Why do you ask for so much information?

Are you nosy or something?

Not at all. Entries in the eBook Competition have a wide range of content. In the same way, our judges have a wide range of content preferences. We use the Sexual Heat, Explicit Language, Excessive Violence, Religious Content levels, as well as BDSM and GLBT information, to match our judges to your books. This way your entry will be placed with a judge who will already be excited about reading it. After that, it's up to you to have written a sparkling book that will get high scores.

A few words are in order here about bondage, domination, sadism, masochism (BDSM). These practices are generally depicted between consenting adults. If one of the practitioners is not consenting, the acts constitute torture. In this case, the entrant should indicate a higher level of Extreme Violence on the entry form. This will allow us to place the book in the hands of a judge who will be more comfortable with the content and less likely to mark it down because it's uncomfortable for them to read.
