I recently had a review removed from my latest book, The Ghost of Blakeley Past. http://amzn.to/1ji9HE9 I am not sure why it was removed, and Amazon’s explanation was very vague and generic. This problem seems to be happening more and more with Amazon and has become a troubling issue for many authors. In view of the current trend of events regarding book reviews, I wanted to post information from a variety of sources. I am not stating an opinion either way, but simply relaying information. You be the judge!
Below are several websites that discuss the issue of Amazon deleting book reviews.
