For no reason at all, Facebook had suspended me from posting in all groups until Nov. 21st. This means I can’t promote my new release in the Book Promotion groups. This affects the success of my new book.
I followed all the group rules and I joined groups that FB suggested to me.
There are no RULES for posting and joining groups. Apparently FB is going over the heads of the promotion group owners and casting some members aside with no excuse or reason.
What constitutes joining too many groups? Facebook has no written information on this nor do they tell anyone in writing how fast or slow you must post during the intervals. Is locking a person up in FB going to get the message to us?
What is the message?
I’m being treated like a spammer. I am not a spammer. I joined groups that allow me to post my book promo. I follow the group rules.
What the hell is going on here?
I found this petition on Change.org.
For the past few weeks, we have found our book community being banned from posting in book groups. Groups that have been created for the purpose of book promotions. Groups that are asking for book links, author promotions, author services, book related events and giveaways.
Authors are being banned because they write romance? A New York Times Best Selling Author was told that she writes porn and therefore was banned. Where are rules and restrictions of this policy?
Since when are authors not allowed to promote themselves on Facebook? Since when did Facebook start censoring romance books? Is Facebook taking a stand against authors, street teams, book promotions, personal assistants and the entire book community?
People are being blocked with no explanation or warning. People’s livelihoods are being affected because Facebook has decided to ban without a reason or explanation. What are the violations? What are the rules? Help us understand.
There has been plenty of porn videos popping up all over the place. In fact two were reported from two different people only for it to come back from the review team that it didn’t go against your restrictions. Since when is deep throating acceptable on Facebook but romance novels are being ostracized?
You give your members an option to create groups. There are groups for everything including BDSM communities for example. Since when did Facebook make the decision to start banning book related activity? This has never been a problem before. In fact the description in most of the book groups, will state what is acceptable to post.
Unless we’ve missed something, there is no announcement from Facebook that has stated that book advertising is not allowed or anything remotely along those lines . So as a book community we would really like some answers as to what the violations are, how to avoid them and the new changes that Facebook has implemented without informing its members. To just ban members without warning for two weeks is absolutely unfair, especially when there is so much unethical goings on throughout the entire website.

Make Me is finally live. I waited for this day and counted the hours until this day showed up for me. Now, it’s here and I can’t promote it on Facebook. I was suspended from Facebook. No warning and no explanation as to what I had done wrong. I wrote to Facebook and no one answered. I have some good friends who are helping me promote it.
Currently, I’m working on a Christmas story in Russia for Brennen and Dmitri. The new book brings a big surprise at the end. I hope you like it.

Russian mobster Dmitri Dubrovsky and his ex-rent boy husband Brennen are hiding out, along with extended family in a remote cabin in a German forest. Living in a small cabin is taking its toll on the couple. The entire group’s safety is Dmitri’s responsibility, and the pressure of meeting all their needs means he and Brennen don’t spend enough alone time.
Brennen has a sneaky side and is finding his way back to his old tricks. The struggles the two men go through bring out the best and the worst of each. There are some difficulties balancing their Domestic Discipline Relationship with their marriage. Jealousy is still a big stumbling block for both of them, but they always find time to squeeze in some playful, kinky sex.
They find danger when a secret meeting in Amsterdam with a trusted source turns out to be a betrayal. A brother goes missing, leaving an additional burden on Dmitri’s shoulders.
Complications with a long-time business associate who also happens to be one of the biggest drug lords in the world send them to Mexico. When one problem is solved abroad, another arises back at home. Something will change their lives forever. Can their marriage handle the change?
This is an adult, gay story focused on themes of corporal punishment and domestic discipline. It contains explicit sex with elements of light BDSM between adult men over the age of eighteen.
Book 1 and 2 Free with KU.
