Midweek Report

Just a quick update - I was looking at my KDP reports and realized that the copy of Finally Home that sold last week has been returned for a refund - that hurts, especially when no review was made on amazon and there is no reason showing for the refund. This means the person had the book for less than 72 hours as I believe you only have limited to return a book for a refund, it could be up to a week but I don't remember since it's been a while since I actually purchased anything on amazon. Oh well, guess they didn't read the book or didn't like it - such is life. Maybe more sales will show up to offset the loss of those royalties, not that it would have been that much. See you all in the postings - E :)

Is it possible that the return was due to something else on Amazon's end? I know I tried to buy a book one time and it didn't download, so I wanted a refund. But eventually, the book did download, but it took a while. That's always another possibility - something else happening. Anyway, hang in there!

Anything is possible but considering they had the book just the length of time in order to get a refund seems more likely that someone purchased it, read it and returned it - it happens all the time at bookstores too. I'm trying to be positive about it all but it is disheartening when people do things like that. In your case, you had a valid reason for getting a refund, and since I don't see the reasons for folks getting refunds, I'll never know why it was returned.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving encouragement my way - E :)

So sorry to hear that. Try not to let it get you down.

Thanks, Susanne. I'm hoping the next two events coming up will be big hits. I'd especially like to sell some afghans. I'll keep my head up and not let it bother me - lol. E :)
