Petitioning for Amazon to change it’s policy on review removal.

I signed this because there are so many indie authors out there supporting each other I think it’s ludicrous for Amazon to assume we know each other personally. Writers are usually voracious readers as well, just because I follow an author or comment on their posts doesn’t mean I know the author on a personal level.

We support each other; we’re a pretty great bunch of people all struggling to swim in a massive ocean of  bigger fish. The last thing we need is Amazon to harpoon us by removing our rightly deserved/earned reviews.

When I temporarily put them on my safe sender list for my kindle it means I won their book at a launch party, or in a contest somewhere. I’ve discovered new authors to read as well as to avoid reading in the future.

They should not assume to KNOW me personally by my contacts, comments or fandoms.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
