I have had several people who tried posting their reviews on my book 'The Immortals: Tsuyoidesu Mura'. However when they post it, it does not show up. One even tried the next day and asking amazon and their policies and they have no reason as to what the issue could be. Does anyone have any advice? After all, reviews are integral to a self publishing writer. Thank you for any help, Kristian.

Anyone attempting a review must have had accumulated purchases (of any kind--not just books) with Amazon of $50 or more. This may be different for certain countries, such as India, but I'm not certain of this.

Also, if Amazon's automated search engines ("the bots") deter*mine that you and your reviewer are "too close," the engines won't post the review because it'll be evaluated as biased.

BTW, "deter*mine" is one of those odd words that will get your post immediately sent to mod*eration--thus the asterisk. Don't ask why.
