I am going to write a book and I know people who have. I want us all to support each other. Amazon should not be allowed to discriminate on any review or comments. It's controlling and counterproductive to good sales and word of mouth.

I believe this policy is completely unfair to independent authors who rely on their larger network of friends, family and fans to get the word out on their published works.

I do not think it is fair that if I know an author I cannot leave a review

When an independent author does not have a big corporation to back them, their only asset is a network of people they know, word of mouth and leveraging our relationships is important to help maximize our reach and share our gifts in the world.

Authors work hard to develop relationships with their readers and shouldn't pay for that in having reviews removed from those that became friends. There needs to be transparency in why reviews are removed. Authors are also readers and reviewers.

Just because you like a Author doesn't have anything to do with the book you are reviewing. I have left bad reviews for books but I adore the Author.
