Help make a book permafree... and then get it for free!

Giving away Book 1 for free has always worked well for the Island of Fog series, and now I want to make that happen for the Sleep Writer series.
Now that the third book, Caleb's World, is published, I've set the price of the first book, Sleep Writer, to $0.00 on Apple and Kobo. Unfortunately, authors can't do that at Amazon or Barnes & Noble because there's a $2.99 minimum price. However, Amazon will often price-match if they're informed of a cheaper deal elsewhere.
So here's where I need your help. If you get a moment, go to the Sleep Writer product page:
Scroll down to where it shows the Product Details. Under that section it says:
Would you like to give feedback on images or tell us about a lower price?
Click on "tell us about a lower price" and a small window will open. In that window, all you need to do is select "Website (Online)" and then enter one of the following URLs to indicate where you found the book at a cheaper price:
- Apple: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id919265579
- Kobo: http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/sleep-writer-unearthly-tales-1
Enter $0.00 for both price and shipping cost, then hit "Submit Feedback" and you're done.
If enough readers shout about a cheaper deal elsewhere, Amazon will (hopefully) reduce the price of Sleep Writer to $0.00 for Kindle, where it will remain permafree forever.
And then YOU can download it for free.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Thought I would help in this crusade. Although, since I have already read the first one, does that get me a Calebs World free. Haha. Look forward to reading it. Sure it's just as good as the first two.
Done! I hope it helps! I know getting the first of Island of Fog got us into that series. Good luck!
Thanks to all of you so far!
Sadly, I don't have an Amazon account, so I can't do this. But I hope that enough people see this and do it if they can. Good luck!
Hey, it worked! Sleep Writer is now FREE! Thanks to all those who alerted Amazon. :-)
Get it now!
(But be sure to check the price before you download it; it's now free on Amazon US, Kobo, and Apple, but not yet free on Amazon UK, and will never be free on Nook because Barnes & Noble doesn't price-match anything.)
I filled out the price match yesterday, and got the book free today. Thanks Keith!!!
I don't know when it happened but sleep writer is free on amazon UK now also.
I saw that! It was a few days ago at least. I'm glad things have equalized. :-)
