BANNED BOOKS!

With regards to some of my "controversial-themed" material
[I write in a range of genres; not always controversial ;)].

* * *

2011: The book banning incident is mentioned on
TeleRead
and The Register UK.

2013: The banning continues (as reported by Selena Kitt and The Digital Reader).

The following works (in their original form) are banned or have been banned by certain retailers -- my note to readers/visitors is below.

JESS'S NOTE TO READERS/CUSTOMERS/VISITORS:

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).

UPDATE / May 2013:

"EROTICA" IS NOT "PORN"!

made--and how YOU can help :)

E-MAILS FROM READERS/ETC.
(your anonymity is ensured):

"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."
-- X123 (a fellow-dragon-lover), July 2011

"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 line."
-- X571 (from London, UK), March 2011

"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."
-- XQ (Mr. Gemini), Dec 2010

"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.."
-- E-mail from a female reader/customer

"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."
-- X9, June 2011

"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. . ."
-- DWC (writer/attorney), Jan 2012

"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."
-- Esmeralda Greene, 2012 (comment on Digital Journal)

"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."
-- Ms. MNS, June 2014 (Australia)
