This Blog Has Gone Death Star

Hello there. For a long time I've tried to compartmentalize all my interests, including how I blog about them. One blog for food. One blog for crafts. One blog for ... well, you get the idea. It was exhausting and I'm not doing it anymore. From hence forth, all my blogging will be done at La Vegan Loca

So if you are interested in my art, crafts, food, rants, writing, life, and general DIY dervishness, hop on over there. For now, this blog is done.

Fascists and Google Bombs

Attention writers, readers, and those that use language and value freedom of choice:

Amazon.com is "stripping the sales figures and accompanying rankings from GLBTQ books, erotica, and romance novels, particularly those with what they term "adult content." Quoted from this article over at the Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books site.

Authors are beginning to report that since having their sales ranking stripped, their books are no longer found in searches on Amazon.com.

What a buncha bullshit!

The smart bitches over at Smart Bitches have organized a Google Bomb:


I'm sure I don't have to spell out why this is important.

Do your part ... follow the link and repost it as many times in as many places as you can. The link should read: Amazon Rank

This is armchair activism at its finest!

Also, I just read that Powell's Books is considering organizing a GLBTQ book sale in response to Amazon.com's fascist asshattery.

Go Powell's!!!

Why is this important to me? Well, I love my freedom of choice and abhor censorship, of-course. But I also write erotica, which is one of the genres being de-ranked by Amazon.com. So yeah, this one's personal.
