Amazon's missing ranking for Gay fiction
When Amazon was asked about the missing rankings they responded to one author with:
In consideration of our entire customer base, we exclude "adult" material from appearing in some searches and best seller lists. Since these lists are generated using sales ranks, adult materials must also be excluded from that feature.
Hence, if you have further questions, kindly write back to us.
Plainly, we are being discriminated against by Amazon, shoved into the backroom.
Not all authors of adult fiction are being targeted but it is widespread and rampant. So if you are looking for rankings and bestseller lists of adult or gay fiction, it looks like you'll need to buy directly from the publisher or hit up B&N.
Hopefully next month MLR Press will have the ability in place to buy ebooks directly from the site and print books soon after that. We getting everything in place for direct sales. We value our readers and now we REALLY like Barnes and Noble.
