Hopefully it was a Kindle Fire, not a house fire.

Hey Lucas. I got both of your books a couple days ago. And just now I went and removed them from my kids kindles and the account. If I had actually paid for them I would have returned them for a refund.

I really don't like self promotion under the pretense of making a suggestion to new kindle owners.

Ah I'm sorry you feel that way man. I guess I don't see what is wrong with self promotion, but I really do apologize if this is a problem to anyone.

I am just a normal guy really excited about my work, I'm not trying to ruin anyones day or hurt anyones feelings today.

I deleted the post.

Well thanks for deleting the post. The problem is that it's very difficult believe that authors don't bother checking out the rules of posting before they post. It's your profession (or at any rate I'm sure you hope to make it your profession) so it makes sense that you would do at least a little checking before promoting your product. Authors are only allowed to promote their books in the Meet Our Authors forum. You did post your original promotional thread in that forum. And then in this forum you didn't mention your product at all but instead linked to your other thread as if it were just a suggestion from a fellow Kindle user. You can understand how that appears to be a deliberate attempt to get around the rules.
