Clean Categories at Big Book Sellers...please!

Ever notice that it's so hard to find clean fiction?  Not always because it's not there, but because it's not a filtered category.

I know I do - it's one of the reasons I started this website years ago.  I was so tired of having to read half of a book to see if it was clean, or thumbing through it to try to catch out scenes before I bought or borrowed it.  Wouldn't it be great if places like Amazon (and consequently Goodreads) and Barnes & Noble had a way for the authors to catagorize their books as "clean" fiction?

A good author friend, Cami Checketts, is leading up a campaign to petition these companies to add in "clean" categories for such already existing categories such as romance, historical, suspense, fantasy, etc.

I'm happy to help spread the word.  Hopefully, if we all work together, we can convince these retailers that there is a need and desire for such categories to be labeled and thus easily found by the customer.

Here's an example of what you could write:

I'm looking for more clean fiction -- stories that don't include sex as well as clean language and minimal violence. Listings and category labels for clean books in romance, suspense, historical, fantasy, and comedy would be wonderful. Thank you very much. ​
