The “Earth’s Most Customer-Centric Company” indeed! It is beginning to look like authors will have to pay KirkusIndie Review $425-575 for a review in order to have it posted on Amazon.com. This is a very disturbing notion and one the authors should know about. I need not remind authors that there are hundreds of other sites that will be happy to post reviews that don’t cost an arm and a leg. I encourage everyone to take advantage of these sites for your promotion.
By the way, this is not over. I shall continue to email, phone and contact as many people in Amazon as possible until I get my answer. I now have a number for headquarters in Seattle. That is my next step.
