Customer Question

I put a memoir on Kindle in 1996 called, What A Ride. I gave a bank account number and haven't received any money. The book is not to be confused with same book, different cover, with added photos, that was put on in 2014. But I have not received proceeds from 1996 -2014.

I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience.

I need to gather some more information from you in order to help. I'm not really sure what it is you are asking. There were no Kindles in 1996. Can you explain again what it is you are asking me please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. It was on Amazon e books

It had a pic of me in an orange tee on cover
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

I still don't understand. You stated: I put a memoir on Kindle in 1996 called, What A Ride. The Kindle wasn't invented in 1996.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. It was on Amazon E books. Mistake. Not Kindle
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Ahh. So you published a memoir called What A Ride and you are wondering why you haven't received any income from it?

How many copies have you sold?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's been since 1996 through 2014.
Did you find the book?
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

I believe I have found it, yes. It does not have any reviews.

How many copies have you sold?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It does have a review, by Donald Von Wiedenman
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

I mean customer reviews. Amazon reviews. You have been selling a book for close to 20 years on Amazon. Have you ever received any sales confirmations from them?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think maybe one or two early on. Nothing else. Did you find the book???
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

I see a book by someone named Anthony. Is that your book?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. The cover is me in an orange t shirt
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Then no, you will have to link it to me of give me the ISBN please.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. I don't have either. We deleted this book from Amazon when we published the updated one.
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. I'm really not sure I can help you. You have a Amazon publishing account I assume. When you sell a book, you get a confirmation as well as a regular statement.

Do you have ANY correspondence from Amazon from 1996 to 2014?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. This isn't going anywhere. You can't find it. Bye. Thank you
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

You are going to have to contact Amazon directly. I'm sorry.

Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

Even though you published a book, it does not mean that you received any profit from it because there is no guarantee that it will sell regardless of how many years it was out there. You mentioned that you did not have any records of the book selling on Amazon so it is very likely that the book has not sold at all. Is there any reason that you feel now that you missed out on profit after the past 18+ years?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I sold many. I have a huge network of friends and family.
Please end this .
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.

Please end what? Did you still want help on this issue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Absolutely not. Thank you
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.

Okay thanks
