In Which the Author Needs Eyes On, Please

For those who have been following the Case of the Disappearing Books, it seems that, what with One Thing and That Other One Over There, books — even books which are properly our books — have been re-accounted to my Amazon bibliography.

And it is now that I would ask those who have a few minutes to help me out.

It would be a Very Good Thing Indeed to have as many eyes as possible scrutinizing the catalog pages for our various titles to (1) be sure that the link to the Sharon Lee Author Page is, in fact, on that page, (2) that the link actually goes to the proper Sharon Lee Author Page, and! (3) that the Author Page displays Proper Lee-and-Miller, and Lee, titles.

If you find a catalog page that does not have the Author Page link, would you leave a link to that page in comments, please.

Thank you very much for all you do.

Amazon Sharon Lee Author Page Error Take Three

Hello Sharon,

Thanks for contacting Author Central.

I've reviewed your request and I can now confirm that the customer reviews are showing up in your Author Central account.

I've made some changes as well internally because as you stated they were German books under your account, those books are removed and they will not be added again.

Regarding the books with Steve Miller, I apologize to see that they are not showing up on your account, I would recommend you to add them once again or you can provide us with the ISBN or ASIN number of those books and we will add them for you.

I hope this helps! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best regards,
Sofia H.

To which my reply is:

Dear Swapna K.

I’m afraid this is all a little more difficult than either of us would like it to be.

First of all, I have no idea what kind of screen shot you want me to send you.

As to what we have before us now:

Last night, after throwing things at the wall for quite some time, I went back into my Amazon Author Central Account and added in three titles:  Carousel Tides, Carousel Sun, Carousel Seas, just to see if I could, basically.  I’m very pleased that they are now listed in my account, and that the link to my author page now appears on the catalog page for those three titles.

I can see the sales data for those three legitimate titles, I still cannot see the customer reviews.  Carousel Tides has 56 reviews, dating back to November 2010.  Carousel Sun has 49 reviews, starting in February 2014; Carousel Seas has 49 reviews, starting in February 2015.

Furthermore.

I am the author, with Steve Miller, of twenty-seven additional titles, going back decades, which have all been wiped out of my Author Central Account — I see no reviews and no sales data for ANY of those titles — and none of the catalog pages for those titles are linked to my Amazon Sharon Lee Page.

In addition to that — the three German books that haunt my published book page do not belong to me, I don’t know why they’re there, and I would very much like them to be gone. Forever, if at all possible.

This is not the first time this has happened to my Author Central Account, and to the best of my knowledge, it is not because I Did Something.

Please fix this problem

Thank you.

Sharon Lee

Sharon Lee Amazon Author Page Error

Eventually, I think, this will show up on my vastly changed and wholly false Amazon Author Page, and is the best way I can think of to inform people who may actually depend upon that page for information.

Sometime in the last few days, Amazon appears to have deleted the Sharon Lee Amazon Author Page.  The link to that page which used to be appear at the bottom of the catalog pages for all of our books has vanished.  The author page itself now only shows three titles — none of them written by me and/or Steve and I, all of them in German.

Also, in what appears to be a continuation of the same problem, the information that should be available to me as an author on Amazon’s Author Central — such as sales figures, reviews, rankings, titles of books — have also vanished.

I do not know what happened, and I don’t expect it to be fixed, really, but at least now the three people beside myself who might care about this know what happened, if not why.
