The free Labour Day sale of Love or Lust isn’t quite going according to plan, it would seem.
Kindle, I expected trouble there; it’s a known and widely discussed thing that they’re difficult to get the price knocked down to free with.
Nook, that was unexpected, but not exactly surprising.
IBooks … in all fairness, it is possible to cut the price to free here. The trouble with this is either a) I’ve finally encountered an Apple product that’s unintuitive or b) the function for setting up the sale is glitched. Regardless, I’ve been unable to mark down the book for the weekend there either.
This weekend Love or Lust will be free from every retail source I can set it for.
Kindle will, if I have anything to say about it, be included butAmazon’s funny about that sort of thing. I can’t actually set the book to free, I have to set it to free elsewhere and then report the lower price or hope that their crawler discovers the price and lowers it automatically.
All others should allow a setting of the price to Free. Exactly how long the price change takes to go through … Well, I’m going to be setting up the prices tonight and this afternoon. That should have the price fixed starting tomorrow (some will be starting at some point today if it processes fast enough) and I will run it through Tuesday — though some might take long enough to process the change that the free price will be in effect through part or even all of Wednesday.
Before anyone gets too excited, this is only the eBook. Print copy is still full price. It going on sale, sadly, is something the individual retailers control, not I.
Happy Labour Day weekend to all my American friends. To the non-Americans … we’re having a holiday here in the states, so you get a book discount, rejoice.
