    So what percentage of Amazon/Goodreads reviews of indie fiction are fake?

    So when it comes to self published e-fiction I'm thinking less than 5 percent of all reviews are authentic. It seems to me that between sock puppets, friends and families, supposedly unpaid "Super reviewers," and "Marketing agencies," I can't imagine that more than there's probably five or six honest positive reviews of indie fiction on all Amazon. Am I that far off base? And if you decide to self publish are deceitful reviews just part of the game?
