Yep, it’s true. Amazon.com has decided that all any any books about or by LGBTA folk are “adult content” — the equivalent of pornography. Hence, they’ve removed the sales rankings for those books. Hence those books are tougher to find when searching for books on Amazon.
This is regardless of the books’ sexual or any other content.
So I’m joining in the Google bombing on Amazon Rank. Read about what a Google bombing means in this post about this stupidity at the Smart Bitches/Trashy Books blog. Include the hashtag #amazonfail in your Twitters. Read how it’s affecting LGBTQ authors at Kelley Eskridge’s & Nicola Griffith’s blog and the other pages they link too. And let those idiots at Amazon know how you feel.
