Please don't tell me I don't know what happens in the marketplace, especially in the romance industry.

MOST authors have little to no control over what the publisher puts on the website or even the publicity of their work, unless they're Nora Roberts. One of my girlfriends writes for the largest romance publishing house in the world. The exact same cover photo on her book was used on another book, without her permission, and in the same month her book appeared in print.

Considering the fact that Judy Mays didn't wake up yesterday morning thinking her work was about to be savaged on the Internet by those who have nothing better to do, I'm sure whatever correcting needs to happen on the site will be happening at Ellora's Cave offices as soon as their webmaster is alerted.

I really don't care what your impression of Judy Mays' work is, and I'll bet she doesn't, either. The point is, she should be able to write what she likes. Ellora's Cave is a smaller publisher, but they're not publishing every manuscript that comes in the door. Mays is writing erotic paranormal, which is a subgenre of romance. I don't write it. I don't read it. I am not about to tell her what she can or cannot write. To infer that someone who writes paranormals is a "furry" is ridiculous.
