In a surprise twist, Amazon agreed with me that my books should not be banned. My account has been restored and you can buy my stuff again.

Wow, this is great news. I am emotionally exhausted but still, great news. I do need to look into alternate outlets as a safety precaution in case this happens again.

Thanks for every one’s support. The messages and comments really kept my spirits up in what was a super anxious time for me.

Yesterday, Amazon sent me a form letter telling me that “Fight in the Sex Arena” violated their standards. Since this was my second offense, they deleted my kindle publishing account, erased my ebooks and decided to keep all the royalties owed to me.

They didn’t say what was offensive about my book. Was it heart-racing combat followed by humiliating sex? Was it my frequent abuse of the word, “thrust”? Was it the many, many, MANY scenes where the Cocksquid violates the player? Amazon won’t tell me so I can only assume my erotica was so hot that I killed someone.

This is rather depressing news. My Amazon books earned me on average about $500 a month, which was no small thing. I spent that money on Patreon, comics, cover art, bills and so much porn.

It feels a lot like getting fired, except I am fired from a job I love and plan to keep on doing. I will keep writing and I will find another outlet to sell through, but the emotional impact is still there. It sucks.

I have sent an email to KDP support asking for clarification, but my experience has been that they rarely respond. I will keep you updated on what they say so that other authors can learn.

Thank you for your support and patience as I consider what to do next,

Last week I got laid out with a nasty cold. The doctor insists that it was a cold but I know that it was really some sort of super-virus designed to kill humanity and make me stop writing porn. Well, it succeeded in stopping my writing but I was able to cough it out of my system and save the entire world. You are welcome.

One thing I was able to do while coughing and sniffling was do a whole lot of editing on my Sex Arena book. I have finished 81% of the third draft and should wrap it up this week. Something about being sick made it really easy to spot missing words and how one character’s eyes kept changing from blue to grey and back to blue again.

A casualty of my cold/super-virus was this month’s Vaquel story. It is really hard to think sexy when you are studying the color of your snot. Instead of a story this month, Vaquel will return on the first Wednesday of February.
