    Thanks, for the heads up. I’m about to publish my first E book thru KDP. This is good information to know.

    There seems to be a “whatever it takes” attitude regarding self-publishing. My first book is out, and I am out promoting it, but some of the strategies used by some are suspect.

    Good for Amazon to crack down.
