I have a rape scene in one of my novels. It is pivotal to my plot and main character's actions. However....how should I deal with this rape scene? It has already been written, but I'm wondering would this rape scene hurt my chances in the publishing world? For what it is worth, it isn't too graphic (in my opinion) and is a grand total of four pages with the actual rape being two pages. Because it is a such an important part of my plot, I feel that maybe I should expand on it, but I'm afraid that a rape scene will be too touchy. Any advice?
