29. Authors tend to be finicky about the ad copy for their books
With major publishers they don't always have much of a say, but they generally keep an eye on how their work is presented whenever they can. And since that site was one of the top results when I googled on "Judy Mays," you'd think she'd be aware of it and would have dropped them a friendly email.

But my larger point was that the stuff she's writing appears to be about half a step above fan fiction. I'm not sure what to make of that, but it does put a different spin on the situation than the term "racy novels" tends to imply.

If you're not aware of furry fandom, you might read the Wikipedia article -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furry_fandom -- for an indication of why it's considered controversial.
