Tags

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.

 

A

Asexual: The book involves a romantic relationship that explicitly does NOT include sex. 

D

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. 

E

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.

G

Gay: Two or more men will have romantic relationships. Sex may be involved, but not necessarily so. 

H

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.

L

Lesbian: Two or more women will have romantic relationships. Sex may be involved, but not necessarily so. 

M

Magic Spirit: At least one of the characters is not a human, but a spirit of some sorts. 

P

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.

R

Romance: Two or more people will fall in love. Sex may be involved, but not necessarily so.

S

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. 

T

Trust: A significant part of the book revolves around the question if the main characters can trust each other. 

U

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.
