Hello everyone, About a week ago, I submitted Distant Shores Silent Thunder by Radclyffe. I was unfamiliar with the bookshare submitting process, and my screen reader definitely wasn't functioning at its best that day. Consequently, I overlooked the comments field; presumably, this field allows you to comment on elements the validator might want to be aware of. I'll definitely be mindful of that field in future, meaning I shouldn't have to use a general list post like this, although I have seen a number of people post comments about submisions to the general list, making me hope I'm not too far out of line with this. The adult rating mystifies me; though by what I've seen of the archives of this list, it mystifies a number of others. When the word adult pops in to my mind, I'm thinking some sort of X-rated novel/movie, something like Ann Rice's The Adventures Of Beauty (While I haven't read this and have no intention of doing so, some independent research on the ratings of books brought this up as a good example of an X-rated book, though I have no idea whether the example is valid) For things other than erotica, the boundary seems extremely grey. The Radclyffe novel did have sex, though no more explicit than that described in a Nora Robert's novel. I have seen several of these on bookshare, without an adult rating. A second oppinion by a validator as to what the rating of this book should be would be helpful, though, if I understand the bookshare automated spellchecker policy aright, that may not be necessary. I simply wanted to throw this out there, since the boundaries between adult/non adult content seem so grey. Thanks very much.
