Hello guys,

I am new here. I have two blocked books. And the people from KDP is asking me to reove those books from my shelf.
So far I cannot say how it is done.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Best, Jose

Go to your Bookshelf and to your book. Look on the far right where (I think) it shows three dots. Click on that. A delete option should show.

My books are blocked, the three dots aren't active.

Then you'll need to do a Contact Us (lower right of this screen) and ask those folks to do it for you.

I have the same trouble with a print version of one of my books. The ebook is ok but the Print is blocked. they keep asking for details which i send and they reply that the book is blocked. I already know that. WAKE UP Amazon. Unblock so that I can deleate it. Or I'll pack it all in and go somewhere else. It is possible to print the books up at home using a sort of tie press for A5 and make up long staples. Then an A4 cover. If you print the A5 double sided you don't have to worry about getting the pages in the right order. I've already done this with one of my books.

Paperbacks are NEVER deleted. You can either block them (customer service) or take it/them out of all sales areas. IF you want to republish a title with content changes, let customer service know what you are going to do.

I have a few that I requested they block them and I advised that I would be republishing with many changes, including to the title.

Wow, you actually pay someone to remove the blocked content when a quick code change would mean the user could do it themselves for free. Corporate bureaucracy gone mad. ;)

NO - Customer service does not charge an author.
