    Seems strange to say that they're accepting mystery/suspense, paranormal, fantasy, and western while also saying that they won't accept stories with "violence... of any kind." That's a pretty broad sweep of negation.

    It seems to me that they want romance with some suspense/adventure, not the other way around. But the guidelines are not 100% clear.

    Interesting challenge to write a Western within those guidelines.

    That ruled out every novel in my collection, including the Little House series (violence, racism), The Wind in the Willows (violence : the battle for Toad Hall) and even my Enid Blyton books (if slaps count as violence).

    I guess so, if there were no people in it, maybe like a travel guide.

    But then you have that whole rattlesnake/mouse thing going on ...

    I imagine they mean significant "on screen/page" violence. A lot of cozies etc have a plenty of violence occur, but not shown.

    I got a western published with them. It had violence in it but not gratuitous. You know one of the characters got shot by the blood and I even threw in a wagon chase and crash.

    They do, however, prefer the sweet side of romance.
