I am doing my part in reblogging this to spread the word around. I hope the author gets this all worked out and it is just the result of some sort of miscommunication somewhere along the line. Otherwise, this is very, very bad news.
The answer just might be yes because this is exactly what is happening to Jamie McGuire. Jamie originally self-published her book Beautiful Disaster and the sales were so good that a publisher wanted the book. So now the book is with a publisher. Cool, right? You’d think so except for this thorn that cropped up. Amazon is sending out mass emails to people who bought Beautiful Disaster when it was self-published. Amazon is offering a full refund for the $3.99 price it was when it was self-published PLUS the difference in price that the publisher is charging ($7.99). And Jamie McGuire is the one paying the bill. So Jamie is now paying every customer who wants a refund about $8. Amazon’s not paying it. She’s made it clear the publisher isn’t behind this.
