Is free possible

I have a short story book series I want to make free only to Nook readers. I was hoping to do so with this first book, but I couldn't identify a manner in which to make that possible.

Re: Is free possible

You have to use Smashwords. You can opt out of every place except B&N. You can set the book for free there. If you are going to use it, register and download the PDF on formatting. I simplified it for my book because I just uploaded there to have my book put on other ereaders. At B&N, you have to set a price.

Re: Is free possible

Thank you both. I'm trying to change my title on my pubit side so I can pull it, but it's still process, likely b/c I've got it posted to smash free :smileysad: Does anyone have another idea how to deal w/ this?

Doesn't amazon still do price matching?  If they see that your book is going free here they may make it free on amazon too.

In Smashwords, you can opt out. A book can be put on B&N only.

LesaFuchsCarter: Yes. They most likely would. It's all automatic.

I didn't know if you were pubbing the book only at B&N. If you are also going to put it on Amazon, then SF50 steered you in the right direction.

Does B&N also do automatic price-match of Smashwords or do you have to e-mail them and tell them it is free on Smashwords. How long will it take them to price-match and make it free?

No, BN does not price match. If you want free on BN, you need to go through Smashwords and have them distribute to BN for you
