Oh no, not this author? Say it isn't so? Surely not Kim Harrison?

Before it happened, I would never have believed favorite author Kim Harrison would campaign to hide an unwanted negative review on Amazon. So saddened.

 

Don't believe this usually great with readers, highly successful, big five published author is now doing so? Check her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KimHarrisonsHollows/posts/10154480162099940 .

 

Tez Miller Oz has more on his booklikes posts (which brought this to my attention).

 

Seriously, everyone, if you don't think negative reviews and lower star ratings should be allowed -- why aren't you campaigning to just do away with the five star rating systems on Amazon and other sites?  Every review written just automatically gets a 5-star or one big smiley emoticon, a trophy, a blue ribbon or something?  So that site policies and review guidelines cannot permit any review that isn't clearly promotional?  

 

(That's snarky; I know why not campaigning to do away with current rating system and policies -- it's because so many actual customers/readers would stop paying attention to or writing the things.  But, get real, if the one star reviews can be buried, hidden or removed -- is it really a 5-star scale running 1-5 or would it then be only a four star scale?)

No, ma'am it's not 48 review likes -- it's 681 [UPDATE: 1,025]

Silly rabbit, Trix™ are for kids.  And clueless-about-customer-service author, consumer book reviews are for readers.  (it's not 48 review likes -- it's 681 and counting...)

 

And my lovely author friends who do get it are sadly bemoaning what the potential sales and possibilities of those 681+ potential readers could have been for authors who don't call their customers bitches and call for the troops to attack them ...  

 

 

681 followers + their followers + their followers' followers (ya know, viral marketing and the very reason authors want reviews on book sites and social media? ) ... what many authors would love to leverage and hate to have leveraged against them.

Author response to a reviewer star-rating their book as "okay"

FYI fgoodreads prohibits professional reviews; there is no down voting to get a review hidden ("flag" on goodreads is the same as "report abuse" on Amazon).

 

Review in question if you want to judge for yourself and *snark* also flag it -- because *snark* why would anyone like it (which is sort of goodreads' equivalent to Amazon upvoting) -- http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1608577862?ref=ru_lihp_lk_rv_3_mclk-up3044652454
