Amazon pulls Boffed by Bigfoot romance novels from shelves.
Why didn't anyone tell me about these literary treasures?
Long, but interesting read...
MONSTER PORN: Amazon Cracks Down On America’s Latest Sex Fantasy
Author Virginia Wade's fiction debut follows a group of women who embark on a week-long camping trip to Mt. Hood National Forest. There, in the shadow of Oregon’s highest mountain, they are kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a mysterious woodland creature. "What the hell is that thing?" asks one protagonist.
“‘It's f---ing Bigfoot,’ hissed Shelly. ‘He's real, for f---'s sake.’ Horror filled her eyes. ‘With a huge c---.’”
The book, with the decidedly un-PG title "Cum For Bigfoot," is just the first of 16 fiction ebooks that Wade (a pen name) has written about the legendary beast sometimes known as Sasquatch, each detailing a series of graphic and often violent sexual encounters between the apelike creature and his female human lovers. Wade has made an exceptional living writing these stories.
It began in December of 2011. A stay-at-home mother from Parker, Colo., Wade had no ambition to be a published author and no real writing experience other than a few attempts at historical romance in the mid-90s. But then, she says, "I got this crazy idea for a story." So she sat down and wrote the entire book — more of a novella, at just 12,000 words — in a matter of weeks. She never even considered trying to sell it to a mainstream publisher. Instead, she went directly to Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing, an online platform for self-publishing with a 70% royalty rate for authors. (The average royalty percentage for authors with mainstream publishers is between 8 and 15%.)

Reading the article. That's too freakin' funny. People getting upset over fantasy stories written by women for women? Jeez.
That Virginia Wade isn't bad looking.
Edit: Beat me to it.

Dammit. Why didn't I think of that. This could be as big as that Twilight franchise.

The Moral Majority strikes again.
I can see why people would be offended, but removing these titles from all search results?
