For anyone who's interested in getting the new Three Daves cover on Kindle...stay tuned. It appears big, giant, "cutting edge" Amazon has trouble with the simple things, like changing a book cover. Grrrrr. I'll report here once it's up.
Be warned authors, for all it's market dominance, Amazon's not the speediest rabbit in the hutch. Here's the miffed message I just sent them (with zero expectation of getting any sort of response at all from the behemoth):
I don't personally have a seller account with you, but my publisher does. I'm contacting you regarding an issue with my book for sale on Amazon - Three Daves by Nicki Elson. The book got a new cover as of September 1, and my publisher submitted the new cover art to Amazon first thing Thursday morning, yet the old cover is STILL showing. I could understand it taking 24 hours to get your act together (no, actually I can't---you're a HUGE on-line company & should be able to handle a simple cover change in a matter of minutes) but we're getting into the ridiculous stage now.
Barnes and Noble was perfectly accommodating with my Nook sale/cover reveal so what's your deal, Amazon? Is it wrong for a customer to expect a little responsiveness and support in exchange for your cut?
