I came across this article a few months back but I want to share it now because, for the first time in my career, I have noticed that one of my reviews on Amazon (for Renaissance) is missing. Because of how hard it is to get reviews, this is obviously disheartening. I have never bought a review or forced anyone to leave a review and none of my reviews are from family members and the like. To my knowledge, I have followed all of Amazon’s rules for book reviews so to have one missing is weird to me. I have set a personal goal (that I haven’t mentioned before except for now) of reaching at least 20 Amazon reviews for Renaissance before releasing book two. I was at 19 and now I am at 18. My only hope is that those who bought books at the signing will also leave reviews. Just in case, I have disconnected my blog feed on Amazon. My Goodreads page is also not connected to Amazon. Check out the article below for more tips on how to decrease the chances of your reviews being removed.
Yesterday, Love Unscripted had 1145 reviews.
Today, Love Unscripted had 1144 reviews.
This is not the first time reviews have disappeared. Several weeks ago, the number of reviews on all my novels were much higher.
And then, overnight, something mysterious happened. Poof, about 75 reviews disappeared into the nether.
So what’s causing some reviews to disappear while others remain untouched?
