ChuYang Basically told me to report on my own, that's it. That's why I'm asking other people to help cause I have no one else.
WTF? Did he even try to help you? What good are they if they can't even give you advice or aid on something like this? Honestly, I know editors work hard, but that's a brush off. I can't recall if you contacted Amazon. Too lazy to backtrack.
This is what one author did that helped him reclaim his work. Took 20 days at the time. You'll need an Amazon account. I've adjusted the steps to reflect this environment.

- This page takes to you all Amazon locale pages. Click the page for your location.
- sign into your Amazon account.
- List yourself as the "Rights Owner". As you're still a shareholder of your works.
- When it asks for ASIN/ISBN-10 -OR- Product URL,
that's your Webnovel book link Realised that's actually the offenders book link they're after eek. kitty sorry.
- Complete and submit the rest of the form.
You should receive a response email from the Amazon copyrights department.
- Your scenario is this one: For a product you never listed on Amazon.
- They'll likely ask you to do this, "Reply to the notification you received and let us know that you have never listed the reported product. We will investigate to determine if an error occurred."
- do this or what they ask in your reply back.
Amazon will work the claim.
It may take between 2 - 20 days for investigation and processing. They'll take down the offending books and deal with them. What they won't be able to do is remove the book page unfortunately. At least those books won't be for sale.
EDIT: Also, do you still have your email from your editor with the contract attached? Keep that handy, just in case Amazon needs further evidence of ownership.
Hope that helps.
