My letter to the Amazon Nazis...


I received this email from you... to me

We’re contacting you regarding the following book that you have submitted for sale in our Kindle store:
Sinner (ASIN:B004WPP26G)
During our review process, we found that your book contains content that is in violation of our content guidelines. As a result, we will not be offering this book for sale.
You may reply to if you believe this decision has been made in error.
Best regards,
Title Submission"

What exactly is the violation here? Why do you allow these books below and not mine?

1XXXX- woman who is tied up and forced to submit
2XXXX – "Included are compelling narratives of foodsex, phonesex, musclebear prisonsex, dental blood, enemas, scat, piss, doublefucking, fisting and dildo initiation, mudsex, bestiality, crucifixion, sex in costumes, plenty of BDSM (bondage / discipline / sadomasochism), and a dungeonful more."
3XXXX - forced submision
4XXXX- schoolgirl sex

Please explain how my book is worse than these books. It appears to me that you are picking and choosing who you will ban. That smacks at inequality and I have to wonder why you are choosing my book as being a 'violation' over others? Please re-instate my book or remove the ones that are worse than mine. Freedom of speech on Amazon appears to be ok for some and not for others. I await your response and explanation.

***removed the name of books in my email for the blog because I can and why give them publicity?

It does seem a bit arbitrary, doesn't it? Did they reply?

Not yet - it takes them 2 business days. I shall follow up and ask them in 2 days cause I'm irritating like that...
