Update: Some of you may have been following my frustrated attempts to have my novella, The Child Thief, free on Amazon. So far it's been listed in the free store twice and twice moved back to the paid store.
I emailed with Kindle Direct Publishing and received the following reply:
Hello Melissa, I understand that you want to offer your eBook for free permanently. In this case you can offer it for free by enrolling it to our KDP Select program. You can offer any book enrolled in KDP Select free to readers for up to 5 days at your discretion during each 90-day KDP Select term. You can pick the days when you want to run your free promotions, choosing to go one day at a time or offering your book free for multiple days in a row. <<trimmed for brevity>> I hope this helps! Thanks for using Amazon KDP. Regards, Steve R.

That seems to be Amazon's final word on the subject. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience this causes anyone.
However, The Child Thief remains free at B&N, All Romance ebooks, Smashwords and on Goodreads. If anyone would like a Kindle version of the story, then leave a comment and I'll email you the .MOBI version.

Valkyrie Victoria Storm has werewolf hunters hell bent on revenge trying to kill her. She can barely keep her own downtrodden pack alive, let alone respond to the pleas of a murdered mother.
