If you want to hear my take on things in a condensed fashion, here you go! Also, if you ever wondered how annoying my voice is... Here it is! All me, baby!

One of the posters had a good idea, or at least seemed to. Screw the e-mail route, and just call their customer service line. Not sure if that would really work either though.

I don't know either. It can't hurt to try it, if the current method doesn't work at all.

Note:Yes, I really do sound like a demented elf. There is no voice modulation there. I sound like that all the time.

Amazon.com has decided not to bother responding. Which of course doesn't help them or me at all.

:)

Well, I can't do much about it.

Looks like it got taken down.

EDIT - The review, not the YouTube video.

Apparently, someone emailed Jeff Bezos about it, which seems to have worked? :)

Possibly because it actually was illegal for them to leave it up, but I was resigning myself to them not bothering to look at it. So, I guess that I need to put up a second video on it soon?

I feel a bit better. At least the Libel isn't out in public anymore. It hurt some sales, but I'll live.

Dale,

I feel your pain here. I had a similar outrageous review the other day for my latest book and I pitched a fit. Same deal-you are allowed to have your opinion, but libel is something else entirely. They had it down in under an hour, but funny thing was, I never received any notice of it. I just saw it was gone.

Anyway, I completely agree with your premise that there are some reviewers out there who write reviews with an ulterior motive. I've never paid for or "traded" for a review, ever, and I've never written a review to sabotage someone, but I can see how it happens. I don't know if my sales have ever been enough to bring out the "hit squad" for my books, but the Big Five do notice us indies and small press publishers when we start climbing the Best Seller lists in our chosen genre. I know they do, because when their imprints send me e-mails to solicit me for a contract, they cite exactly where and when the book peaked. Hell, I can't even do that.
