I’m pretty excited. As of today, I am now self-publishing with Apple, via Her Last Fling.
You might think this isn’t a big thing, but Apple is very strict on what erotica they accept. Even outside of the obviously offensive-ish kinks, they have another list of kinks that may surprise you that they don’t allow.
For example, it was explained to me by a rep that a story involving a person who unwittingly drinks a potion and then switches genders is not allowed by Apple. The school of thought is that what is happening to the person is against their will, therefore forced on them, which equals bad. It’s a fairly innocent way to think about something quasi-sexual forced on someone, but there you go.
I’ll likely still write what I wish, with the understanding that not all of it will make it to Apple. I’m okay with that. I plan to publish enough short story e-books that there will be enough love for everyone.
Do many of you out there read e-books via iBooks/iTunes? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
