In 7 Jun, I received one email from AMZ that said my account had been terminated and my royalties will be hold. I replied email to ask why they block my account but I havent seen any actions from AMZ. I gone to Contact Us and send a question to they but nothing respond. All of my books writen by me. And I'm sure they cant find a simulor book in another store. So, I need to know reason, why why and why?

Hi there,

My understanding from reading similar threads in the forums is that accounts are blocked if the book contents are freely available on the web,

Perhaps if you provided more details from amazon's email, we could provide further advise.

Did you write your own material, or did you scrape a book together off articles openly available on the net? Did you steal another author's work and put it up as your own? Did you have books up for sale on more than one Amazon account? These are the top three things that will result in an email like this. If you did none of these things, then email and ask why your account was terminated. That's really the only thing you can do, and it hasn't got any guarantee that your account will be reinstated.
