My collection of six stories, Pray Lied Eve 2, is free for Kindle this weekend https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01NB0YCD7 - my question is, where is the best place to promote this? I have shared to twitter, instagram, tumblr, google+ and facebook as well as goodreads. I feel like those are the easy ideas, so any input is greatly appreciated!

Also, is it true that authors cannot review other author's work on Amazon? Many writers I know refrain from what could be seen as nepotistic reviews, but I still see others able to do it.

If one of your customers also happens to be an author, there is no rule against them leaving a review if they wish to do so.
It's (requesting) review swaps and the like that is against the TOS.

I've had one of my titles reviewed by a poster to these forums. Now I don't dare leave a review for any of his/her works. Because trying to reason with the Zon on any topic related to reviews is useless.

Edit: That said, the one genuine but truly cringeworthy (5-stars, yet!) review that I've really wanted to get removed from one of my titles just yesterday was removed, probably by the Zon. Had I asked for this to be done, you could bet it would have been affixed to my title forever by the electronic equivalent of two-part epoxy. (I think the review was posted by a reviewer who was overloaded with review requests, and he/she just posted a glowing generic review that just screamed "fake.")

That makes sense, and clarifies that fairly! Thank you.
