Reviews, do yours get removed from Amazon?

heart swans

 

Being most of my book sales occur in person instead of online, I have found it next to impossible to have posted reviews accepted by Amazon. Instead, the reviews are posted by my readers and then within a day or two Amazon takes them down. This has happened on numerous occasions since publishing with Create Space.
All and all I have been happy with Amazon as a customer. They run a great retail outfit that delivers good products. Their shipping is first rate. It is as an author that I have had less than stellar results regarding this issue of denying reviews. This has become a point of friction that Amazon is unwilling to acknowledge any flexibility.
In order to sidestep this issue, the last Amazon Representative suggested I publish to Kindle and do book give aways which result in “verified purchasers” and thus the reviews will remain posted. I see nothing wrong with this avenue except: what motivation does the reader have to post a review?
Any suggestions as to navigating this conundrum would be appreciated. In the mean time I have sponsored a free book give away for Oct 21 and 22.   All of my books are at this link: http://amzn.to/2yEAVUu

Rhyme Your Way into a Child’s Heart

 

If being a successful children’s book author is one of your dreams, may I suggest rhyme be part and parcel to your writing arsenal. Children can be a rather finicky and discerning audience when it comes to words that grab their precious attention. As a writer I have always gravitated to alliterative sound and rhyme to help achieve this task. I believe rhyme can be used as a major gimmick for capturing and maintaining a child’s interest.
