This site has been closed down to comply with Amazon’s new policy: no free books may be mentioned by an Amazon Associate or they risk losing all income for that month and possibly forever. In fact, even if the site never mentions a free book, they can lose their entire month’s income if the people they refer to Amazon buy “too many” free books in a month.
If you are going to buy free books at Amazon, please consider clearing your browser cookies before doing so, in order to avoid costing this site or any other affiliate site their income at Amazon (to clear your cookies, press Ctrl-Shift-Delete, then choose Cookies from the page that is displayed).
Feel free to let Amazon know what you think of their new policy (but don’t mention sites by name – they may be penalized; you are probably seeing this same new policy at most book blogger sites across the internet – at least, on any that use the Amazon Associates program).
Although some readers have suggested that the links be posted without an affiliate tag, all this does is pushes any credit for that book to the last affiliate site you have been to. This also applies even if you go to Amazon on your own and enter the book in a search there. That Associate might be me or it may be some other hardworking associate whose site you were at earlier in the day.
Amazon Associates Support has also said that if you post links without tags, even on another site, if they can link you in any way, then they’ll shut down your account. So, there will no longer be be any links to free books at Amazon on any of my sites.
If you are an author, please let the KDP Select team know what you think of this change.
