As of this date, Amazon has banned and blocked from publication four of my books. Kobo has also blocked four. It’s amusing that they haven’t been able to agree on which items were objectionable; they’ve both chosen to ban different texts on their respective sites. So far other retailers haven’t given into the fuss but there’s no telling whether that will last. I did attempt to edit and resubmit to Amazon but they were having none of it. Corinna’s just too hot to handle.
It’s a bit of a bummer, I’ll admit. Amazon did more for me in reaching a larger audience than other sites have. But the hypocrisy, inconsistent policing of policies and willingness to ask “How high?” when sensationalist media says “Jump!”, I am hesitant to continue publishing there. Maybe I’ll change my mind as time goes on, but since this Indie erotica witch hunt seems to crop up on a yearly basis, somehow I doubt it.
And it was a terrific Christmas. Family and loved ones, light and laughter, and the chocolate covered cherries and Dad-protected meal recipes that I have missed so very much.
I also missed writing, so after a good night’s rest, I’ve jumped right back to it.
As of now, Into the Dreaming City stands at close to 8000 words and has only two more scenes to write before I can consider it finished. It will probably be my first post-New Year release, so keep an eye out!
Escape from Faery weighs in at 23,511 words and will not be done for a long time but I like how it’s shaping up! This one might break the erotica boundaries by being slightly more about story and characters than sex but frankly, I kind of like that. Not that my more naughty readers should fret– there’s plenty of explicit spice to keep you turning the pages. There are just more pages in between incidents. 😉
I’m also poised to hold another giveaway on the EROTICA group on Goodreads. If you’re a member, watch for a post to go up tomorrow night– the theme will be Naughty Resolutions!
