How to make sure your book is the right price on the day of your promotion

Below, we will show you the couple of ways to change your book’s price through Amazon’s KDP dashboard. More details on how to change your price on other retailers can be found here. We do not change the price of your title. You must do this yourself.

Changing Your Book’s Price
