(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

The book, Extravagant Easter Eggs was suppose to be completely free on Amazon but when I clicked on Amazon and went there the book was $7+!

Indeed, the book is not free.

Hi,
I check the books that are posted for the daily giveaway regularly and try to read them as much as possible. And at times if I am not able to sit through them, then I hoard them on my Kindle so that I can get back to them wherever I want.
But with today's BOTD, both Amazon and Kindle apps are showing the prompt 'Title not available for purchase'. Can someone please help me with this?
TIA!
Books may well be the only true magic.

Oh, okay. But, doesn't it usually have a free sample or a first chapter link? How can I enter for the giveaway without checking the book? I mean, is that allowed? If so, how does it work?

It does have a free sample, and it is available for purchase. The issue must be on your end, as I can access the sample.

If you can't access it, try to change device or browser.

Thanks! I tried with another browser and the link worked!
