A little while back I lowered my price from $2.99 to $.99 to garner sales. The price change was suppose to be temporary, but I'm concerned I might lose my reviews and sales ranking in the process. If I press,'save and publish' would I be fine? I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks

Thanks, notjohn. I thought so, but I needed some assurance.

I changed the price. Bumped it up to $1.99,gave it two days and don't understand what is going on.

Is this a marketing thing? Or is my price stuck here?

The thing is I went KDP Select over a month ago and had to remove my novel from other retailers. I hope smashwords didn't miss one. I still see my novel with Sony, but they do not have a price on the book.

It is $1.99 at Amazon US. Are you looking from within the US?
