[quote=""DanielAWillis""]I am self-published too and have been through this.

When Amazon has sold one of books in a sale, they have eaten the price difference. I still got the same amount.

I suppose they consider it a marketing expense becuase it encourages shoppers to buy from them rather than a competitor.[/quote]

That's interesting. My book price was reduced recently (without me knowing) and I was a bit miffed thinking my take would be reduced even more.
If I still get the same amount then I can live with that (not that there's any choice).

They have dropped some of my books as well, but like everyone else, I still get the same payment. If they are trying to generate more sales, I don't mind this one bit.
