For some reason only 3 of my Kindle ebooks (under my pen-name Sally Quilford) are showing on Amazon at the moment. They're all showing as live in the kdp page, so I don't know what the problem is. But I am worried that the sales I've been gradually building up are going to be lost because people can't find my books.
Is anyone else having this problem today?
Just to add that the links to the ebooks work from my blog. The ebooks are just not showing up in the 'search' or when I click on my pen-name.

There are threads about this issue on the account forum as well, at least we are not alone. This is just another 'technical glitch' in a long line of technical glitches. I wish Amazon would get themselves sorted out, how are we supposed to sell books if no one can find them. I am at #13 in my genre, probably drop of the back a*se of beyond now. What is particularly annoying is other authors in my genre are still searchable.
Wow. I didn't even notice this till you posted this and I checked! Some of my authors' books show on the UK site; some don't. One author has only one book showing instead of six. Can't be pulled up, even from Author Central UK, by name, title, or ASIN/ISBN. Gaaaaahh.
When your book doesn't show you have to input at least 2 specific tags not including the book title. I had that exact same problem and it was the only thing that worked for me. It's frustrating when not even your own family can find your book let alone complete strangers.
I had recently been told about my tags and I did amend them and I received an email saying it was ok. My name and my book doesn't appear in searches today, but if I go through on a link
it appears. It is ok on amazon.com. I'm glad it's not just me. I hope it sorts out cos no one will find my book.
I wonder if the "missing books" is because amazon are setting up the new author pages for Kindle fire..
As I received an email a couple of weeks ago saying to update my author central page ready for new Kindle Fire author pages.
And my books are also missing on my author central page also no sales reports in author central.
