This week, instead of continuing my blogging theme discussing my three books in one project, I wanted to comment on what happens sometimes when you search Amazon for an author’s books online. When I search Amazon for “Painted Black Borys” I find two results, one of which is a whopping $19.93 and is sold by some company named Wisper Books (see Images 2 and 3).
In Image 1 next to the $5.20 there are also 28 new and used offers you can click on. These are an assortment of odd sellers offering Painted Black as a new or used book. This often happens to authors. Their book gets listed for odd, sometimes exorbitant, prices from resellers. While many of the companies are legit, you should also be cautious since it is possible you might get more than you bargain for if you try purchasing. This is especially true if they claim you can download the book for free.
The only way you can download any of my books for free is if I or my publisher set up a special sale. If you see an offer too good to be true, check here on my website or my Street Stories site . I will always tell you about special sales. The exception to this is that anyone who subscribes to Kindle Unlimited can download some of my books for free.
See images 2 and 3 as examples of what a non-primary seller’s page might look like.
