Alana Woods: Readers and reviewers beware!

Posted by Alana Woods on March 13, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Do you write reviews on your Kindle immediately after finishing a book?

Do you check that they have actually been posted?

The reason I'm asking is because I became aware of a rating and review for one of my novels that didn't make it from a reader's Kindle to Amazon. And as we authors really appreciate the reviews we receive it concerned me.

I queried it with Amazon, wondering if the links were broken but they checked and no, the links were fine.

The only answer they could proffer was that it had not passed the filters for either inappropriate language or spoilers.

I know the whole purpose of being able to rate and review on your Kindle is to sidestep the necessity of logging on to Amazon. But may I make a request: The next time you are on the Amazon site would you check to see if all of your reviews appear.

We authors will be eternally grateful.

Hi Claude, no it's not something I do either. It was actually a friend who alerted me to it, saying she had written a review for one of my books. I kept checking and it didn't show up on the Amazon site so I queried them.

Thanks for the warning, very useful! I never knew this could happen, but then writing a review on a Kindle is not something I like to do (the board is too small). But it's good to know that there are pitfalls...
