FYI…this is long. This was written in word first and it was nine pages long. However, six pages were nothing but lists of the books we’ve confirmed to be recycled. I did remove the names and titles for purposes of this letter, as we’ve found more names and digging deeper into this mess. I’ve removed other information, too. Some of this I’m still working on, so will update as possible.
J. emailed me back while I was working on formatting her chat with Amazon and told me she’d written an essay, her first in the “Hot Takes: Reader J follows up with a reader’s perspective”
So, something that a lot of people are overlooking in this mess of scammers are readers. No, I’m not saying this to curry favor with “Hot Takes: Looking at how this affects readers”
Writers, we have a problem. Doesn’t matter if you’re writing about slaying zombies, speeding through space, chasing down rogue CIA agents gone bad, killer clowns “The next hot take… an open letter to Jeff Bezos”
So amazon has taken it upon themselves to de-list (making it to where they don’t show up in the typical search)a number of authors based “Amazon Fail”
