Turning lemons into lemonade

BOA reddit promoOkay, maybe I’ve just gotten a little “subreddit crazy” lately… LOL…but I’m going to push this thing out of the nest and see if it flies:

My recent encounter with Amazon hypocrisy has sparked a notion in my head… I’m certainly not the first nor the only erotica author who has gotten a book rejected by the almighty Amazon. Not by a longshot!! So in that vein, I’ve created a little subreddit called  “Banned On Amazon“. (Damn, I still like the sound of that. LOL) This will be a place where authors of any books rejected or removed from Amazon’s pages can come and list their books that have been banned, as well as where they ARE available, and where readers looking for titles too hot for Amazon can come and see if there’s anything among the list that might strike their fancy.

On a recent post on this subject that I placed on one of the subreddits, it was asked if there were any other self-publishing options available besides Amazon for material they deem too immoral or distasteful. I was actually a little shocked and saddened that someone would even have to ask that sort of question. So hopefully this will help get the word out that Amazon is most definitely not the only game in town for those who wish to self-publish.

So, if you are an erotica author (or an author of any other genre as far as that goes) who has been shut out by Amazon due to content or whatever reason, feel free to come in and list your book, place a link to your book and/or webpage or blog, where your titles ARE available, or to get an idea of where to submit them. If you’re a reader who’s on the lookout for over-the-edge erotica that is hard to find due to the various constraints of the big publishers, come in and see what’s available and where.

While sharing your own personal experiences and horror stories is certainly permissible, the main purpose of this subreddit is NOT meant to be a constant barrage of complaints about Amazon!! Rather, this is more about turning a negative into a positive, getting information out to people, and providing another way for authors to promote themselves and their works.

May the wind be at our backs….
