What do you think of this one? I was the first to review a newly released (and fortunately free that day) piece of garbage including a summary of the errors, factual omissions, missing sections, and apparent plagarism. Within a couple of hours of my review going live, one person found the review "not helpful." Under the circumstances, I can only conclude that the author or friend/family was trying to fight back and negate my review. Not quite as bad as writing your own review, but still...

That's pretty common. Try writing a low-rated review of Twilight or similar if you really want to add on some negative votes.

"She thinks she is awesome sauce."

Did I never say how out-the-blowhole spectacular that was? I'm talkin' Havana-leaf premium. It's a cross-court winner!

(Still playing with the thesaurus.)

That's inappropriate too. This has been covered endlessly. This is where you go to promote your book:

http://www.amazon.com/forum/meet%20our%20authors/ref=cm_cd_topf_t?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx2UYC1FC06SU8S

I get it. You want reviews, and what better place to ask than the Top Reviewers Forum? Still, Amazon is clear that the kind of solicitation you're doing is not allowed here.

"It would be inappropriate to post my review of my own memoir
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Would you please do it for me?"

Is it just me or is that freaking hilarious?

P.S.

It occurred to me that he doesn't need to beg for reviews with not-so-self-effacing self-review humor--assuming it *was* intentionally humorous--then I checked and more than half of the ten reviews are One-Hit Wonders.

I am in process of reading your book, and will leave a comment for you at your web page. Please do not be discouraged by by the rudeness you are encountering. I wish you the very best.

"Please do not be discouraged by by the rudeness you are encountering."

Yeah, just go on spamming. The lonely squatter troll wants a friend and that's way more important than forum etiquette or even Amazon Guidelines.

Jason:

I am so very sorry. I apparently missed the notification whereby Amazon appointed you hall monitor. And you apparently have at least one deputy.

Jason was not appointed, he was elected.

Gary Peterson:

That's very reassuring . . . democracy at work. Could you please provide me (and others) with detail. Amazon may well be interested in this also.

And I'm sure the election was rigged. Once I get all my evidence together I will present it in book form ($0.99. What a deal!)

Then we'll just see who the hall monitor is! ;(

Ah. Now I understand some of the animosity around here. You were Rebecca's running partner, right?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 3, 2012 10:17:36 PM PDT
Run? Me? Surely you jest!

Campaign Manager?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 3, 2012 10:35:24 PM PDT
Haha! I was making a joke about running. You know, running as in moving.

Don't worry, folks. If you elect me as your Hall Monitor I promise not to make any jokes.

So, want to be my running mate?

And my running mate I mean you'll do all the work and I'll get all the glory. ;)
