KDP feedback - my thoughts

I’ve just released my first book on KDP.

I’m based in the UK and one thing I’d very much appreciate is the ability to ‘gift’ my novel – something that can already be done at

As a new author I’d like to be able to send my book to editors for review and at present this is not possible. The only way around this predicament is to ask for a kindle email address from the reviewer and then ask the recipient to add your own email address so it doesn’t get treated as spam, which of course is more time consuming – and from personal experience unlikely to happen.

One more request: it’d be great if Amazon allowed authors to send copies to reviewers that were erased after a week or so. If the files were automatically deleted Amazon wouldn’t lose profit and we’d be more likely to have our writing reviewed and potentially gaining us more sales.

I've had mine knocked back to draft a couple of times now.
There are some extremely minor edits I might make to the file, but no obvious, easy way to do that, and no feedback as to the reason why my product, which is available at CreateSpace, isn't making it to sale on Amazon.
One could grow tired of this.
