A little while ago, several cases of my books were being shipped to Amazon by the US postal service but those cases went missing. The USPS claims to have never found them despite being well labeled and indeed having an Amazon packing list inside the box.
Fast forward to now and those books are showing up on Amazon and eBay. But all is not well! It seems they were sold by the USPS to scavengers who have put them up for sale. I’d thought that this would be no problem, but it appears that Amazon does not like it when others sell books below their wholesale price, so they’re penalizing my book and selling it at list price – but nobody pays retail prices for books.
So, rather than let the scoundrels profit, I’m letting readers profit. I’m selling the book myself as an Amazon Seller for $19.50 until the scavenged inventory makes its way through the system. So grab yourself an extra one and tell your friends since I’m not sure how long this will last.
