So many questions...and not many answers. Thank you to all of you who have written me or commented here on this matter. I wish I had more information for you. The best I have is that Ebay considers the book "misfiled"...it should be under their Mature Audiences section of their site. Guess I really don't have a problem with that...but then why aren't ALL the books there? Is that a better placement for them? At the moment, it appears to be a rather selective and subjective application of their code.
I've decided I cannot let it get to me. EC is looking into it from a legal standpoint and I'm going to wait to see what happens on that end. In the meantime, I'm going to continue writing hot, sexy romances (okay, I never stopped
But that's what's wonderful about a free society...each person has the opportunity to try whatever taste they wish. I can go down the street and choose between a Mexican, Chinese and Italian restaurant...why can't I choose what kind of sex I want to write about? I'm very lucky I'm protected by a Constitution that, so far, still guarentees me that right to free expression. Are there people who would like to curb that right? You bet!
Oh, dear...I seem to have climbed onto a soapbox that really has little to do with Ebay and their removal of my book. They are a private company and have the right to allow...or disallow...items from their Internet Garage Sale. I understand that and respect it. It is my hope, however, that they will examine their own policies and not let censorship creep in their back door.
As for me, I'm going to continue to write...and watch.
Till later...play safe!
