AMAZON SUCKS- How to leave a review – preferably at Barnes and Noble or Goodreads.

I really want this to appear on my author feed on Amazon as AMAZON SUCKS. Because their review policies SUCK. I had legitimate reviews that were up for almost a year – good fricken reviews – pulled, because, well…

AMAZON SUCKS

That said, that AMAZON SUCKS

Here is how to leave a review on Good Reads and Barnes and Noble. You can try to leave one on Amazon too, BUT THEY SUCK!

Amazon (which SUCKS!)
Go to Amazon and search by author name. Seems better than title

Original link: (example my book)

https://www.amazon.com/Third-Step-William-Lobb/dp/1619844826/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500748144&sr=8-1&keywords=william+lobb

remove the junk after “1619844826/”

Use this: (example my book)

https://www.amazon.com/Third-Step-William-Lobb/dp/1619844826/

Notify the author the day or next after you post. Reviews are VERY important. If I do not see it within 3-5 days I need to call Amazon and complain. This last step is useless, because, wait for it…

AMAZION SUCKS

Barnes and Noble – a company that  actually supports authors though local events, reading and signings can and will get you the same exact content, except they don’t SUCK like AMAZON. (have I mentioned that AMAZON SUCKS?)

Fairly simple. You do need an account. You don’t need to have purchased the book there.

Click on post a review – in my case, be the first to write a review –
You do need an account – you don’t need a credit care. Account info is name, email, etc. very simple. You have 3500 characters allowed for a review.

Good Reads:
Again, you need an account.
Search for book
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32445474-the-third-step?ac=1&from_search=true
under the image, you’ll see stars. Select the number of stars – that will cause a pop-up “write a review”
it’s that simple, write the review and save it.

    1. Yes, I do. Goodreads review policy is much more flexible and liberal. By the way, what exactly doesn’t amazon own?

      They are the borg. I hate dealing with them.

      Thanks for commenting.

  1. I agree with you about Amazon. They did the same thing to me with the reviews. When I questioned them about what their due diligence process was for removing reviews, they told me they could do whatever they wanted. In addition, I learned that all of my books had been pirated and were being sold as “free downloads” on different sites. I’m sure this was the result of “lending” or sharing books through Amazon’s many freebee programs. At that point, I removed ALL OF MY BOOKS FROM AMAZON.

    Another author told me she’s not getting her royalties from sales that she has verified.

    In reality, Amazon has enslaved HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of authors through their so called promotional programs like giving your book away for free.

    SHAME ON YOU, AMAZON!

    1. I agree with you. at this point I don’t know what to do. Barnes and Noble are much better at author promotion, they do a lot for the local author community here in the hudson valley. Sadly, B&N will be swallowed soon by Amazon too, at least that is my guess…
