My dad was a great Christmas stocking stuffer. We always got the best oranges and pecans, little fun things like a sling-shot or a troll, but most of all a book.

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
