The thread about Goodreads has flowed over to comments about their corporate owners Amazon. In that thread I mentioned a book I had with Amazon via Lulu where Amazon insisted in dropping the price on their site without any discussion with me or why. It took weeks to get an answer: The Amazon policy was they have set price levels and they reduced the price by $0.96 to the next one below because I set a price that was $0.04 below the next one up. They didn't give me a chance to change the price. And they now list it as being available for another dollar below that. My original price set was US$5.95, first Amazon price set at US$4.99, current listing is US$3.99. Great an honest company, right!!
Well, I just went to Lulu and removed Amazon from the list of approved sites for the sale of that book because they now have it at US$3.99 without speaking to me about it. Oddly enough, when you follow the link from that page to the page they claim is my author page (I never created one with them) they only list Rough Diamond Kindle edition (the one I just pulled) and Star Performance print book edition (never approved for sale via Amazon), but not the four free books I have via them as e-pubs.
The agreement with Lulu says it can take up to 8 weeks for Amazon to pull the book. Since they still show a two year old book I never let them have, I wonder if they'll ever pull Rough Diamond and will now just wait and see what happens.
BTW: I've no records of any sales of the pay for book at all through Amazon, but plenty of the zero price ones.
