated the price to $3.99.

Do a search again to see if they finally updated the price. Otherwise click on Contact Us below and be concise and specific about your problem.

Oh, that is bizarre. You're right. It first shows as $9.99, but when you click on the paperback link, it then shows the ebook as $3.99. And if you click on the ebook from that page, it still says $3.99.

Definitely some kind of glitch. Very weird.

The problem seems to be that there are two separate copies of the Kindle ebook, one published on June 16, 2016 and priced at $9.99 and and one published on September 13, 2016 and priced at $3.99. Both have the same ISBN, but they have different ASINs: B01H35AO9G and B01LWJATXY. I wonder if the author might have made some updates and then republished the book instead of uploading the updated file over the existing file.

Thank you. It's a skill I owe to twenty-plus years of working in a public library. Finding the information people needed was a big part of my job.
