After a widespread change of policy affecting all independent erotica authors, a number of my titles have been banned from All Romance eBooks. ALL my titles have been removed from Bookstrand.
This is due to changes to the Terms of Sales of both sites which prevent the sales of books depicting “pseudo-incest”. This is, in reality, legal and consenting non-blood related sex between adults. Roleplay, in other words. Pure fantasy.
It is unclear at this point how much of this has been enforced by the aforementioned retailers or as a result of Draconican and vague regulations stipulated by Paypal, a merchant for both sites. Either way, it is censorship of perfectly legal material – in short, you are being told what you can and cannot read, even when those books are legal.
It goes without saying that this only seems to be affecting independent erotica authors. No books depicting the censored acts from traditional publishers (and there are plenty) have been removed.
Any customers of Bookstrand will now have to purchase my books at alternative venues. Amazon currently stocks ALL my books without restriction and they can be bought here. Check out some of the titles to see what the fuss was all about!
