Amazon informed me that they pulled my book, Rain Falls, off sale, because they were getting too many complaints from readers about a chunk of missing text in the digital version.
I realized immediately what was happening, and I rolled my eyes so hard, I could see my brain. My apparently way-too-clever brain.
I made adjustments in the file to accommodate this, and added this note to readers in the front:
SPECIAL NOTE TO READERS
Recently, Amazon pulled this book down, because too many readers were complaining about missing text. Apparently, those readers did not understand that the missing text was a JOKE. But the joke went over too many heads. This is a book about writers, and I titled one chapter (Chapter 20) as “Writer’s Block.” And then I left that one page blank and went to the next chapter.
So now, I will upload this file to replace that one, and hopefully I won’t lose too many sales for trying to be clever.
