Hey, CWL, no need to knock wrinkledness — a word seldom written but often thought about! (Seldom enough that my spellcheck flagged it for some reason.)

Oh, I'm not knocking anyone being wrinkled! It's just that as of this point, I'm not. I will be someday, but I was very lucky in the genetics lottery and it's going to take me longer than some to show my age. People generally guess I'm decades younger than I am. Yay me! Sadly, my joints and memory aren't that great, but I cope.

Anyway, I've been catching up on this version of the thread, and my head is spinning. Thank goodness I'll forget it all before long, because keeping this kind of nonsense in the brain must be a contributor for dementia.

Even in my fogged dotage, I think segments of 'prose' on this thread will remain indelible, forever wondering if works of genius lay blindly all before. Doh!

I would like to understand if the disappearance of already published posts is an usual occurrence on Kindle Community or it only happened to me.
Because I have the proof,the mail with the copy of my post.But the post doesn't show on the thread and I didn't delete it.
Something strange happened here and I want to know what is.
Censorship,one mistake of the system or a simple joke of the elves?

Everybody listen , you are three, may be four or five , that's not a huge force for someone with many resources as I am. Plus, I am far ,and the distance is an asset,so I will be able to follow thinking and to express my opinions in all kinds of matters, in everything, and no one can force me to change my views on American culture.Yesterday we saw that ignorants and resented are a threat to an entire heritage of civilisation.But you can't kill ideas. I will stay firmly here. Thank you

This is worst than expected. An entire page has been withdrawn.The first 10 days of November posts in this thread ( Kindle don't - doesn't know to sell ) had been erased .Nothing remains of our conversation elapsed between pages 3 and 4 .
Hocus pocus or bug? And why do something so blatant.
I am not the only involved.Many other people published there but I am the only worrying about.

The webmaster enigma.

The flagrant disparity between page 3 and page 3
The Webmasters are leaving their imprint over the worldweb.
The first results of my investigation shows two different pages number 3 .One is the true and original,the other being the alternate ,the imposture taking the place of the true.
In one I am ,in the other I'm not and my says had been erased.
How it came to happen on this prestigious platform and which is the exercise we are being subjected ?

A conspiracy, certainly.

I am a foreigner selling books here. I have had to learn American English and make adaptations for the North American reader. I have had to employ editors and to learn. The result is that I sell books. The better result is that my investment in understanding story telling has made me a better story teller. I am still learning. I think I will be learning until I write my last word.

What a splendid reply!

I know it's very bad of me, but I can't stop following this thread. I find it reassuring, though I couldn't tell you why.

Reassuring perhaps in the sense that futility is part of life's natural order?

I was upset when I first published on amazon Kindle too. I ranted the same way you do, but there were so many who responded to my post. I took their advice and used it as constructive criticism. Now my book is starting to take off at a steady pace. It's your job to run your own marketing and ad campaigns. Like I was told.....writing a book is like running a business. you have to take your own initiative and market your business, which is your book. I hope this helps.

Hi Penny,glad to meet you.
By the way ,who is Bill Dellorey.I thought you was talking to me.

How it is that I have to sell books? I don't know how to start ,where ,to whom.
Here we call it : go selling his own fish.
I spent a couple of years peddling incenses sticks and self made deodorant and moth repellant in two different countries and I did it rather good.But those were large consuming products everybody wanted to have .
But a book? To go ringing bells door by door or sometimes clapping hands calling : Señor, Señora do you like,do you want this?
Kindle is a wonderful platform for the indie author to upload the book and keep working on it ,something inconceivable ten years ago.
I am grateful to Kindle for save and safeguard my book fot the posterity.
Now I see the hard evidence that we are many struggling to escape from anonymity then becoming my competitors because here we are not on the same boat .
