Just wanted to mention a few things about how amazon.com should not allow books that have been retired, either by lulu.com, tatepublishing.com, or by createspace.com and so on to remain on their for sale list. It seems that, instead of just taking the listing off of their website actually retiring the title never really happens. Even after a title has been retired for over eight weeks.
Anyone else a V.I.P on free-ebooks.net? They seem to have canceled memberships somehow. Even though I was paid up as a V.I.P for life. Supposedly anyway. Just curious to see if this has been the case with anyone else from that site. My publishing there are now inaccessible to me. Imagine that.
I also had to change the title of my book, "The Mighty Companion" after a religious zealot hijacked it and formed a monastery? Go figure? So, now its, "Journey Through Destiny". Sort of a last ditch effort to finish my novel once and for all. The hardcover sold here on lulu.com still has its original title as, "The Time Walkers".
Thus, the need to have retired books removed from amazon.com listings. What a pain that's turned out to be. Same book. Three titles. What a mess...Although the story is nice, trying to make since out of the amazon.com sales page is next to impossible. All the titles from tatepublishing.com have been retired also, but still they remain for sale on amazon.com.
In my opinion, the copyright belongs to me. I should say who and what is listed on my sales page. Besides, I don't receive any royalties for all of the books listed there that have been retired. So how can they still be listed as available? I mean, supposedly without any sales the book should be removed once retired. Right?
Used copies are supposedly still circulating but without any royalties to speak of I smell a rat. So, I ask myself?
