I’ve just about given up on Amazon offering the updated content for my novel, The Valley Walker. I’ve had online chats with them and emailed their KDP Help people, but the updated content still isn’t being offered. I must be doing something wrong.

There is a way to get around this problem, while the book is still free.

I found out that if I go to Amazon’s Manage Your Content and Devices page and delete the book from my device, I can then purchase the new content… for free. But hold on now. It takes a while for the deletion to actually take place. It’s not instantaneous. The request is put in a queue, and the server gets to it in its own sweet time.

Luckily, there is still ample time left in the Free Promotion. Delete the book, go get some coffee, live life and come back to it in your own sweet time. Buy the book for fee and carry on.

If you don’t want to do this, or can’t get the updated content let me know. (The updated content has a dedication that will actually show up in the table of contents.) I’ll be happy to email you a copy.

You can load the file onto your device through the USB port, or email it to your Kindle’s email address. Go back to your Manage Your Content and Devices  page, then download it to your device. It will show up in the Docs section, not in the Books section, of your device.

I know, this is a hell of a lot of trouble to go through to get a book, (And it’s just a book), but as a great man once said:

“It’s only rock and roll, but I like it.”
