I published Clever Kindle promo for ‘Oz Chronicles’: Answer Oz question and qualify for contest to win free K machine, at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. At the same time I downloaded the PDF and sent it off to Amazon for free conversion to Kindle format. I didn’t get any response, which was strange as it usually takes only two or three minutes to get the book back. Tried again twice more and still no response. Then I decided to become a big spender and at about 10:30 a.m. submitted it to the “fee” version for conversion and forked over my $0.10. Well it’s now about 11:25 p.m. on Wednesday night and still no response. When I go to my Amazon bookshelf, I see it sitting there and listed as “Pending.” I wonder what’s going on.
Follow up: 9:15am the next morning. Still “pending”
Follow follow up: Posted a comment on the author’s website and he says there is nothing special about the PDF. He’s looking into posting the work in another format.
