B&N in UK

By theory, all authors are treated equally. In reality, nothing can be farther from the truth. B&N opened a new site in the UK. I thought wonderful, more exposure for my 40+ books. Right? Wrong. I did a search for Erotica Short Stories since they don't have that category. Top matches had a long page, that keeps expanding as you scroll down. By the time I reached the end, I found that NONE of my books were being sold. There were multiple authors that got many of their books on there but the rest of us were left in the dust. How fair is that on a new site, where no authors had book sales yet?

Besides that, I have books on B&N at their US site that are on the first page, when you choose Best Selling in Erotica Short Stories. Therefore, if the UK site is according to US book sales, my books should be on the Best Selling order. Are they? NO again. I can't find my books at B&N in UK unless I specifically search for Elaine Shuel. That won't help new readers find me. I contacted B&N in UK and US.  I hope you'll write them too if you agree with me.  Thanks.

Would your husband/boyfriend cheat on you???

I'm gathering information for some possible upcoming book(s).  Your response to my questions will be kept as is, unedited.  Therefore do not include your name or the names of your spouse or lover. 

1.  They say men think about sex every few seconds.  How often do you think about sex?  What was your last sexual thought?  Your answers can be sexually explicit and detailed. Are you male or female?  Are you a heterosexual or gay? How old are you?  Again, your answers will not be edited, as I want this to be real answers from real people.

2.  Would you cheat on your spouse or girlfriend/boyfriend given the opportunity?  In this scenario, assume it would be impossible for your significant other to ever find out.  A yes or no answer is required but please elaborate if possible. Are you presently attached?  If yes, are you married or have a girlfriend/boyfriend? Are you male or female?  Are you a heterosexual or gay?  Have you cheated before?  I will not have your answers edited so be prepared that what you write is what will be in my book.

I'm Elaine Shuel and I'm an erotica author and phone sex operator.  My books can be found all over the web at major sites including Amazon, B&N, Itunes, Smashwords and more. There is nothing you can say that would shock me so feel free to be honest and open.  Thank you.
