Sue Ann Bowling commented on the blog post 'Is Amazon Good or Bad for Authors? 10 Ratings from the Publisher of She Writes Press'
"Amazon does NOT always follow the lowest price. I managed to get iUniverse (the publisher)  to drop the price of Tourist Trap to $4.99 early in 2013 because I feel this is reasonable for an unknown fiction writer--which I feel should be…"

Hi, Sue Ann --

Kudos to you re: the awards for  'Tourist Trap!' That has to be exciting, not to mention gratifying.

Hey Sue Ann, good seeing you again. Augie

Hi Sue Ann.

What kind of book is Tourist Trap? 

At 5:27pm on February 1, 2012, Deborah Batterman said…

Hi, Sue Ann -- I don't know if this remotely answers your WordPress question, but I'm wondering, when you're asked for your identity to leave a comment, if you need to leave your WordPress user name (i.e., not the name of the blog). Or are you doing that (i.e. and I'm misunderstanding you)? I ran into a similar problem, but for me the reason is that I'm using wordpress.org (so even though I have a WordPress site, I'm not recognized in the .com paradigm). I work around it by using a non-WordPress identity. So much to figure out!
