Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 193 comments I have no clue how to fix this issue. The buy link leads to the free preview chapters of this book, resulting in a display price of $0.00 instead of the correct price of $9.99.

I looked at the editions and all of the title were together. I separated the preview chapters file but don't know how to fix the buying link to match to correct listing.

Hi Hannah,

I see what you try to explain. When using the Amazon button on the Goodreads page of your paperback edition, the corresponding paperback page on Amazon.com has a linked Kindle edition - a preview priced at $0.00. As Scott says, when chosing your Kindle edition on Goodreads, the link leads to a fully priced Amazon Kindle page.

Here's where you and Goodreads members chose editions of your book:

Goodreads Librarians are volunteers, not employees so I recommend you to contact either Goodreads support or Amazon support to solve why your Kindle preview is linked to your paperback edition on Amazon.com.

Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 193 comments Hey, annob! Thanks. I'm not the author...I'm a buyer who accidentally bought the wrong thing through the link and had to go through hoops online to delete the incomplete and unwanted file...

So are you saying the error is on Amazon?

lethe | 13571 comments Could this be related to the get-a-copy issues mentioned in the Feedback Group?

It seems it is.

The Kindle edition has a separate page on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07...

The other page on Amazon connects the paperback, Library Binding and the Kindle preview edition: https://www.amazon.com/Shadow-among-S...

So it looks like the regular Kindle edition and the Kindle preview edition are switched on Amazon.
