About The Book “PERILS”

This dramatic page-turner, set primarily in the early 1970s, centers on a young Kentucky woman, Autumn Leeves, born in 1946 to Abigail Leeves, an unwed mother who struggles to make ends meet. By 1970, Autumn graduated nursing school and is sent on assignment by the local hospital to care for the terminally-ill wife of middle-aged English equestrian master, Cyril Landon, owner of Landon Lawns Stables, a most successful thoroughbred racing stable located just outside Lexington, Kentucky in a posh community known as The Meadows.

Duff Taylor, a world-renown jockey who is tops in his field, lives full-time above the tack room at Landon Lawns and enjoys the many benefits it brings, but he also has a dark secret surrounding an unsolved racing incident from his past that he will go to any length to protect.

When Autumn arrives at Landon Manor in time to be thrown into the drama and finds herself caught in the ongoing disruption that ensues. What happens next?
You’ll need to read “The Perils of Autumn” …

Our Friends of TCK Publishing Is Sharing News of Amazon’s Ever-Changing “Book Review Policy”…

…..

We all know how important Book Reviews are for Authors and Writers…

Not that t is an easy task for authors to gain book reviews for our published works, it seems for readers as well.

Have you heard about the ALL THE rules for Amazon reviews?

Amazon has made several updates to their review policies recently, and that’s had a big impact on the industry.

In fact, many self-published and traditionally published authors have had Amazon reviews removed from their books for violating their new guidelines. So my Tom, my friend who runs TCK Publishing and who has a helpful blog too. He shares today for all of us about ALL the New Rules of Amazon Review Policies in hopes it helps all who give it a read!

~CAT of Cat Lyon’s Reading Den

……

Why-Did-Amazon-Remove-My-Book-Reviews

……

Having problems with your Amazon book reviews? So are we.

Our team at TCK is always happy when new books get immediate reviews on our Amazon product page. Our authors are also delighted when positive reviews start to roll in.

Amazon reviews not only build customer confidence, but they also create momentum. Book reviews can help improve your book sales and improve your rankings in Amazon’s algorithms by increasing your conversion rates (meaning more browsers actually end up buying your book).

Higher Amazon conversion rates influence cross-postings on other product pages and increase the chances that your book will be read and recommended by influencers or accepted by book promotion sites.

Not surprisingly, when reviews that had been rolling in suddenly start to disappear, it can be confusing and disappointing. To make matters worse, Amazon’s Customer Reviews Guidelines state,

“We can only discuss specific Customer Review removals with the person who originally posted the review.”

So, you may never know what the review said, who posted it, or why it was removed unless the person who posted it contacts you directly.

Amazon’s Newest Reviewer Policies

Amazon continually experiments with different guidelines and algorithms to eliminate fake reviews and “reviews for hire.” Their algorithms use machine learning and data mining to assess the multitudes of reviews that products and books receive daily, a task that would be impossible for the Amazon Community Guidelines team to tackle on their own.

While we at TCK Publishing applaud Amazon’s goal of a truthful review process, we don’t want legitimate reviews from readers and book reviewers to get caught in the crossfire!

In a relationship- and word-of-mouth-driven industry we believe authentic voices and relationships should outweigh machine learning and algorithms.

Here are some of Amazon’s current reviewer policies you should know about if you’re selling books on Amazon.

……..

…..

1. You cannot offer anything in exchange for a review

“We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind.” – Source

….
Paying for reviews is an obvious way to have your review deleted in a hurry.
But we were surprised to find that Amazon reviewer policies allow “book authors and publishers … to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review.”

It is therefore important that the review never states “I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.” If your reviewer insists on disclosing that they were offered a review copy, however, encourage them to use wording like “I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author,” otherwise the review may be pulled.

….

2. You cannot review your own book and family and friends cannot review your book

 

“We don’t allow individuals who share a household with the author or close friends to write Customer Reviews for that author’s book.”


Amazon has been cracking down ruthlessly on this policy. They have launched new data mining techniques in combination with artificial intelligence and machine learning to remove questionable reviews. Unfortunately, these tactics sometimes remove legitimate reviews as well.

“Family members or close friends of the person, group, or company selling on Amazon may not write Customer Reviews.”


…….
For example,
if friends or family leaving reviews use the same IP address as the author, Amazon may deem the reviews to be from “someone you know” and remove the reviews. They even go so far as to remove reviews from anyone that the author has “friended” on Facebook or other social media.

Before you panic and start deleting your Twitter, Instagram, and author fan page on Facebook, however, remember that social media is still a great platform for marketing your book and building your reader base.

One of our authors recently received this cryptic message from Amazon, which does not make it clear what similar information caused the eliminated review:

 

Hello,

We removed the Customer Review for your book because our data shows that elements of your Amazon account match elements of the reviewer’s Amazon account. In such cases, we remove the review to maintain trust in our customer reviews and avoid any perception of bias.

Customer Reviews are meant to give customers unbiased product feedback from fellow shoppers. Because our goal is to provide Customer Reviews that help customers make informed purchase decisions, any reviews that could be viewed as advertising, promotional, or biased will not be posted.

To learn more about this policy, please see our Customer Review Creation Guidelines (http://www.amazon.com/review-guidelines).

3. Customers in the same household may not post multiple reviews of the same product

If you leave a review for a product, no one else from the same IP address will be able to leave a review for the same product.

…..

4. If your book has only sold a few copies but receives many reviews they may be removed

If an influx of reviews appears immediately after a book’s release even though it has sold only a few copies, Amazon could deem this suspicious behavior and remove the reviews.

…..

5. Reviews must be respectful

This is fairly obvious. If a review is slanderous, obscene, sexual, crude, etc. it will be removed. You can take a look at Amazon’s Community Guidelines for details of what constitutes a non-respectful review.

…..

6. The review cannot post promotional content

This is also fairly obvious. Reviews cannot be used to market other products.

…..

7. The reviewer must be a recent customer on Amazon

To contribute to Customer features (for example, Customer Reviews, Customer Answers, Idea Lists) or to follow other contributors, you must have spent at least $50 on Amazon.com using a valid credit or debit card in the past 12 months.

Amazon reviewers must be regular Amazon customers. Prime members are automatically enabled to leave reviews since their purchase of Prime exceeds the $50 minimum. If they are still on the free trial of Prime, however, the $50 minimum would still apply.

…..

8. The reviewer does not necessarily have to purchase the book

However, we recently spoke to an Amazon customer support agent who said that all nonverified reviews were being removed. That means that the reviewer would have had to purchase the product in question as well as other products totaling $50 in the past year. This contradicts Amazon’s current Community Guidelines, therefore we hope that this is just a temporary measure by Amazon.

…..

Be on the lookout for fake reviews

We’ve seen several fake reviews posted about our authors’ books. We aren’t sure of the motive behind them, but it could be a tactic by a competitor to lower the product ratings.

Here are some red flags that can alert you to potentially fake reviews:

● The reviewer’s posts are all the same or similar.

● The reviewer posts only one- or five-star reviews, and there are very few helpful votes on any of their reviews.

● The reviewer has only one or two reviews, usually one star or five stars.

● The reviewer has posted many reviews in a short amount of time. We have seen hundreds of reviews from one reviewer on the same day.

● The review is brief and doesn’t provide any reason or explanation.

● The review doesn’t make sense or apply to the book. Here’s an actual review that was left on one of our author’s books: “The book took over my Kindle, the book crashed my computer.”

……

If you think a review on your book violates Amazon guidelines, report it

What can you do if you get a review that violates Amazon Guidelines? You can report it to the community help site.

To report:
1. Go to the review on your book listing

2. Click the “REPORT ABUSE” button

3. Click on the Report button

4. You can also contact Amazon Support at community-help@amazon.com. You must specify the location of the review (copy and paste the URL for the specific review into the body of your email) and explain why you believe the review violates the community guidelines.

My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through is a follow-up to the breakout novella, Heaven Shining Through. It introduces Sam (Samantha), her family and friends in more detail than the original, and picks up where the novella left off. I hope readers get to know Sam as a friend, a life long friend.

READERS, BOOK BLOGGERS, and REVIEWERS:

Goodreads:

Amy rated it … “It was amazing” ~ July 9, 2019

My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through is another fabulous read by Joe Siccardi.
This is an amazing light Christian based fictional memoir about Sam and her life struggles. It is quite an emotional but yet inspiring journey. I enjoyed getting to know Sam and seeing how she was able to cope with her life struggles.  I give My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through five-plus stars.
I highly recommend Sam’s story to all other readers.
I loved it! I received this book from the author but was not required to write a review.

……

Mary rated it on Goodreads ~ Aug. 3, 2019

I give 5 stars to “My Name is Sam…and Heaven Is Still Shining Through,” a fictional memoir, written by Joe Siccardi. This is a great book! I felt like it started a bit slow, just (my opinion) too many conversations, but about a quarter of the book later, I was hooked!

Our main character, of course, is Sam. The author starts the story in her college days but gives us plenty of glimpses of her younger years also. When Sam meets the love of her life, we are able to follow their marriage, the heartache of breaking various news to both sets of parents, and watching the choices that they all make as they are combining families.

Sam shares her decisions and rationalizations with us as we fall in love with her! We get to follow her throughout her life, share in her joys and sorrows, (yes, I am being intentionally vague, sorry). All the while we are knowing that God is on His throne, and nothing will happen in Sam’s life without His knowing.

I don’t want to say too much and give away the storyline, but I can say, if you don’t pick up this book, you will be missing out. I feel like the back of the book really doesn’t do the story justice! My Name is Sam, is a clean story. I think it would be suitable for teens and up. It is an easy read and a must-read! (This review contains my own opinions.)

 

………

July 1, 2019. ~Amazon Reviewer 

4.0 out of 5 stars  Page turning, enjoyable read


While there is a Christian worldview to the book, it isn’t preachy and the focus stays on navigating the joys and sorrows of life. Some laughter, some tears, which is my personal preference in a book. The characters were reasonably developed and authentic. Definitely recommend reading, especially for a beach read this summer or fall reading!

 

……..

Editorial Media Amazon Review:

Exceptional Fiction Memoir …

If you happened to have read Author Joe Siccardi’s debut book of “Heaven Shining Through” like I did, then you are going to enjoy reading this new full-length novel, the follow-up and the full story about the main character ‘Samantha,’ actually the backstory to her life. The perils and the fun of Sam’slife, if you will, is written, flows, and is told as if you and Sam are sitting in a coffee shop and reminiscing about life memories. It’s a definite 5 stars!
…….
Right from the first chapter, the author draws you in, and as I was reading, I felt as though I was reading about my own life and primarily through my 20s of meeting friends at a dance club mixing it up over some drinks and having fun. But that is just the tip of the story iceberg of Sam’slife. With a Christian filter, the story unfolds, and Sam begins to learn that Gods presence has always been within her life as she looks back and even when she was never aware.

When a writer makes you feel apart of the story, it means a great job with the writing was accomplished which is offered in this novel and so much more. By the time you learn all about Sam’s life, you will wish she was real as you could be life-long friends! This read has a little of everything about relationships, marriage, even parenting trials. The mother and daughter drama, some humor, and a few tissue moments are a few of the highlights.

Even though Sam has gone through some perils and beauty in her life through the years, Sam is consistently reminded that even in the worst of days, God has always been with her in protection and love through her life storms and as well as all the good life brings.

Just a fantastic read for anyone, especially for women. Even though it is a work of fiction, it reads like a real-life story if you enjoy memoirs or a unique fictional biography.

RF BOOK REVIEW:

Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers’ Favorite:

…..
My Dog is More Enlightened Than I Am by Maureen Scanlon is a beautiful self-help book which, as the title suggests, takes its inspiration from man’s best friend. Relax Whenever You Can, Be Spontaneous, Appreciate Our Differences, Take Care of Each Other, Self Care, No Regrets, and Be Curious are especially true and, I presume, all dog owners and lovers will be reminded of their canine friends and can easily relate to these first six chapters. The rest of the topics take their cue from the law of attraction with the writer sharing some of her experiences, both painful and joyous.

Maureen Scanlon is a certified life and spiritual coach and dynamic professional speaker as her book exhort’s readers to emulate these loyal and carefree creatures that have been important parts of many people’s lives in more ways than one. One of the things that make this book intriguing is that we don’t only get to know her dogs Jade and Brodie but the feeling that they are hugely instrumental in the production of this inspirational work, thus they are co-authors of this book.

All of us would like to make the most out of our lives and may look everywhere for inspiration, not realizing that the animals around us can help us find the peace and happiness we seek. My Dog is More Enlightened than I Am opens our eyes to the fact that there are a lot of things we can learn from animals, especially from these loyal furry creatures that will always be there for us.

INTERVIEW ~ Rad-Reader:  I saw that you wrote your book from your blog.  Any reason you chose the year 2012?

 

Joe:  That’s when I started blogging, figured I would start at the beginning.

 

Rad-Reader:  When you first start writing or posting on your blog.  Did you ever think it would take you to publish a book?

 

Joe: No! Never! I’m just so appreciative people seem to enjoy the little stories about life.

 

Rad-Reader:  Did you find your posting/writing helped you as you were writing or as you went back to see what you wrote for the day?

 

Joe:  I went back and updated the information, making sure I noted the circumstances at the time.

 

Rad-Reader:  Were your thoughts done in the morning or just whenever you thought to sit down that day to post?

 

Joe:  I wish I could say I was a disciplined writer, but I’m not. Some were written in the morning, but more in the afternoon or evening after my workday “inspiration.”

 

Rad-Reader:  How did you come up with the catchphrase: Thought to Remember?

 

Joe:  It just evolved. I wanted to share some positive message with each post, so I started collecting them as I went along. By far, those little add-ons are the most popular part of the book and the blog.

 

Rad-Reader:  Did you have an idea that you would touch on so many topics when you first wrote your “Thought to Remember”?

 

Joe:  No. I just wanted to add something positive to each post, even if the post itself wasn’t.

 

Rad-Reader:  The few entries that you had that dealt with music: “Beer with Jesus” – “The Wonder” by Dion – That whole section about Dion was something I did not know. (Though I did know the song & “The Day the Music Died” – I don’t know what we were to get from that, but I got redemption?

 

Joe:  I  can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but I do appreciate good music. It’s part of my life. Good music — whatever genre — evokes an emotion. Dion’s story was a story of redemption. A lot of country music is also about redemption or at least pointing to redemption. The entire book is really my journey of blessing, grace, and redemption. Music is part of that.

 

Rad-Reader:  Was it your idea to put the last one in about the expiration dates with food?  Side note:  I thought the same thing.  My wife and daughter keep telling me, NO!

 

Joe:  I drive my kids crazy. I guess you could say I’m a hoarder so I ended up collecting food — especially spices — for recipes, using just a teaspoon or so and just adding the remaining container to my collection. I just don’t take life too seriously. As long as it doesn’t smell rancid or have little green fuzz growing, I’m good. Maybe it’s a guy thing.

 

Rad-Reader:  What does your family think about your daily writings becoming public?

 

Joe:  They’re generally supportive. Although they may be the focus of a particular story, they know I  would not publicly embarrass them. I love them bunches.

 

Rad-Reader:  Do you encourage them to do the same in order to get some peace or clarity during difficult times?

 

Joe:  I do. My oldest daughter actually set up my blog because I was procrastinating. She currently blogs and is in the process of writing her own book.

Rad-Reader: You have five children, 18 grandchildren, and three great-granddaughters. Do you get to see them much?

 

Joe: Not nearly enough. I’m actually expecting great-granddaughter #4 in the fall. We try to get together at least once a year, although we’ve missed the past few years. December 2017 was spent with me on the road visiting each of them and their families in New York, Ohio, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Massachusetts, with side stops in Indiana, Florida, and New Jersey to visit with friends and other relatives.

The kids weren’t particularly happy with my decision to retire to Maine so I was instructed to Messenger them every day to let them know I was fine. I guess they thought I couldn’t take care of myself by myself. We stay connected throughout the day with Messenger so we stay pretty close and try to help each other out through any “calamities” of the day … even if it’s a simple “I love you!”

 

Rad-Reader:  What is your next project and when is it coming out?

 

Joe:  I’m really excited. In March 2018 I published a novella — Heaven Shining Through — based on a “community” writing project that ended up being a community of one. It was met well, but often with the comment, “It should have been a novel.” So I started writing a novel based on the novella, “My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through.”  It is available at Amazon. The actual release date was June 30, 2019, and a Facebook Live book launch was July 2  and archived on my Facebook author page, @wisdomfromafather

Joe,
