Poke Around

I’ve uploaded the new covers for the Atlantean’s Quest series. I’m really pleased with how they came out. Hopefully Amazon will be, too and I’ll end up off the ADULT FILTERED naughty list. Can’t remember if I mentioned it or not, but Atlantean’s Quest 3.5: Atlantean Heat was censored filtered because there was a sliver of boob showing. It was actually my favorite Atlantean cover. (See before and after examples below.)


I had no idea the book had been filtered until I checked on SALES RANK EXPRESS and saw the bright red ADULT stamped next to the title. When your book gets labeled as ADULT, it becomes practically unsearchable on Amazon. So you could type in Atlantean’s Quest and NEVER have Atlantean Heat show up in the search.

As you can imagine, finding my book on that list was disappointing, especially since it’s smack dab in the middle of my series. This seems to happen to Indie books more than traditionally published books. I did a search for some of the raciest writers I know and NONE of their books were labeled ADULT. Not fair, but no one ever said that life was.

What are you going to do? It’s Amazon’s playground. They can do whatever they want. It won’t stop me from doing business with them and it certainly won’t stop me from buying stuff from them. My solution to the situation was to have the entire Atlantean’s Quest series redesigned. I hope you like what the lovely Dar Dixon did as much as I do. 🙂
