Everything was fine and I foolishly decided to republish my ebook and change the categories now that I have a better understanding of the market.
It took longer than usual for Amazon to republish the ebook
Apparently it got published into the categories that I asked – because it was showing up in the top 100 best sellers in the new category. THEN sometime later, it was pushed out of the time travel category and into erotica.
Plus they Adult flagged it.So it will not show up in searches unless you specifically go to my author page or search on the book title. That prevents you from seeing it.
AND for my convenience — they don’t have the courtesy to tell you they’ve done this.
Or what the specific objection is.
AND unless you specifically know to ask, they won’t even admit the Adult Flag exists.
This is my ebook. Click on the picture — or — HERE if you want.
See if you think it is so horrible that it needs to be hidden from the general public.
Sigh. Here we go on another 2-3 week oddessy where I keep having to ask what is wrong and they tell me to rewrite and resubmit my book and they will see if it is ok now.
Adult flagging keeps the ebook from showing up in general searches.
I was stupid – I should have left the ebook as it was – I will know better next time.
I really hope that Amazon market share continues to shrink. If they get to the point where they start having to work with their authors instead of doormatting them, things will be better.
