I'm trying to get my novel Another Man's Poison out there
for people to read (because no-one can read it if it's just hidden on my hard drive), and because I think the cost of Print On Demand would be too high for someone to take a risk on a novel by an unknown author I've decided to make it available as an eBook. So I put it on Smashwords
Then a friend told me that I could sell it on the Amazon Kindle Store as well, so I did
...but when I set the price at $2.49, Amazon bumped it up to $5.28 for readers outside the US.
Why is this? It's just an electronic file that is transmitted across the same internet as it would be in the US. Can anyone tell me why it should be more expensive to download a file outside the US than it is inside...?
