So, a little over five months ago, I contacted Amazon to ask them about the ban on Better the Devil You Know. Basically I asked if the faux pas I committed was categorizing it under “erotica” when it really should be under “horror”. I got a form letter reply back saying that they would look into it and not to ask again about it.

I didn’t think I would ever hear back, honestly.

Then, yesterday, I got an email from someone there saying that if I put only under “horror” they would accept it.

Huzzah!

Questions about Better the Devil You Know

Since I’ve received numerous emails over the weekend about Devil, I thought I’d lay out the answers here :)

Q: Why is there a paperback but no ebook on Amazon?

A: Two different review processes. Paperbacks go through Createspace and they don’t seem to scan for content, only technical specs. Once Devil was accepted in paperback, I figured I’d try for the ebook too – originally I wasn’t going to bother because I didn’t think it would pass review. I was right. The file was rejected because it violates their submission guidelines.

Q: I thought Smashwords accepted everything. Why is Devil banned there?

A: After some email exchanges with the Smashwords team, it was decided that it violates their guidelines. Their exact wording was: 

“We have been reviewing your book in greater detail, and the decision was that it is not a good fit for us. It will remain unpublished on Smashwords.”

Why? Too murdery.

Q: So where can I get it?

A: See this post for all the links :)

 

A huge thanks to everyone who’ve been sharing links/recommended Devil! Much appreciated :) I’m very happy that it’s getting to readers!

Better the Devil You Know – a new psychosexual horror novel by Bey Deckard

Novel (40 000 words)
Genre(s): Horror, torture, paranormal, serial killer

Tags: graphic torture, forced incest, rape

Byron is tall, handsome, well spoken, wealthy, and has outstanding taste in wine and food. You’ll be impressed by his impeccable attire and eloquence in conversation, ranging from Baroque art to the newest advances in pharmacology. With his charming smile and elegant manners, Byron truly is the perfect date… and who doesn’t love a man who appreciates opera?

What’s the catch, you ask?

Just this: if Byron finds you suitable, he will subject you to utterly depraved forms of torture.

No, I’m not talking about S&M.

Byron will mutilate, rape, and then kill you. Don’t think that you will survive the encounter, because you won’t. He has a perfect record.

Intrigued? Would you like me to arrange a rendezvous? It has to be in the next few days because he’s leaving on a trip south to much warmer climes, and his calendar will be completely full.

Yes? Very good. I will make a reservation for two under the name of Smith.

Who am I? I’m Gloria, his personal assistant.

†††

Ok – I really hate trigger warnings. I do. However, I really need to stress that this book is not for everyone. Hell… I don’t even know who this book is for. Me… yes. But you? Will you like it? Maybe like is the wrong word. Or… is it? :)

I’ve been sort of vague about what the book is about. That’s because it’s hard to talk about it without spoilers. I’ve had a few questions:

Is it romance? No.

Is it m/m? It’s only male/male in the sense that it features organs traditionally thought of as male.

What is it? A psychosexual, paranormal thriller.

Read an excerpt

Still want it? You have two options at the moment. You can buy it (Mobi, ePub, or PDF) via Payhip (promise that it’s secure) or you can buy it through All Romance eBooks. I’m still waiting on the verdict from Smashwords, but it doesn’t look good.  Oct. 1 update: officially BANNED at Smashwords. We won’t even talk about Amazon. Oct 4. update: ebook BANNED at Amazon but NOT the paperback (So how do I get it for my kindle?)

Feb. 14, 2017 update: Amazon has relented and reversed the ban… as long as it’s listed solely under “horror” :)
