Amazonian tactics

I had been talking about my book 'START to Stress Less' with a friend the other day, and yesterday, for some strange reason, I was drawn to looking it up on Amazon. Imagine the shock when I saw that they were selling for the following eye-watering prices: £100.08 new and £96.12 used.

I think this is an Amazon punishment for my not dropping the price from it's original £4.95 to so cheap that I would be paying people to buy my book, and now they've made it these prices so people absolutely wouldn't buy it.

Is there a way of changing the prices they've quoted? I don't think so. It doesn't seem fair at all, but there's nothing I can do so I'll just have to sit and take it.


  1. I've often wondered how they arrive at those prices. In some obscure fashion, I assumed it was to do with sourcing a hard to find book.

    Have you tried contacting them?

  2. If only it were that simple Karen!
