Why Amazon Why?

Ussually, I try to keep my opinions of controversial issues out of my blog, but a rather interesting thing has occured that I have to note. So, upon checking out the Amazon listing of my book "A Guardian's Desire," I have discovered that the ranking is no longer there. I am so not alone in this as many of my colleagues and fellow writers of 'adult'-themed materials have had the same thing happen to them. Due to the stupidity of some Amazon employee, adult books are not being ranked and in some cases aren't even showing up on searches. I am a firm believer that I should be able to search and buy whatever I want. Their censorship is wrong and foul considering those that purchase many adult titles from them. Efforts are in place to fight this idiocy, but I can't believe that in this day and time, readers (and I am an avid one) who spend money at Amazon have to put up with this bullshit.

Please see Amazon Rankings for more info.

This is one more reason why I don't
shop at Amazon. I have a hard time finding books (new or old)with their search engine. They suck big time and are no longer getting my business.


Ps. Happy Easter :)

Thank God, they have resolved this situation and ranks are back up. The ranking system is extremely important to all writers.
