Angusel returns home in Ch 14/Sc 3a of RAGING SEA by @KimHeadlee #amwriting

Twitter has unjustly blacklisted my blog as a "spam or malicious" website.

I have no idea why. My content is neither spam nor malicious.

As you can see for yourself, my blog contains no advertising—not even Google's—and I do not use the Bloglovin' widget or any other plugin that slaps ads onto a blog without the blog owner's knowledge or consent. I carefully avoid displaying content that can be construed as offensive or immoral from a "relationship intimacy" standpoint.

Note how I bent over backward just now to employ a euphemism rather than include text that would show up in a keyword search and further support the TwitRNazis' erroneous position regarding the nature of my blog.

The only thing I can figure is that last month, a fake Google user account named "Blogger" posted a few spammy comments on three or four of my older posts, one spam comment per post. I deleted them as soon as I found them, and I have since instituted comment moderation, but apparently I didn't act fast enough to prevent my website from being blacklisted by the TwitRNazi bots. If anyone knows how to report spam accounts to Google, please do leave a comment to that effect, because I've been unable to find a way to do that. I will approve your comments as soon as I'm able so everyone may benefit from your advice.

The link to the Twitter website reporting page is ( If any of you would like to help me appeal the unjust blacklisting of my blog by Twitter, please visit that link, select the button that reads "I can't tweet a link because Twitter thinks it's spam.", and then specify as the "Problematic link."

Thanks, and I hope you all have a much better week than I'm having. Hurricane Matthew—and the raging seas it's churning up—isn't helping matters any.

In today's excerpt from Raging Sea, Angusel isn't having a very good week either, though he doesn't yet know it's about to get even worse.

Raging Sea Chapter 14, Scene 3a

For the first time in a year and a half, Angusel was returning home.

To his birthplace, he corrected himself. “Home” had become a spartan barracks chamber. That circumstance would not be changing any time soon.

He marveled that Stonn seemed to remember the lands surrounding Senaudon, tugging at the bit and acting more fidgety with each passing league. It was all Angusel could do to keep him from bolting down the path ahead of the Pendragon and Centurion Cato and the rest of First Ala.

And why shouldn’t his horse be eager? Stonn had all the comforts of a familiar stable awaiting him, not derision and scorn.

Angusel straightened in the saddle, submerging his resentment. Whatever might happen, he would comport himself as one of Arthur’s soldiers, stoic and reserved.

That plan worked just fine, in fact, until the troop got to within hailing distance of Senaudon’s gate tower.
