From CH's Facebook page:

To those of you who have purchased the KINDLE version of my latest book on the Madeleine ‪#‎McCann‬ case:

For some reason, KDP (Kindle publishing) has started removing italics and words with dashes (-) from their formatting, which makes for some pretty irritating reading. Apparently this has affected my book (again, just the KINDLE version), and dashes/italics did not show up in the final product. That means words such as "three-years-old" showed up in the KINDLE version as "threeyearsold," which is absolutely infuriating to me.

This has attracted less-than-stellar (see what I did there) reviews, from readers who (for some silly reason) believe that I am stupid enough to smash three words together without dashes. I do apologize for the formatting errors in the KINDLE version, but they are beyond my control.

HOWEVER, the paperback version of the book has absolutely NO errors of this kind. (see photo) Again, I apologize for the formatting errors that were found in the KINDLE version, which are thanks to Amazon KDP's formatting for KINDLE. The only remedy I see for this is to revise the entire manuscript to have spaces, instead of dashes, (which still doesn't look good), so that these words aren't smashed together thanks to the removal of my dashes. This will take quite some time, but those of you who bought it on Amazon for KINDLE, won't be affected. It will refresh to the updated copy automatically without you having to repurchase, or feeling like you wasted money on something with formatting errors.

Chelsea's reply does not mention her actual factual errors or inconsistent sloppy  style. The problem with dashes does not explain running together of words that would not have had dashes between them anyway. As she has published before, she would have been aware of the systems quirks.
