Hello, please somebody should help my out.
Sometimes in January 2017, I was notify that my account has been blocked as a result that I have multiple accounts which I have no idea about. I have complained to them but they still uphold there decisions to keep the accounts blocked. Since then I have kept the account under scrutiny and I have come to discover that the said blocked account has been used for Amazon's personal interest as people still get access to my books and to the points that I have downloaded all the transactions on my report page for the month of January and I made some money from that. My problem now is that why will Amazon choose to block my account without paying me my due money earned after their accusation which was false and to the point that they still made money from the account and keep it to themselves. To me this is fraudulent. Please my co-author, what is your advice on what to do?

I am actually interested in what you are saying. Honestly. I really mean this. I often prefer to talk to other authors just to know the score, to scope out
the 'scene' before I commit myself to Contact Us. Why?
1. We do not know who we are dealing with.
2. Do they really work for this company?
3. Is it a monopoly on a 100% global level. (This can be.)
It has happened before to other industries, like oil, or almost, like a 55% stranglehold
on world oil production, which can be deadly in effect, which OPEC may have had from
say, 1973 to 1978, etc. More or less. Amazon today has about, probably, the highest
concievable share prices. Does that mean a monopoly worldwide on publishing... both paper
and electronic, which we can only suspect? Their center of power in money and raw...
executive muscle, as we say, is concentrated in Seattle. Sounds dramatic, but may
be so. Check it out.
4. Then go to the American Writer's Union. They are easy to find. They may be uf use.
5. This is a young industry.
7. They may not know what to say, honestly. Often they were crass, but then they got mellower.
Keep checking it out. Let me know what they say. Pass word around.

I have in mind an older scifi writer who was crude, tough, basic, youthful, etc. He is in Dream Makers.
Not to try to be "tuffie" myself. But this person did, in the 70s, get the SFWU or something, to go to
"work" for them with powerful lawyers, on paper, like Watergate, or ERA, etc, and they got some
guy - Tolkien - his money. Twas a lot. (Over $250,000 they say. I am not sure. ) But that was in a
simple age long before this new hitech stuff. But they did work it out. (I do not even like Tolkien,
personally.) We are not American, but can deal with them. We can even, say, do some survey
by mail, etc to find out what some Europeans think, even those who do not speak English.
I am not also in the UK, but they are 65 million people who speak English, so they can be
a mighty influence. I have, in 1997, met some people who were powerful, in a legal, and
meaningful, sense, in some North American Writer's Guild, which exist. They were fast and
alert in having meetings, and getting results. They also socialized and had fun at parties.
This still exists. Just email Ad Astra politely, and ask for honest advice. Just claim to speak
for "people" in general. Then get more "pointed"... I do not know what they know about the
hitech industry. (Check my blog on Vanity Fair.)

Last week we came down off the clouds and got into basic stuff. It may work out. One idea, which is
VERY, VERY, HYPOTHETICAL, is to get paid by the hour, or get State-supported subsidies. Sounds
like a cop out. May be. But if this new way of marketing "data" on cyberspace is like Dungeons and Dragons,
with Lawful Evil, Chaotic Evil, Lawful Good, Chaotic Good, as Unknown Factors, or something, then it will take
new policies. Say, if they can run a check to see if there are "leaks" in our "system" and find that some jerks
out there are, in fact, buying your books, but denying this fact, then say so. So then, try to get banks or the
State to bail out "our" industry, to pay us a minimum "rate. Sounds like "means of production" which is
a copout, and socialism, but... this is not America. As the song says. (Maybe the Russians or Chinese
can offer an alternative, once this global stuff dies a bit.) The 'system' is changing.

The Republicans would love to legislate cyberspace... they need to fight cyber wars. Join them.
This is not on paper, which is static, but kinetic and dynamic. Like high speed trading.

Some of this is literal, logic, but some is sort of metaphorical. Okay? I am experimenting.

Say, if the issue is a matter of taste, which is not known, then I really need to find out. They said that to know the right
answers, ask the right questions. Last weekend I had some good answers but that was personal, so I will not
get into it. But in general this is hopeful. (It was more cosmic, not what you may think. Let me say it was not for
"youth" kind of thing.) Like, my PC is now running down, so I have given up on Helldorado, which we liked
to play, and it was Brain Drain... boring, dumb, silly, evil and a waste of time. Also video games burn your
PC out over time. They take more speed and bytes. We just cannot get into it. We are going from Windows
Seven to Ten. It works. The Union Soldiers from 1883 are hard to handle, and they take forever to get off that
goofy old train, but the latter versions work. It gets spooky and creepy in the end, when the Good Guys save
the...? Has Life changed? Spooky and creepy is the Way. (As a joke, it takes Kate forever to finally get across
town to board the Tinkerbelle in the summer heat, but she does. It is almost unpossible in "HARD" mode.
Try EASY first. The creators were influenced by Karl May. The lipsinc is perfect. It's OK for small kids.

  • the HARD mode is HARD... it is
