An Adorable Slave is Objectionable - but only taken as a whole

Apple's ebook iTunes books store is refusing to carry the complete version of my novella An Adorable Slave because of "Prohibited Explicit or Objectionable Content" however they are allowing the individual parts (four separate books) to be sold (through Smashwords because I don't deal directly with Apple). Usually a work taken as a whole is more understandable than when viewed in individual pieces, but apparently this isn't so for Apple. I'm not terribly concerned because Apple ebooks are a very small part of my overall sales, but it's amusing because--and I'm only guessing here--Apple has someone or someones skimming through every ebook (or at least the ones labeled as erotica) being sold on their site looking for objectionable content--as is their right, I don't mind that at all--but there is very little consistency to what is objectionable. So for some of Apples reviewers a passage or scene might be perfectly fine, but for a different reviewer it's likely to turn an average reader into a maniacal pervert.

I just wish Apple (and Amazon/Kindle) would tell me exactly what passages or pages or what terms or sentences are "bad". Call me lazy but I'm not going to go through a 40,000 word novella guessing at what parts are objectionable, remove them or rewrite them, and then resubmit it to Apple, or any other ebook retailer, and hope it's accepted on the second or third or fourth time.

What I'm really complaining about is the lack of consistency and the lack of information as to what is objectionable. On the plus side I've had a few books rejected by Smashwords but they are very specific in what they refuse to carry (kudos to Smashwords, they aren't uptight prigs).

Kiel is invited into a marriage that he never considered becoming part of…mostly because Esther was already married to Tim. When his friend practically begs Kiel to have sex with his wife as part of the chastity games the couple play, Kiel finds he can’t resist. The difficult part is bringing his sort-of girlfriend and occasional lover Bethany into the mix…

This is a 22,000 word novella intended for adult audiences. Originally published in two parts.
Content warning: This story features graphic sex, enforced male chastity, group sex, some BDSM themes, female dominance, male dominance and other depictions of adult sexuality. Strong language and adult only content.

Excerpt:
“I’ve got something special for you,” she hinted to him. “You’ll love it.”

“Maybe another night?”

“Is it Esther?” Bethany suddenly blurted. It sounded like an accusation to Kiel’s ears, but she was actually just teasing him.

“No! What? Why?”

Bethany snickered at him. “You didn’t see her giving you the eye all night?”

“No!” Kiel was in a near panic.

“I bet she wants to get in your pants.” Bethany couldn’t help herself. She liked seeing Kiel like this.

“She’s married!” Kiel protested. “I wouldn’t do that to Tim.”

“She wouldn’t be the first married slut in the world,” Bethany commented. “And he wouldn’t be the first cuckold. How about I follow you home and I take your mind off her?”

“My mind isn’t on her,” Kiel insisted. He could feel his face flushing red with embarrassment and was glad the darkness of the evening hid his shame.

“Liar. I’m going to follow you home anyway and I’ll give you what you need to relax you tonight.”

Kiel knew she was right and he just nodded in assent. Bethany didn’t need to follow him home. She knew the way to his place. When they got there, he was actually glad she went home with him. Having sex with a single girl was normal and he needed a dose of normal at the moment.

Normal wasn’t what Bethany had planned for him. The moment they walked in the door to his small house she was all over him, kissing and pawing and groping. Normally he would have loved such attention, but tonight was a different matter.



Annie makes her living by selling her excess breast milk—luckily she makes a lot of excess breast milk. Everything in the life is perfect until someone breaks into her house and steals her stored up supply. What follows is Annie’s quest to recover her stolen property and the strangely erotic relationship she builds with the investigating cop who is kinkier than Annie could imagine…

This is a 21,000 word novella intended for adult audiences. Originally published in two parts.

Content warning: features erotic lactation, graphic sex, group sex, lesbian sex, strong language, adult nursing relationships, erotic situations not all members of the public will enjoy, and other depictions of adult sexuality. Explicit language and adult only content.




Excerpt:

The way she said it made Annie know exactly what Cruz meant. “I don’t do it that way,” she said firmly but she knew that Cruz was on to her.

Cruz slowly shook her head. “I know you do, Annie. I’ve seen your ads. I know what the code words mean. I’ve investigated your whole little subculture. Don’t worry. I’m not trying to nail you for prostitution or anything like that. It’s something completely different. There’s a special component to what you do. I like that. You don’t think cops have sex lives? We do. We have needs liked everyone else, truth be told.”

“Wh-what does your friend want?”

Cruz paused. “I can trust you to be discrete, can’t I?”

“Of course,” Annie automatically answered. She had to be discrete in her line of business.

“I have someone who wants it straight from the source.”

When Arlene gets involved with Pearce she doesn’t expect to have to get involved with his best friend Dale and Dale’s wife as well. Being an open-minded woman she goes along with the suggestion but what she didn’t expect was Pearce’s request she start lactating for him. What follows is Arlene’s enticement to erotic lactation.

This is a 31,000 word novella for adults. Originally published in three parts

Content warning: features erotic lactation, graphic sex, group sex, lesbian sex, strong language, adult nursing relationships, erotic situations not all members of the public will enjoy, and other depictions of adult sexuality. Explicit language and adult only content.

Excerpt:

“Are you angry?” he asked nervously.

“No.”

“Are you…I don’t know what to ask.”

“I’m good,” she said. “I’m good. Never expected this.”

“Is it okay that we did it? I mean, I probably should have asked you rather than just roping you into it. But I was pretty sure that you’d freak out and say no and then I’d be nowhere.”

Arlene nodded her head in understanding. “You were probably right. I’d have said no. And that’s kind of sad because then I would have missed out on all this.”

“So…you enjoyed it?” Pearce asked with a nervous grin.

She flopped her head over to him. “Yeah. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it a lot. I never thought I would have…wait, no that’s not right.”

“What’s not right,” he asked quickly, thinking she was changing her mind.

“I’ve had a lot of fantasies about group sex. Who hasn’t? Usually just three-ways. Me and two other guys. I never incorporated another woman into the mix.” She smiled weakly. “I never would have thought to add breast milk either.”


Maura meets Preston at a business conference and quickly insinuates herself into the relationship he has with a consensual slave. At first Preston is pleased at how his new lover takes to the dominant lifestyle, but then he sees his slave is being taken away from him and yet he doesn’t seem to care…

Content warning: features strong erotic relationships, consensual slavery, spanking fetish, graphic sex, group sex, lesbian sex, BDSM sexuality, erotic situations not all members of the public will enjoy, and other depictions of adult sexuality. Explicit language and adult only content.




Excerpt:

“Like I said, we have a complicated relationship.”

“I’ve never been involved in a three-way before,” she said, half changing the subject, “but I always imagined it being with two men, not a man and a woman.”

He shrugged. “If you want I can have her go out and pick up a man for us.”

The ridiculousness of the statement made Maura sink back down to the bed and laugh her head off. When she had recovered enough to speak she said, “You can just snap your fingers like that and she’ll go out and pick up a man for me.”

“Beth is very resourceful.”

“I’d like to see that,” Maura declared.

“Good,” he said and held out his hand to her. “Why don’t you come back to bed and show me how resourceful you are?”









(Let's see if Amazon notices this one has part four which includes the dirty bits they banned on the first publishing attempt.)

Fetishizing the writing space

I can't stand it when  so-called writers fetishize their wedding space. It has to be perfect or they can't write. Boo-Fucking-Hoo. A real writer can write anywhere. I've written in the following places:
My computer room/laundry room
A classroom
In a moving car (I want driving at the time)
In a doctor's waiting room
In the office of my day job
On my back deck
In my kitchen
In my in-laws living room
No less than three different public libraries
...and probably a bunch of other places as well.

I've written on the following devices as well:
Desktop computer
Laptop computer
Netbook
Cell phone
Kindle

While my ideal place to write is in my computer room on my laptop, I've found I can do it anywhere since I'm motivated.

In the Knight's Bedroom - a deviant fantasy story

Now up for sale on Smashwords and Amazon and BN.com: In the Knight's Bedroom, Or, Never Fuck a Sleeping Dragon, an erotic and deviant fairy tale. It's by me, Elliot Silvestri via Green Bush Publishing. Do you like fantasy sex with shape-shifting dragons and Machiavellianprincesses? Okay, it's admittedly a narrow fantasy sub-genre, but go for it anyway!

Sir Tarant is sure the only way to earn the love of the Lady he and his family wish him to marry is to kill a dragon in single combat. It’s an excellent plan…except that the dragon he finds is a woman trapped in a dragon’s body with a voracious sexual appetite and a strange curse. Only Sir Tarant’s sword (ahem) can save the fair maiden from her curse.


This is a 10,000 word novella intended for adult audiences.

Content warning: features graphic sex, sex between a human and non-human character, sex between a dragon and a human, group sex, other unusual sex practices, and other depictions of adult sexuality. Explicit language and adult only content.

Excerpt:

The dragon gave a wry, throaty chuckle. “I’m not going to kill you.”

Tarant half opened one eye. “You’re not?”

“No.” A dragon’s smile is a wry and rare thing. Tarant witnessed one now. “There’s more than one way to slay a dragon.”

“There is?”

In the blink of an eye the dragon was next to him, pinning him to the cliff wall. The heat from the monster’s body was tremendous. Tarant realized the dragon was much smaller than he initially realized. Still large, yes, but most of the bulk was taken up by large wings and a long tail. The body itself wasn’t much larger than Tarant. “There is,” the dragon promised. “What are your thoughts on inter-species intimacy?”

The question caught the young knight off-guard. Once more he stammered. “I-I-I-I-I know some of my family’s shepherds don’t just watch the sheep out in the fields.” He failed to go into his own personal history as a shepherd.

Kiel has found that he likes living the life of the bull in the marriage of Esther and Tim. The difficult part is bringing his sort-of girlfriend and occasional lover Bethany into the mix. He doesn’t want to upset this perfect balance, but he has to push his dominance onto the couple and Bethany because he is now a changed person…

Content warning: This story features graphic sex, enforced male chastity, group sex, some BDSM themes, female dominance, male dominance and other depictions of adult sexuality. Strong language and adult only content.




Excerpt:
Kiel pulled into Esther and Tim’s driveway and killed the engine. Bethany just sat there, her hands in her lap. She hadn’t said anything on the ride over and now stared straight ahead, not seeing the large garage door right in front of her.

“You’re scared,” Kiel told her.

“I’ve never done anything like this before,” she said. She didn’t move her head. She just kept staring through the windshield.

“But you said you were as kinky as hell. You like trying new things.”

“That doesn’t necessarily include having sex with another woman. Or watching my boyfriend with another woman.”

“Which one bothers you the most?”

“Both!”

“And yet you told me in college you had drunken makeout sessions with your roommate.”

“It was the girl in the next room of my dorm!” she quickly snapped at him. “And it was once. Well, twice.”

“But did you like it?” he asked.
