Will lowering the paperback and Kindle price change things? Three weeks ago began the process of lowering the price. It may take another three weeks before we see it on Amazon.
Lowering the list price from $19.99 to 10.99 has been approved. Amazon then uses an algorithm to create a standard discount.
Still waiting on the Kindle price reduction from $9.99 to somewhere between $1.99 and $3.99. Amazon also discounts Kindle prices.
Nothing venture, nothing gained.
