After an exchange of emails between me and Amazon, I received the following message:
Thank you for your message. Please be advised that we are in the process of removing the following Kindle titles from all Amazon sites:
The Adventures of Belinda McFate: The Literary World's Weakest Female Character! [Kindle Edition], ASIN: B008LV2JTK
It typically takes 2-3 days for a listing to disappear once it has been removed from our catalog. We trust this will bring this matter to a close.
This subject is finally closed and though it was a hard lesson to learn about reality, I'm glad I learned it now.
I wish to reiterate that all my short stories on Smashwords will be permanently removed on Tuesday, July 31st. Yew Manor and Coventry House will remain available for sale.
I would also like to thank my fellow writers, authors, friends, and editors for their words of support and valuable advice.
