I didn’t know Amazon worked  this way… I sure could use the reviews. I know there’s enough people who bought it. Review review people!

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I wasn’t aware of these numbers. Interesting.

    Problem is, I was at the >50 mark for some of my books, then Amazon starting deleting reviews they deemed were from friends. Now, I’m left with thirty-something reviews for said books.

    This is very interesting! As for reviews deemed ‘from friends and family’. I have a review on one that states he knew me when I was just starting to work on the first book in my series…goes on to give a glowing review and 5 stars. They left it up and took a 4 star rating down that actually ragged a little on the book. I think there’s some sort of algorithm but I have no idea.

  3. I didn’t realize that accumulating reviews helped in those ways. Thanks for passing that on.
