Submission + - Amazon Kindle is trying to rip me off on my eBook 3

Orion Blastar writes: "I wrote an ebook back in March 2012 on Kindle. It is original and I started writing it in 2003. It is not the best writing and got a bad review.

But recently Amazon Kindle emailed me and said my ebook was not original and was available for free on the Internet. I published it to Kindle, Nook, and Lulu. It is original writing and a short story and not available for free on the Internet and nobody can lay claim to it but me. But why has Kindle targeted my ebook?

I heard other indie authors get targeted as well. America The Enslaved: The Neurochip is my original writing and the protagonist Orion Blastar I have written about since at least 2003. I had hoped to write a series of ebooks, but if Amazon Kindle deletes it, what can I do? My only crime is that I am not a very good writer, but this takes away my only source of income I can earn as I am disabled.

Any other Kindle book writers having this problem and what can be done for it?"

A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
