“If you travel in the circles where this blog is read, you already know that yesterday Amazon nuked preorders for Jon Del Arroz’s and Declan Finn’s latest books.
Amazon shut down Jon Del Arroz’s Glorified novel along with Declan Finn’s Deus Vult novel from publisher Silver Empire.
Publisher Russell Newquist was informed that both books, which were scheduled to be released on November 1st, were removed from Amazon and Kindle.
Having worked with Russell Newquist before, I can affirm that Amazon blaming this debacle on his negligence is textbook DARVO behavior. Russell says he uploaded the files weeks ago.
Assuming the publisher of a best selling series inexplicably forgot to upload the third installment after books 1 and 2 launched without a hitch, the ones with the most to lose–the authors–would be crawling down his throat.
But they’re not. They’re looking right at Amazon.
And it’s not as if the accused megacorp doesn’t have a history of such censorious behavior.
While Amazon claims the pre-order for the books were cancelled because of missing a deadline, Newquist believes it’s suspicious that Amazon “canceled two controversial Christian Fiction books at once.”
It’s mind-boggling how much of our elites’ seemingly random behavior makes perfect sense once you realize they hate the Christ.”
Honestly, it makes me nostalgic for the bad old days of the gatekeepers of the big New York publishing companies.
At least when they reject your book, you know where you stand with them. But with Amazon it’s now a throw of the dice.
