The books are in kindle unlimited.

They are borrowing each title a thousand times. Each book is 3000 kenpc of baloney. That's 15$ every borrow and full read.

They are making $15,000 on each title in 24 hours. You are looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars in just those 11 titles in the top 100.

Somehow, this person has managed to create a thousand KU accounts and is actively coordinating them to mass read pages of their KU titles. The scale of this scam is staggering.

They aren't buying the books at all.


Thank you for explaining it.

They have all disappeared from the movers and shakers list

    You can easily publish books with "similar generic covers, similar generic titles, and you could frequently find two or three different copies of an ebook from multiple authors" and it slides right by review.  Because all of Amazon's resources are dedicated to making sure not one nipple slip makes it onto a book cover.
