It is with deep regret that we have to suspend the launch of our Ghede Books imprint.
Due to the current conservative climate, the launching of an erotica site now or in the near future places in jeopardy our ability to retain commercial banking due to strict adult business policies placed by commercial financial institutions.
Weâ€™ve invested time and money into this project. Book editing, cover art, marketing and web development. This is as big a disappointment for us as it is for you.
I never had a strong desire to write for them, because Ellora’s Cave fulfills my HEA requirements, but I feel terrible for anybody who made their first sale to Ghede. Heck, any sale, really.
And who knows if it’s PayPal or some other commercial stuffed-shirts, but it’s bad enough Walmart can dictate content. We don’t need everybody with impact on the wallet censoring writers.
So,…do the other erotica publishers keep their money under their mattresses?
