VBT - Writers on the Move - Amazon Discussion

In an effort to get discussions going on different aspects of writing, VBT ~ Writers on the Move will begin individual discussions started on one members blog (on the 10th of each month) for the world to comment on.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson has started up an interesting discussion about Amazon and what their procedures are for book reviews and how it truly hurts writers and reviewers.

Be sure to stop by Sharing With Writers and join in the discussion.

If you haven't heard about this, you will be shocked to learn the details. Be sure to stop by Carolyn's blog and let your voice be heard.

  1. Thanks for following my blog. These kinds of things affect us all. My mother used to say "Never cut off your nose in spite of your face." I know that not using Amazon's power to its fullest would be detrimental to an author's promotion campaign. Having said that, to contribute and then have that time wasted is no way to to spend valuable promotion time.

    I think the answer is to use the features that they might censor guardedly and infrequently but continue to use their sales power to your benefit.

    Best,
