I am taking most of my ebooks out of select one by one as the 90 days expire. I am keeping them on Amazon, but am also placing them with other stores. How can my Amazon reviews go along or can they? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kathy

I deal direct with B & N now and B & N allows you to do this.

To my surprise my amazon reviews just showed-up on Smashwords. I didn't do it. In fact it felt a little creepy. Nothing like publishing a book to realize the concept of privacy is Dodo dead.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that it's against Amazon's terms to post your reviews on other sites. I'm not sure, if that's true, how'd that'd work because any reviewers write a review and post it to multiple sites...

I don't remember reading that. It may be true. I don't see how that can be enforced either, just google your name or book and you'll find all sorts of mentions and reviews.
I'm beginning to see the point in using a pen name.
I find it uncomfortable, to say the least, to see my name scattered around the internet. AND, I'm not famous, or even a selling at a high volume.
I am pretty old, I bet those under 30 don't even notice it.

The reviewers are the ones who have to cross post the reviews.

Kattydel,
I take back what I said about the reviews just showing up on smashwords. I just checked again. Out of three books, only one (the one so far approved for Premium Catalogue, has the reviews. And they showed up in extended description.
The other two, waiting for approval from Premium, already have the extended description filled in by me and no reviews.
