Re: [redacted] Amazon - totally agree
At the moment, any drivel, any length can be uploaded and the authors get the same as if they'd written something worthwhile. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a machine out there to deliberately hype up crap just to get the income. From July, these crooks will be deactivated, as long as Amazon can tell the difference between a sweatshop paid to flick through pages without reading them, and a genuine reader. I will know if my books bring anything in from the 'Select' programme, because although I know they've been read, I've had two tenths of diddly back from the (other) big A. I'll give them a couple of months and then remove the lot and get back to the traditional methods.
