“Central Outbreak Response: Genesis” is sale priced at $0.99 from 1/24/14 – 1/30/14 for Amazon.com customers only.
Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.ca, Amazon.com.au and other marketplaces will have the normal prices, roughly equivalent to $2.99 USD. This is due to a problem with getting the Kindle Countdown deal to work with those other marketplaces. I won’t bore you with details, but it involved a currency exchange rate calculation (handled automatically by Amazon) running afoul of Amazon’s own minimum price for a Countdown.
To rectify the problem, I attempted to manually reduce the price, accepting a 35% royalty for those sales instead of the 70% royalty – only to find Amazon won’t allow me to do that for only certain markets. Nor can I do it for all markets, as I am within 24 hours of the previously scheduled Amazon.com Countdown deal. I am out of options to fix the problem with Amazon.
If you wish to purchase “COR: Genesis” at the $0.99 equivalent price, and you live in a marketplace outside of the Amazon.com sphere, please send me your email address via this website’s Contact page. I will schedule a price drop in the future (probably in late February or early March), and send you an email notifying you when that occurs for your marketplace.
I apologize to readers in the affected Amazon marketplaces. It was my intention to lower the price across the board for this time period.
Thank you for your understanding.
