Well Color Me Annoyed

Stronghold was submitted to Amazon last night and I got an email this morning say that it's now available for purchase... but when I clicked on the link it said that the requested web page didn't exist.  And when I tried to search for it on Amazon, it didn't come up as an option.

The webpage that is used to see all my author stuff says it's available...

So I don't know wtf's going on.  I can't help but wonder if it has something to do with the whole Amazon banning erotica thing and picking on indie authors or if it really is just some kind of technical problem going on with their site.  I filled out their contact form and it says they're supposed to get back to me within 24 hours, so here's hoping.

I really will do my best to get this worked out before I go on vacation... and hopefully I don't end up having to hate Amazon.

Keep posted on the blog / twitter for updates.

  1. Depending on your cover, title and blurb, it could be that Amazon has slapped an adult tag on it. This makes it invisible to search engines unless you search specifically in the Kindle store section. If you still have trouble write to me and I'll tell you how I handle this.

    1. Unfortunately that didn't work either =/ But the blurb and cover are available on the Stronghold Tab of my blog here - http://goldeniangel.blogspot.com/p/stronghold.html I can't see why any of that would give it an adult tag anyway. But even trying to click on the link they sent me in the email that said it's available now isn't working. Argh.
