Make my day: I’ve been censored! I’ve arrived as a novelist.

Specifically, the cover of my novel THE LOVE OF MY (OTHER) LIFE has been censored. iTunesConnect has deemed this cover “inappropriate.” See below.

By the way, if you click on the title, it will take you to the Amazon sales page.

Here was my initial response:

To my surprise, there is a ticket on this title, that the cover art has been deemed inappropriate.

Please note that this cover is from a black-and-white art photograph, and that the nude body has been considered the highest form of art since antiquity. This cover is not at all inappropriate, as there isn’t even any real nudity, just the fleshy part of the derriere. There is nothing really explicit on this cover. Moreover, the cover has been live on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads since mid-January.”
How fun is this? Is iTunes really this backward and provincial? Is iTunes really going to censor this cover?
