Amazon versus the Noblebright collection

Did you preorder the Noblebright collection through Amazon? Due to Amazon’s right hand not knowing what its left is doing, the collection got delisted, and all the preorders were cancelled. Amazon accepted that it was its fault and has indicated it would send a letter to people who had preordered, but who knows when that will actually happen? Now the collection is back up, so if you did preorder and your order was canceled, you can reorder here

If you preordered through another site (Kobo, Apple, Barnes & Noble), you’re fine!

I never really trusted Amazon.

Yeah, it's practically a monopoly, so like a honey badger, it does what it wants.

An aside: we have a kingfisher at the wildlife center and I posted a picture.

Oh--excellent (I mean, not that the kingfisher was injured, but)--I'll come take a look.

She's doing well, considering we don't see a lot of kingfishers.

That's very irksome, and another reason to despise Amazon. :(

I have preordered. Is it really only $0.99 for the whole set? There's no additional fee when it becomes available? It seems amazing to be able to get this set for that price.

Oh, wait! Dang, I preordered through Kobo. How silly, now I'll get two sets. Hmm. Wonder how that works with eBooks. With physical books, I'd have a marvelous gift for a friend.

I'm glad your original preorder was through Kobo!

Oh I'm sure you can cancel that second preorder! Or yeah, maybe give it to a friend? I believe you will get it for the preorder price: Amazon might decide if the file is not small enough that it has to be sold for $1.99 instead of 99 cents, but it will honor the preorder price (in other words, people who buy it when it goes live may have to pay $1.99 if the file can't be compressed enough), but everyone who preorders gets it for 99 cents. If that's not the case, it would be false advertising, and I'd be very upset!
