Why the fake reviews?
Authors want good reviews from readers or book reviewers.
The problem with such deals payment is accepted by certain reviewers and fake reviews are written for many books.
I learned that Amazon is cracking the system of fake reviews received daily by Fiver.com.
The five dollar fee paid for reviews is frustrating and false advertising for Amazon.com
All reviews can't be honest in five star reviews.
There has been over a thousand individuals on Fiver.com who offered their services for fake reviews. Most reviews are not what it is.
Authors want to earn from their books but should go about it in an honesty way.
The five star reviews encourage buyers to purchase the book in need and any good review is helpful to the buyer.
You know you have published and if your book is not worthy to readers you deserve a negative review.
Book reviews written for a specific book that is not good enough and it receives that five star rating you know you are fooling yourself.
No matter how much you paid for the fake five star rating, your book is not worthy to readers and that is what matters most for the author.
Anyone can post a review, they must buy your book, or free download to read and leave a review.
When it states ''Amazon Verified Purchase,'' then you know the book was bought and read.
You have proper evidence of the purchase of your book.
If you downloaded for free Amazon will know that too.
It becomes suspicious when your friends and relatives leave a review.
Fake reviews are removed and if reviews are sent from the same computer.
You can't always trust the four and five star reviews, especially when authors get their friends and relatives to write that review.
I am glad Amazon is cracking down the system and getting to those involved in such scams. It is not good for the system or for self-published writers.
Approach honest people and who have a name to post your book reviews.
You want to be famous and think you can cheat the system.
The fake reviews don't help you or Amazon book stores.
The publishing market is competitive that doesn't mean you should find the easy way out, and cheat with fake reviews.
Positive reviews increase the sales of your book, but if your book is not good enough then you are cheating yourself in this process.
Fake reviews are a fraud. Authors should be held liable if they paid for their five star reviews.

The situation has deteriorated!

Amazon relies on honest reviews.
Quality products deserve the best ratings.

People are misled with fake reviews.
Sometimes the bad reviews are just from the spiteful beings.
Reviews make people want to return their products back to Amazon.
You ask people for reviews and expect the best reviews.
Honestly, I feel if someone wants to leave a review they are most welcome. I don't ask people to leave good reviews it is up to them on what they choose to write.
When people get paid to review your work they write whatever they wish and don't care of how it affects the system.
The favorable reviews reach a good standard but the author fails to see their failures in their work produced.
The good rating sells the product and when the buyer is taken in by the five star rating, it is sad to know the buyer is not satisfied afterward.
Reviews are of benefit to shoppers and cheating with good reviews to avoid the bad reviews, is not the way to succeeding in the writing world.
I reviewed many books on Amazon.com, and each review was an honest one.
Short written reviews in most cases are false.
Book reviews are for authors to know where they stand with their newly published books.
The fair description and summary does play a good part of books published on Amazon stores.
Your purpose is to generate sales. The blurbs are not always as helpful to the reader's eye.
Long and informative reviews show a big-plus for authors.
Most reviews without purchasing the product is an issue to Amazon.
A person who read the full manuscript or downloads for free is not a problem.
Anyone reviewing a product should be honest about it.
The cheats on reviews spoils the honest reviews.
Article writing is different to than that of Book publishing and the reviews, or comments received on each should be of help to the author. Cheating on reviews or comments is not a good response for the author's platform.
Most of Amazon top reviewers won't get back to you. I have emailed many top reviewers and only a few got back to me.
Those who write in your genre will get back to you and you should email reviewers who enjoy reading your type of books.
Most reviewers have genre preferences, so you’re more likely to peak their interests. First see what is of interest to the reviewer before emailing that person.
I understand the need to be polite and respectful and to do your research prior to approaching a reviewer. The reviewer feels they are doing the author a favor by leaving reviews on their books.
When content is king the author needs to give their best to readers.
The reviewer and the author need to benefit from this experience.
Authors shouldn't beg a reviewer to leave a review, it sounds weak and negative to be in such situations.
Authors shouldn't apply pressure on reviewers either.
Politeness is required for both from the author and the reviewer. You got to understand that.
Provide an honest review and help out in a good manner.
Writers don't get reviews easily.
The new network called Kindred Readers is a helpful site for getting book reviews not launched as yet. Hopefully soon this site will be of help to many authors.
People fail to adhere to the rules or guidelines of any site.

Honest reviews are more useful than fake reviews and it has been going on for a while with Amazon stores.
When you ask for a book review doesn’t ask for positive reviews leave that up to the reviewer.
People's opinions vary, and all five star reviews look suspicious so, keep that in mind.
