I was trying to advertise my first novel, Bobby’s Socks – on Amazon.com.
As you will read below, the ad was rejected. Simply read the ad – is it porn?
Of note, I’m willing to spend my money – not a big publishers money – my money. Because I believe in the cause… the story is not dirty, it’s not pornographic. It’s reality.
BUT, Fifty Shades of Grey – no problem – sell that book all day long.
By the way, the character Mr. Grey ends up being a child sexual abuse victim … I guess that’s okay with Amazon.
IF – you want to step up – help me!!
