The problem I am anticipating is whether or not my content is too mature.
I looked under Mature Content for specific guidelines on what is and is not too mature for general viewers. I have three novels and a fourth on the way that I would like to put on my back pages, and though they have a few sexual terms, they are basically comedies and satires and romances, and one is a bildungsroman (the one still being written). They are quality writing, and have no rude photos or sex scenes that are more than is found in the average romance novel these days. I would not like to lose the public aspect of your offerings, and hope maybe you can give me some guidance for whether I need to do so or not.
