B004M8S89Q was my short story, Tap Root, which has now been blocked. There is nothing in it which would cause it to be blocked, it is a rather mild horror story. I have notified KDP about this, but expect it to be cleared up. I don't know who is messing with my titles but they are going to pay, and pay dearly. I am halfway out the door now. Give me a reason why I should stay, or I will pull everything out RIGHT NOW!

I have checked my author central page and discovered that not only was the listing still there it shows no pricing information. I set the price at $2.99 deliberately, yet it is not posted. At first I had thought that it was pirated, but it does not come up in search. If that is going to be the way Amazon continues to make mistakes, I will be pulling all my ebooks from Amazon as planned. I am angry and I expect a decent explanation for this, or they lose me Thursday. That's all there is to it.

Are you seriously threatening Amazon with pulling all your work if they don't "fix" whatever is wrong? You think they care??? Reading your various posts, I still have no clue what the problem was with your short story, and I suspect Amazon doesn't either.

You should probably contact KDP Customer Service. The links are at top right of this page. This forum is rarely monitored by KDP officials, as it is a forum for authors and self-publishers to meet, discuss, and brain-storm. Your issues are unlikely to be resolved here.

If you contact KDP Customer Support (which I have heard can be a bit slow going), you may be able to resolve this issue to your satisfaction.

Good luck, and I hope that this helps.

So pull it out. Who cares?
