Potty Mouth Error

We're getting more stuff ready for Jennifer's debut--including submitting Half-Blood to Amazon. I put everything up on Spencer Hill's vendor site, clicked submit, and got this:

"Input failed potty mouth validation."

Seriously?  They call it "potty mouth?"

As some longtime BFFs may recall, this isn't the first time Amazon has accused me of indecency: http://bookreviewstation.com/author-blog/guest-blog-kate-kaynak-minder/

Seriously, though, I don't know what triggered it this time.  Guesses, anyone?

Half-Blood
A Covenant Novel
by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi—pure-bloods—have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals—well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:

Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.

Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

I took out the last line and resubmitted, but it didn't change anything. Amazon also doesn't know the word Hematoi, and that might be a problem (we fear that which we do not know).

*sigh*

LOL. It's being rather difficult isn't it.

I hate the term "potty mouth": a) it's patronising and b) there's nothing wrong with strong language in context.

Did amazon object to scrubbing maybe? Or maybe it is just the use of any word it doesn't understand. That sucks.

Maybe because you mentioned the word toilet? Haha. I dunno. That's lame.

I'm actually really excited about this book. I love strong lead heroines and after the Vampire Academy series is over I don't know what I'm going to do!! ... Actually scratch that. I know what I'm going to do. I'm going to read this book. Sounds phenom. :)

LOL. Potty mouth!! LOL. I think of Dakota Bank's Accidental Werewolf when I hear potty mouth. What a technical phrase huh? I always get "your comment is a bit to spammy." It's funny how both phrases sound like talking to a child.
