So what are tags? Tags are the keywords we label and sort our novels with.
We firmly believe that everyone should know what they're about to get when they buy a book. Hardly anything is as disappointing as starting a good book and then realizing it deals with a subject or theme you absolutely do not like reading about.
We take great care to tag our book as thoroughly as possible. If you think a tag is missing, or you're not sure what a particular tag means, look it up below, or ask us directly.
Asexual: The book involves a romantic relationship that explicitly does NOT include sex.
Death: At some point, a (side) character in the story dies.
Dubious Consent: In at least one situation, it is questionable if one of the partners has consented to sexual actions. It is definitely different from Non-Consent, which would include rape.
Explicit Erotica: People will engage in sexual activities in this book, and there will be no gentle fade to black once they hit the sheets.
Gay: Two or more men will have romantic relationships. Sex may be involved, but not necessarily so.
HEA: short for Happily Ever After - this book has a happy ending.
HFN: short for Happy For Now - this book has a happy ending, though things might change in the future.
Historical: A novel set in a distinctive period in the past, often dealing with real events, places and people. The literary equivalent of a period piece.
Lesbian: Two or more women will have romantic relationships. Sex may be involved, but not necessarily so.
Magic Spirit: At least one of the characters is not a human, but a spirit of some sorts.
Paranormal Romance: A novel set in a world similar to Urban Fantasy, but with an emphasis on the romance, and less focus on world building and action.
Shifter: At least one of the characters is only partially human, and can change between (at least) two bodily forms. Particularly werewolves, werecats, weredeer....
Suspense: For a significant part of the book, the fate of the characters hangs in the balance.
Trust: A significant part of the book revolves around the question if the main characters can trust each other.
Urban Fantasy: A novel set in a world similar to our own, but in the dark corners, there's vampires and werewolves, fae and all sorts of supernatural creatures.
