I love my kindle… Let me say that first before I go any further. I think it is absolutely the best thing my hubby has ever gotten for me seconded only by my sewing machine. That being said…. I’m really starting to get to the point that I don’t want to have interactions with Amazon. I think they are sneaky thieves…. Don’t believe me? Google: amazon deletes books. The first two results should nab your attention. How about the reviews that have been deleted in the last couple of months or even the last couple of years? Ask your friends out there that review books they read if amazon has pulled any of their’s… Chances are you will know someone who has had it happen to them. Need more than just the word of your friend? Google: amazon deletes reviews and see the top two again. Or you can continue to scroll down and see the many discussions of “Why did Amazon delete my reviews?” etc. I have a friend who has been told by Amazon, after they deleted all her reviews, that it was because she received compensation for her reviews. Their proof? None. None whatsoever. So why do they think that? Someone targeted her and made false claims and instead of investigating it they just yanked them all and now she can’t post any more reviews at all. Seems like all it takes on Facebook or there on Amazon is some pissy busybody to say something and they jump through hoops to do exactly what they want yet they don’t do shite to verify the claims. Keep it up and there will be someone you piss off that does something about it…. There’s a 17 year old that refused to take Amazon’s crap. Google: 17 yr old sues amazon. There will be someone that makes something better (hello we all remember myspace and how much they sucked: hence FB was made). That will do what these companies don’t and makes things better… And its going to be soon if they keep pissing people off because someone will get so angry they decide to do it better.
I was reading a book today that happened to be Adult Erotic Romance. I enjoyed the book but you want to know what popped into my head? I want to ask the author “When you were writing the love scenes did you get turned on?”
I mean seriously! If they are steamy enough to make your many fans drool, how can an author write it without feeling the same.
Okay now i’m determined to find out… I got a few author friends I feel comfortable with… I think I’m gonna ask them…. Wish me luck lol!
So I’m trying my hand at blogging. This should be fun, lol!!!
I guess I shall start with a lil bit about me. Well I’m wife to a medically retired Army vet. He’s my heart and soul and I thank God he came home alive. Like I tell him Afghanistan loved you so much, it sent you home with a souvenir! He had shrapnel in the back of his head and down his body. I busted my butt trying to get him the care he needed and the support to lean on. And let me tell you, that’s one experience that I don’t wish on anyone. It did give me a better appreciation of the strength I never knew I had. We also have two wonderful boys. Both have ADHD and can be completely random but always awesome. I’m an avid reader and my hubby thanks himself everyday for getting me a kindle. I know he was so tired of tripping over all my books on a daily basis! And yes when we moved back to TX I had several totes and boxes full of said books that I just couldn’t bear to part with. I make jewelry as a hobby and started selling items online. If you ever want to check it out you can find it at https://www.facebook.com/TSaylorSouthernBelleDesigns. I am also teaching myself to quilt. Its a bit more tedious than I reckoned but I’m having fun. I’ll post pics soon.
So I guess this is where I should introduce my plans for this page. I plan on doing reviews on just about everything from books to makeup to recipes, etc. I also may just vent or add random things just because. Who knows? Its a crazy place in my head and I’d like to bring you along for the ride. So ready or not, here we go!
