David Bruce’s KINDLE DESKTOP PUBLISHING ACCOUNT TERMINATION

THIS IS KDP'S EMAIL TO ME:

Hello,

We are terminating your account effective immediately because we found that you have published titles with misleading content that have the potential to mislead or defraud our customers.

You can see the violations reflected in the following title(s):

B08LNLCLBN/William Shakespeare's King Lear: A Retelling in Prose

As part of the termination process:

• We will close your account

• You're no longer eligible to receive any outstanding royalties

• You'll no longer have access to your accounts. This includes, editing your titles, viewing your reports and accessing any other information within your account

• All of your published titles will be removed from sale on Amazon

Additionally, as per our Terms and Conditions, you aren't allowed to open any new KDP accounts.

You can find our Terms and Conditions, here: https://kdp.amazon.com/terms-and-conditions

THIS IS MY REPLY:

The two books in question are

William Shakespeare's King Lear: A Retelling in Prose

and

The History of King Leir: A Retelling

They are two separate books. The History of King Leir is a source for Shakespeare's famous tragedy: King Lear.

How about we remove from sale The History of King Leir? That way, readers will not be confused.

While we are at it, I have two other books — not flagged by you — with similar titles:

The Taming of a Shrew: A Retelling

and

William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew: A Retelling in Prose

The Taming of a Shrew is a source for Shakespeare's famous tragedy [Oops! Should be comedy]: The Taming of the Shrew.

How about we remove from sale The Taming of a Shrew? That way, readers will not be confused.

To avoid confusion and to provide a better value to readers I can combine plays.

The two Lear/Leir books will become one book.

The two Shrew books (a Shrew/the Shrew) books will become one book.

No misrepresentration [Oops! Should be misrepresentation] is/was intended by me.
