Please, Help!

Amazon has been arbitrarily deleting reviews for indie authors like me. This hurts sales but above all the ability to share our stories and opinions freely.  Derek Blass has started a petition that I ask you sign, not only for me but everyone affected. These are his words:

"Amazon has been able to build a monopoly in the world of selling books. They have employed the fundamental principles of capitalism to achieve that position. With that monopoly, Amazon is now exerting its power against its most vulnerable sellers, independently published authors. Amazon is currently removing customer reviews from books published by indie authors without any notice, and without any explanation. This petition demands that Amazon explain for every author that loses a review (good or bad) why that review was removed, and set forth clear guidelines as to what will and will not be removed in the future." -Derek Blass


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
