Guinea Pig Books Banned in WHSmith Erotica Storm

Norfolk author Jemima Pett has discovered her children’s books have been banned as a result of the tabloid attack on WHSmith’s ebooks earlier this week. Following the accusation that WHSmith was selling pornographic material in its estore, their suppliers, Kobo, withdrew all works by independent authors in a knee-jerk reaction, not only in the UK but worldwide.

Kobo bans the Princelings of the East

In an over-reaction to an exposee by the tabloid newspapers, Kobo has banned all indie books from sale in all its outlets including W H Smith in the UK.  This means that at the moment, The Princelings of the East, together with Pirates, Lost City and Traveler, can all claim the status of BANNED BOOKS!

The newspapers said that W H Smith was selling erotica in its Kobo-powered bookstore.  As Kobo does not have individual vetting for the books it takes from Smashwords, it probably did, as Smashwords does not ban erotica per se, although it does not accept certain types.  However Kobo's response was to place a blanket ban on ALL independently published books, including those published via Smashwords.
