For the first time since using KDP, I'm really frustrated. My Author Central page has dropped off the UK site just as I launched a new release. Links from my twitter and author facebook page point to my Author Central account. Really disappointed that I'm potentially (certainly?) losing sales as a consequence. E-mailed for advice and got a blanket response saying Amazon is aware of problem. Not really helpful, guys. Grrrr.
When did you last look? A number of us have experienced the same problem over the last few days, but our UK Author Central pages and profiles are now back up and running. However, there is a snag: the 'Customers Also Bought Items By' section has vanished from my Amazon author page, and I have vanished from other authors' equivalent pages, thereby rendering me near invisible. I can appreciate your intense frustration at having this happen just when you're launching a book, as it couldn't happen at a worse time.
