What’s Up With That Price-Match???


I’ve been trying for some time to get Dreams Both Real and Strange I posted as FREE on Amazon.

Unfortunately, Amazon, engaged in their downward spiraling tred of doom, is not being quite as helpful as they once were.

While both Barnes and Noble and Kobo have complied with my request to make Dreams Both Real and Strange I Free, Amazon still has not.

In fact, when I sent an email to the KDP dept., this was the letter I received in response:

My book Dreams Both Real and Strange ASIN: B0068YY3EG is available for free on Barnes and Nobles here: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dreams-both-real-and-strange-kw-mccabe/1107874091?ean=2940032877684
I would like the price to be changed to free both here and on the amazon.co.uk site as well please.




Ah well, Amazon. The love I once had for you has diminished, me thinks….
