Many of Booksie's frequent users are writing adult stories that are not erotica, and are not getting the attention they deserve! Many people wont look at your work if it is posted on Silk as they automatically assume you are writing erotica and they choose to avoid the genre. The population of Silk is only interested in erotica and other adult fiction is pushed to the side, yet we are not allowed to post on standard Booksie, where we would get the reads we are looking for.
Despite my attempts to get them to make the system fairer, they have done nothing to change the view of our readers..
I ask you to sign this petitiion to make them see that there are a lot of us who would like a change, because not all adult fiction is erotica and those works deserve to be noticed too!
Dear Booksie Admin,
We are writing you because we are finding your new rating system and Silk a little unfair. Nothing with an adult rating can be posted on standard Booksie anymore, but silk is so strongly geared towards the erotica genre we feel our work (Non-Erotica Adult pieces) is not getting noticed at all.
Every story featured on the home screen is erotica, casual browsers would be led to believe there is nothing but erotica featured on the site. We feel totally out of place on the Silk site.
