For a company that says it is "Earth's Most Customer-Centric Company" Kindle has now listed my book about PSYCHOPATHIC ABUSE as a book that people who are interested in "SPORTS BOOKS" finds interesting! My book ”The Secret Life of Captain X: My Life with a #Psychopath Pilot” http://goo.gl/wXYwiI IS NOT RELATED TO SPORTS WHATSOEVER. I AM SO TIRED OF THIS ABUSE! Last time Amazon listed it as "Those interested in History" and changed it to something acceptable. NOW YOU HAVE IT LISTED as those interested in SPORTS BOOKS. The book is a memoir on ABUSE. I have been ABUSED and putting the words SPORT on my page is ABUSING ME FURTHER!

No one at Amazon is sitting at a computer thinking of ways to upset you. Blame the 101 unanimously favorable reviewers who also enjoy sports books in significant enough number to trigger an interest tag. You should be thrilled to appeal to such a diverse group! Since sports fans think your book is so amazing, the algorithms will extend your exposure so it appears as a recommendation on books about athletes, exercise, and all kinds of sportsball, whose readers can be expected to love your book, if the habits of your reviewers are any indication.

If you had a desirable outcome reporting the issue to Amazon last time, you should follow that procedure again. Complaining here, on an author/publisher forum where no one can help you, isn't going to accomplish anything.

Your current ranking on the US store is less than 1 million five hundred thousand, which means hardly anyone's buying or reading it anyway and no-one cares...

No one is abusing you, no matter how much you'd like them to. The reader service to which you refer is a beta; if you don't think it helps readers, then click the no button and move on to something else you can whinge and whine about...I'm sure there is an endless supply.

Amazon is trying a new experiment to beat out ESPN. Just stick it out.

I know it's been said but we, on this forum, are author's too. We don't have anything to do with who likes you book so STOP YELLING AT US!

So people with interests outside of your genre liked your book? I will never understand why you think this is a bad thing.

As my fellow authors have already stated, you really shouldn't come on an authors' forum screaming at everyone about the ABUSE you are suffering at the hands of A*zon, just because they are broadening the appeal of your book to readers who may not normally be interested in your genre.

If someone advertised my book to people who liked fly-fishing, I wouldn't complain. I'm sure there are romance loving fly-fisherman everywhere!

Am I the only one who sees the irony in the fact that the one person on this forum who doesn't seem to know the definition of the word 'abuse', is the person who has written a whole book about it?

Just my thoughts. J

The listings you are speaking of in the review section are still in beta mode which means Zon is working out the kinks. One of my more "adult" titles has a review rating for people interested in children's books, not exactly what I would recommend but the stats are based on the interests entered by those people that left you reviews so you know at least some people interested in Sports were also interested in your book on Abuse.

I would suggest that getting upset is not a good solution to this as it is a feature completely out of your control. In addition, by claiming that this issue is abusive to you on a public, highly SEO optimized forum, you are doing a disservice to yourself as an author and your book. Having seen what you reference as abuse on here and how you reacted, potential readers will draw conclusions about your book and your story that are not likely to be what you wish.

OooW. I could write a dozen books on psychopaths. I seem to be a magnet for them.

Not to shine light on your abuse, I really want to read your book. Will purchase it when I have some money in my account.

:( so, so broke.
