As a self published author, not having your book available to buy on Amazon is a big problem. After five years since Rise of the Youpreneur was first shared with the world, Chris received an email from Amazon KDP informing him that they would be terminating his account... for no reason at all. 

After digging around online, trying to make sense of the situation, Chris soon realized that this has happened to a lot of self published authors. In this episode, Chris walks through the timeline from first being notified to the current status of his appeal, what he’s done to stay proactive, and why he’s thankful to have built his business on his online home that he owns, and not rented land.
