If you are publishing erotic fiction in KDP, how do you avoid getting the "Adult" rating that will stop the book being easily searched for and stop it showing up in any suggested reading lists?
I imagine that the front cover has to be mild and that the contents shouldn't involve grossly offensive sex acts, but are there other factors such as cursing a lot? My book uses the f*** word about 100 times over 150,000 words, and often as the verb as part of a physical act, rather than just as a profanity.
Could being explicit in terms of body parts, even if the scene itself is fairly ordinary, lead to an Adult rating?
I've been doing research on KDP but can't see the info about the ratings. Does most erotic fiction published on there fall into a milder category such as Erotica or Mature or something?
I was looking at other erotic fiction on amazon, and I can't see the rating category for each book.
If anyone has any experience in publishing erotic with KDP and knows about this, any advice would be appreciated!
