I live on a farm in southwestern Virginia with my family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins -- the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century -- seem to be sticking around for a while yet.

    It's still with my primary editor, so I haven't set a release date yet, but I'm hoping it will be some time in late September/early October. I would love to visit POTL; thanks! :)

    As I mentioned in my post, registration of copyright is only necessary if the book's author or publisher is concerned that someone is going to plagiarize it.

    When I wrote my first novel, my journalism prof told me to send a copy to Washington D.C. to get it registered. This was 1982. Later I heard that wasn't necessary anymore, but I used to put a copyright symbol on all my manuscripts--made it look official. :)

    48-72 hours seems to be the average response period -- as long as it's a price match to something other than free. On the flip side, Amazon will send you a takedown warning if their bots have decided that the price-matching period for your book has gone on long enough (like, on the order of three or four months). This doesn't apply to permafree titles, fortunately.

    I recently changed the price on one of my titles elsewhere and Amazon changed it within 48 hours.
  • Kim Headlee

    It depends, actually, on how recently the Amazon price-checking bots have scanned your title. I've had some books price-matched instantly, which sends me on a hunt to find that one other vendor where I've forgotten to change the price. Other times it takes upwards of a week. Good luck to you and your work! :)

    Thanks for this! I hadn't followed the changes in price-matching very closely. It does take Amazon a LONG time to price-match.
