Update on When Villains Fall
It's been two weeks since Amazon ripped Falling for the Enemy from the Kindle Store & canceled Falling for the Broken's pre-order. I've been fighting with them tooth and nail every day since to get the covers re-approved, but so far, I haven't had any luck.
Between my cover designer & I, Amazon has been supplied with ample proof that every image on both covers is licensed correctly and that I have the legal right to use them, yet we're still going in what feels like never-ending circles.
I'm either repeatedly being asked to re-provide what I've already sent in (and that they've acknowledged receipt of) via various emails, or I'm being flat-out ignored for days on end.
I'm tired, y'all. And frustrated AF.
Since there seems to be no end in sight to this mess, I'm going to (unfortunately) have to temporarily cancel the release of Falling for the Broken. It's the LAST thing I want to do, but I have no other choice.
At least, not until Amazon gets their sh*t together, which at this point, I'm not convinced they're going to do. And if the covers remain blocked (which is looking likely) I'm going to have to rebrand this entire series for it to even be allowed back in the Kindle Store.
That is just . . . devastating.
Every single book in this series already has a cover, and every graphic has already been made. To redo it all is going to take time—it's definitely not something I can do overnight.
Y'all, I'm so sorry.
I know the canceled release is going to upset some people and trust me, I get it. I'm upset too. A lot of work has gone into this series, and now it just feels like it'll never see the light of day.
My heart is broken over this hot mess.
But instead of wallowing in self-pity, I'm going to keep fighting Amazon to right their screw-up. And if I'm not successful, then I'll begrudgingly re-brand everything, from the first book to the last, b/c I'll be damned if I let these stories go unpublished.
So, in the meantime, just bear with me okay?
This whole series may be moving to the back-burner for the time being, but it won't be forever. Promise.
In the meantime, I'm going to step offline and take a breather b/c the stress of this entire situation is gonna kill me. Okay, not literally but it feels like it, especially since my autoimmune disease is being a dick & causing issues (thanks again, stress).
Stay safe & healthy, y'all! ❤️
