The books are: Jon Del Arroz’s Glorified and Declan Finn’s Deus Vult
Amazon shut down Jon Del Arroz’s Glorified novel along with Declan Finn’s Deus Vult novel from publisher Silver Empire.
Publisher Russell Newquist was informed that both books, which were scheduled to be released on November 1st, were removed from Amazon and Kindle.
In an email provided to Bounding Into Comics from Newquist, Amazon explained that the pre-order for the books was “cancelled because no manuscript was provided by the submission deadline.” The email continued, “We have notified customers of the cancellation.”
They added that Silver Empire will no longer be allowed to set-up a pre-order for an eBook another year:
“To ensure a good customer experience, we require a manuscript file to be uploaded before the submission deadline. If you don’t upload your file on time, we will cancel the pre-order, and you won’t be able to set up a pre-order for any eBook for one year.”
If you attempt to visit the Amazon pages for either book, you are met with an image of a dog who tells you, “Sorry we couldn’t find that page.”
However, Newquist details that he submitted the manuscripts on time. He tells me, “Amazon’s claiming I didn’t get the final files uploaded in time, but that’s total BS. I had the files for both uploaded weeks ago.”
