Just thought this was funny and am wondering if it has happened to anyone else...

Got one of those auto-emails from AMAZON.

"Jill Edmondson, thank you for your recent purchases from Amazon.com. Your reviews of these products will help other customers like yourself shop on Amazon.com. Review your recent purchases..."

Therein followed the cover image and link to my latest book (which I have not bought/not downloaded, LOL).

Given Amazon's recent smackdown on reviews in general, I find it hilarious that they've suggested that I review my own book!

This never happened with any of my other titles. Have any of you been nundged to write a review for your own books?

Those are just automated Amazon form emails.  When purchasing, Amazon's algorithms don't differentiate between customer and author. I've gotten plenty of those.

The problem is that there are authors who do self-review (despite how bone-headed of a concept it is) and then use that as a defense "but Amazon told me to do so".  It doesn't exactly help their reputations at places like the Amazon forums.
