Amazon banned Her Client

Yes, my faithful readers. This morning, I received an email that Amazon banned Her Client, the first book in the Her Client Series. I don’t get it. It was initially published and offered for sale on Amazon for the past eight years, but suddenly, they reviewed it and decided to ban it.

The same thing happened in September of 2021 when they banned the second book in the series, leaving 1 and 3 in place.

Why they suddenly decided to unpublish the book on me is unknown. Amazon claims it violates its “content guidelines for appropriateness.” Yet, I know it passed those guidelines at least twice when I first published it and again a year later. I don’t remember exactly when the second review occurred, but that’s okay.

I learned over the years that there is no appeal process for this ruling, and without lots of sales, it’s impossible to get it published again without a major rewrite. In my opinion, a rewrite that will pass their guidelines with strip the story from the emotions of the characters. My readers know what I am talking about. I strive hard to get inside the heads of my characters, protagonists and antagonists alike. It’s the why they do what they do.

So what to do to counter

Since now that Amazon banned Her Client, the only story left in the series is book 3, Her Essentia, I took a preemptive step. Anticipating Amazon would also ban book 3, I unpublished the story on Amazon. However, I left the print edition in place, since right now, I know of no other place to deliver the print edition to my readers.

The good news is that you can still read the story on your eBook reader or even Amazon’s Kindle. How’s that, Amazon? You only have to go to my website for the alternate links to the books. I have updated the links on my website for the stories to point to where you can get the stories.

As an added bonus, for a limited time, you can read book 1, Her Client for free. That’s right. There’s no charge. It’s been that way for the past eight years. The other two books are just $0.99 each. Read the entire trilogy for only $1.99. Read the stories today.

Here’s the direct link on my website. Please check it out. You can even read reviews from verified readers who posted positive reviews on the stories.

After reading these books or any of my others, please send me a note. I would love to hear from you.

Do you really know him?

The Breakup

Do you really know him? I have asked myself that question many of times when I was dating, engaged, hearing about my daughter’s’ date(s) and more recently playing a jurist from my couch as I watch Dateline and 48 hours!

The Breakup Upright BookThis topic came back to the forefront of my mind as I read Richard Verry’s new novella, ‘The Breakup’.

Ginny is presented to us as she leaves work and goes home to get ready for a date with Doug. She is hoping and even expecting a marriage proposal. She is so way off as he has other ideas.

He engages her and surprises her with his detail of brutality. His desire to add her to his “trophies” scares her enough to beg for her life and the reader begins to question his lack of compassion as it relates to her. He is so consumed by his own sexual needs and fantasies, that this escapade has the reader thinking that Doug is heartless and questions how he could do this to Ginny. There are sexual needs fulfilled on both sides yet the story brings me back to my original question.

I know life and choosing a life partner is a risk. Yet aren’t there some signals that one may see that are ‘red flags’? Is he a loner? Is he too good to be true? If the answer is yes, than you are warned that it must be and to keep your guard up.

Ginny fell hard for Doug and she was rewarded in such a brutal, horrific way. Her pleasure was short-lived and the end was unexpected. The reader, meaning me, hoped that had she won his heart and he would change his plans accordingly. I was surprised that his own needs won out and that his feelings for Ginny were part of a game. It’s not a game I want to be part of and yet I know it happens.

If you liked Richard Verry’s novella, ‘Her Client’, this is a must read for you. Sit back and enjoy the roller coaster ride and ask yourself the same question, ‘Do you really know him’?
