Thanks for the feedback. From what I read I seemed to understand that price matching was an established process.
Don't sell yourself short. See what the market thinks.

I had published a short work on Amazon a couple years ago with the same thought. I was going to put it out for free, but found I couldn't.
Turns out it's been selling pretty well ever since.

Give it a couple months with some promotion and see how it does. You can always turn to the 'desperate-to-give-it-away' tact later.
