Big Brother Amazon
Several erotica indie authors (including at least one who's popular and makes a ton of money as an indie) are reporting that they've had some books pulled from Amazon. Right now Amazon seems to be removing titles involving incest. (I'd guess maybe there are some readers clicking on the "report content as inappropriate" link in the wake of the pedophilia book controversy). But if you write anything with sex in it, this is worth paying attention to-- Amazon can, after all, pull anything they want, and it might not be much of a step from deleting incest to deleting anything with sexual content. This is one good reason not to have all your eggs in one basket as an author.
