Facebook Doesn’t Want You to Read This!

Not making this up, folks. Deadman’s Tome HORRGASM, a horror anthology with six titillating tales of provocative horror, cannot be promoted on Facebook. Not only that, but because I somehow circumvented their promotion system, I am banned from using Facebook ads!

Why? Because apparently Facebook deems HORRGASM pornographic, which is odd, because it’s just text. There aren’t any graphic images in the ebook. It’s literally a collection of short stories and nothing more. I will admit that the original cover was graphic, but I even went against my own principles and censored it. But it did not make a difference. I tried talking with a Facebook representative and he told me that Facebook is not a platform for porn and smut. I tried to convince him to read the material, but he never got back with me.

It get’s worse. Apparently, if you try to search for Deadman’s Tome HORRGASM on Amazon it will not show up. It is not even listed, but the book is active on my side. Just what is Facebook and Amazon trying to keep from you? Read it for yourself using this link.

Wouldn’t it be nice if those that pre-ordered Deadman’s Tome Book of Horrors received some sort of recognition, some love, perhaps even a moment to hangout with the authors involved? One trait that most authors share is that we like to talk about our work, and then about ourselves. I imagine it would be quite easy to arrange a private meet up between the authors and pre-order peeps.

Logistically, it would impossible to meet in person. Though, no one would doubt how cool it would be to have drink with the authors involved in the horror anthology. But, we can easily meet up for a private online hangout and have drinks. After all, while it might be depressing to drink alone, you wouldn’t be alone! Now, this private hangout could possibly be banned from YouTube material. Combine a handful of horror authors with dark twisted minds, booze, drugs(?) and a huge ego circle-jerk, and you’ve got yourself a show. Trust me, you wouldn’t want to miss this.

There is one problem. Amazon doesn’t even give me a name or even an email with the preorder. So, we’ll have to got with the honor system. I know the number of pre-orders but you’ll have to tell me if you pre-ordered.

All you have to do is let me know in the comments section or send me a tweet with #DTpreorder at @MrDeadmanDT And you’ll receive the golden ticket!

America Still Loves Smut-lite

On August 5th, 2015, I became suddenly curious as I sat comfortably on my couch. I wondered,  then and there, what novels topped Amazon’s all time Best-Selling. I’m not sure why I cared. Maybe, I thought I would discover a new up and coming author. Maybe, I thought I would be impressed with the selection. Better yet, maybe I knew I would find something that would grind my gears.

And as you can see, I did. Apparently, the majority are still obsessed over Fifty Shades of Grey! Which means that majority of America is all about the kinky sex, right? At least, in closet? I suppose, but Fifty Shades isn’t even the cream of smut. It’s highly popular because it is easily accessible yet just barely offensive.

Want to read something really smutty? Read The Chariot of Flesh. I forget the author, some bloke that died of a heroin overdose, but that’s not the point.

The point is how could it be that Fifty Shades is STILL the number one book on Amazon? How could it be that a poorly written, joke of a smut, Twilight spin fanfic beats everything else in popularity?

That’s just retarded. I know we’re supposed to not use the dreaded R word as it offense, but when the majority vote with dollars to make Fifty Shades #1 again it is exactly that.

Am I jealous? Am I green with envy? Well, sort of, because Fifty makes it seem so easy. Erotica existed long before Fifty, but then Fifty Shades comes along and becomes a sensation! Why? How?

There is better erotica out their both in content and in prose, yet they don’t even come close to Fifty’s success.

Let me know what you think. What’s your reaction to this?
