With regards to some of my "controversial-themed"
* * *
* * *
The following works (in their original form) are banned or have been banned by certain retailers -- my note to readers/visitors is below.
My style of erotic fiction focuses on intimacy and relationship dynamics; erotic literature has nothing to do with explicitness (which differentiates it from pornography)].
With future projects (erotic and non-erotic), I'll up the drama with the storylines and cut the drama with retailers ;)
Thank you for your patience.
P.S. While I understand certain themes are a sensitive issue for retailers, I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how and why consensual sexual activity between siblings/relatives is more offensive than themes such as cannibalism and murder (graphically depicted).

"EROTICA" IS NOT "PORN"!

"I just came across your web site while on a Google search for
Asian photos. I like what I saw on your web site and I am interested
in what you re publishing. I hope that you will add me to your subscription
list. Also I am opposed to book banning in what ever form it comes regardless
of the "reason" given or the "excuse" explanation. Keep up your good
work. You will gain more than you lose from being banned. Have a wonderful
day. I wish you much success."
"Thanks to you, I now know to avoid those genres altogether just
in case I fall foul of draconian censorship. Luckily I haven't gone
down any dead ends. I have not attempted either of those genres yet.
Incest does seem to be a very popular theme on sites like Literotica.
Personally I don't like it. I have a sister and I have never had any
fantasies about her. Other people's sisters are always much more appealing.
Twin sisters doubly so. Oh, come to think of it, I suppose a threesome
with two twin sisters would be a form of incest. But I don't draw the
"Thank you for taking the time to read my email. Good day and
happy holidays. Oh, one more quick note, Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf
is available in many different formats. I imagine the major retailers
justify this by claiming it's a "historical document."
"I'm sorry to hear about the red tape with the major retailers.
Itís probably safe to say that incest (including consensual), is hitting
too close to home for many, so letís not even acknowledge this topic:
itís too real. Anyway, thank you for everything you do and
have stood/stand up for. (Gotta run, wife is calling for me!) LOL Sincerely,
A Female Reader/Customer PS: My Dad is an awesome kisser! ;-) AndÖ.."
"Your book or ebook Wicked Lovely, is so wonderful. I
have always wondered what it would be like to be in that situation and
do fantasize about an imaginary sister that I could just sneak around
with and move out of country with her so we could be a complete couple.
Please do write more stories of this nature. Just to let you know something,
the more real it seems the better it can be. I hope your weekend will
be well too. Thank you for your good writing skills."
"I do not find it at all difficult to define pornography / obscenity.
. .to me, these are some of the elements that comprise obscenity: War,
Genocide, Bigotry, Discrimination, Hypocrisy, Child Abuse. . ."
"Retailers find it perfectly feasible to screen and censor the
content of self-published erotica, playing self-appointed morality policeman
and forbidding certain subject matter long after the courts have renounced
censorship of literature, and yet when it comes to preventing outright
theft/plagiarism, somehow that's just too difficult for them to manage."
"It is awful and petty that so much is banned. I'm an adult and
I can decide for myself what I want to read. Blurbs are there for a
reason!!! I HATE it when writers feel forced to alter their genre."

Have something to say? Let me know!
