I personally am very picky about what I read and that is reflected in my writing straight away. I know what I do no like so I am guessing that is a good place to start. I definetely do not find macabre/gorish style of writing appealing so I do not go there. where is there is blood/death/violence I switch off,in fact books could do with warnings about the context and language to tell the reader before you get there and In other words there are things I stumble onto that I wished I had not seen heard or read. does that happen to you?
