Did I Make Amazon Mad?

Haven’t had problems, yet, but . . .

casandersdotnet

I have no clue what I did, but over the past two weeks Amazon has removed several of the reviews for The Watchmage of Old New York, and blocked at least five (people have told me that their reviews were blocked). I’m now down to 18 reviews, and who knows how far it will fall.

I don’t understand what I did wrong. I’ve never broken the terms and conditions or tried anything shady. Hell, I don’t even let my family leave reviews for fear of breaking terms. I guess i’m just unlucky.

They also removed several reviews that I’ve left on products and books. I think that this is kinda funny, but funny sad. They send me emails asking for reviews on this and that product, but it’s those reviews that get removed.

This is part of a new policy by Amazon, and one that I agree with

EVERYBODY’S GOT TO GO THRU A STORM

Be still and listen for that small voice . . .

Watch Nonnie Write!

Do you ever feel like nothing’s going right in your world?  Ever have the feeling you’re rowing a big boat all on your own, with only one oar, and it’s the left one, and you’re right-handed?  Well, tonight, as I sit trying to find words to finish a chapter in my next book, those are my feelings. And although I’m not at all comfortable in these feelings, I know that we all must go thru them.  I call them STORMS.  Why?  Because they’re sometimes very rocky, turbulent, causing you to feel as if you’re being tossed about on a great big ocean, with high winds and heavy rains.  A storm.

Earlier I did feel something brewing.  It was the calm before the storm.   I can recall sitting on my back porch (which is something I never do…so that should have been a sign), pen and paper in my lap, staring…

Blog Tour – All Mad Here by Brantwijn Serrah

The Book Mistress

100_1651When she isn’t visiting the worlds of immortals, demons, dragons and goblins, Brantwijn fills her time with artistic endeavors: sketching, painting, customizing My Little Ponies and sewing plushies for friends. She can’t handle coffee unless there’s enough cream and sugar to make it a milkshake, but try and sweeten her tea and she will never forgive you. She moonlights as a futon for four lazy cats, loves tabletop role-play games, and can spend hours pencilling naughty, sexy illustrations in her secret notebooks.

Brantwijn has two romance series currently in-progress with Champagne Books.  She’s also had short stories published in several small press anthologies. She has author pages on GoodReads and Amazon, and loves to see reader comments on her work. Her short stories and audio readings occasionally pop up at Foreplay and Fangs, her blog at http://brantwijn.blogspot.com.

News flash: A Plagiarist is a “Kindle All-Star”

Wow! Can you say audacity? I cannot believe anyone would go to this length and plagiarize books to this extent, and face NO CONSEQUENCES!

Brad Vance Author

So here’s a depressing story. “Novelist” Joanne Clancy made enough syntactical changes to several out of print novels by Ingrid Black to pass them off as her own. As always, it was only because a keen-eyed reader called out Clancy as a plagiarist that it came to light.

As Eilish O’Hanlon (one half of the duo who wrote as Ingrid Black) dug around, she discovered this:

There was one burning question: Who was Joanne Clancy? All we knew about her is that she claimed to be from Cork, and had published 26 works in various genres from erotica to romance to crime, many featuring a recurring character who went by the name of Detective George Ellis.

Traceless . . . Killing Time . . . If You Tell Anyone . . . Open Your Eyes . . . Before I’m Gone – her production rate was almost industrial.

She was…

Alpha Framed, The Adventure Continues #BookLaunch

I’m looking forward to getting this enitre series!

Love's Last Refuge

113249490_d1

Coy Carruthers has a problem, a big one. Against everyone’s wishes, he’s created a sanctuary for the broken and abused, the wounded and damaged almost beyond repair, giving them hope and a safe place to live out their lives. That’s made him and the men he cares about targets in a deadly game of power and corruption.

Being alpha was a burden Coy never asked for or wanted, and when he throws off the yoke of leadership it creates a vacuum that threatens all he holds dear.

Coy’s about to find out that defying the power brokers comes with a cost, a cost that could very well break him in two.

Some of you might not like what I’m about to say in this blog, but you know what I say to that?  Too bad, get over it and if the shoe fits, then you wear it. (If the shoe doesn’t fit, then sit back, prop your feet up and enjoy the refreshments).

During our  BACK TO SCHOOL BOOK & BLOG BLOCK PARTY last September, and THE HOLIDAY TRAIN “BOOK TRAILER” BLOCK PARTY which was last December, every day tons of prizes were given away and all you had to do for a chance at winning, was to stop by a blog and leave a comment.  During that time, you all showed up in droves.  Many of you, every day, I might add!
