Why Amazon is deleting book reviews: understanding Amazon's new review policy and how to get bck deleted reviews - CreativINDIE

Panzer took a short trip into the Catosphere today. He has been hearing a lot about Amazon's new "product" review policy. That's the one he told you about earlier this week that bans free products for reviews. Our traveling kitty pilot stopped in at the CreativINDIE site today to check out Derek Murphy's new post about Amazon's policy

Just do it.
According to Derek Murphy's post, although Amazon denied the policy would apply to books, some authors have seen their ebook/book reviews deleted because of the policy. It appears because the reviewers were told to use the wording, they were given a "free book in exchange for a review" those reviews were deleted. Amazon determined the reviewers were given an incentive for the review. The post includes an example of wording which should pass the new Amazon review policy test, as well as a suggestion of how to get the deleted reviews back.

Panzer says, "It's Amazon's house, so you have to play by their house rules ... Even when the house rules change."

Note: This is a short-long post. Bring a cup of cocoa and one-and-a-half muffins for today's reading selection.
