I'm Still Waiting...on Amazon!

Today is the day Aaron's Annulment Bride should have been raised to the regular price of $1.99. In order to meet the agreement made by the authors of the Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs series, I will finish this blog post and then make the change--which will become effective within a matter of a few hours.

Once again, I am so, so sorry I messed up so bad. I sincerely apologize to those readers who purchased my book on preorder and got caught in my mistake. If you are not aware of the idiotic mess-up I pulled, you can read about it by CLICKING HERE. I guess that proves I can write about characters with their weaknesses and mistakes because I have experience.

I also bought a copy of my own book before I was able to get the corrected version uploaded and active (at 1:24pm PDT on 6/20)--you know, the version with ALL the chapters and the version that had been edited to correct (hopefully) ALL errors. I marked it as Version 2, which is supposed to signal Amazon that it had substantial changes. 

That said, now that I uploaded the corrected version along with designating it as having had substantial changes, I sure wish Amazon was faster about sending out those emails notifying my readers of the same.

I know in the past, I have received emails stating that an author's book has had substantial changes and then given me instructions on how to upload the current version. Since I know I have gone into a book on my Amazon account and used a link to upload the most current version, that is why I previously gave the instructions I did. I was hoping that would have happened with my book by now. Unfortunately....I'm still waiting.

Hmmm.... The good folks at Amazon and I must not think alike.

If you were one of my loyal readers who got caught in that preorder snafu of mine, I want to make it right by you. Please send your email address to me at zinaabbott AT gmail DOT com. You may also find the link to my email on the About Us page on my website. Please send me your Amazon order number and the date of purchase, and I will send a replacement copy of the book to you along with instructions on the easiest way to get it on your Kindle.

If you downloaded a copy of the book using Kindle Unlimited, the version you received should have been updated. No action on your part should be necessary.

Here is how to find your Amazon order number and purchase date for Aaron's Annulment Bride.

1.  Go into Manage Your Content and Devices on your Amazon account.

2.  Click on the second box (menu box) just to the left of the book title.

 3. Here is where you will find the menu of options for the book. If Amazon gave us a link to update to the most current version of the book, it would be here. Since it isn't as of yet, please click on the link for Order Details.

4.  Here you will find the Order Number, Date and Price of your purchase. Please send that information to me. Perhaps the easiest way if you do this on your computer is to use your "snipit" tool to create a jpg image, and insert that in your email.

When I receive your email, I will get you the updated copy of the book without you and I having to wait for Amazon to send out the email notifying us of the substantial updates.

Once again, I apologize to all who bought my book on preorder and ended up with an incomplete copy. Live and learn .... Boy, has this been a lesson to not only keep an eye on the calendar, but also on the clock.
