How to publish a FREE ebook on Amazon Kindle. (Amazon calls this "Price Match" and they hate it. They would rather make money off you by having you enroll your book in KDP Select, so that readers have to buy a $9.99/mo subscription to Kindle Unlimited in order to read your book for free, while you collect bupkes in royalties. Nice scam.)
