We have established these guidelines for AUTHORS to better judge what kinds of books we will advertise on this site.
Here’s how we rate Family-Friendly literature:
Authors Community defines Family-Friendly as content that is: wholesome, striving to maintain innocence and purity of young people, even in stories that may sometimes be traumatic, painful or tragic.
We don’t seek to shelter children from real-life issues, but neither will we work on books or help authors promote books that contain sexual content or graphic violence. Therefore the books we help polish and promote at Authors Community and the books on www.eBookChristian.net will seek to enrich imaginations and traditional values.
Books do not have to have Faith, Religion, or Salvation as the main theme. Books advertised here do have to be morally biblical with biblical principles and sin is acknowledged with consequences.
No occult, new age, pornographic, child exploitation, or gender exploration type books are appropriate for our catalogue on www.eBookChristian.net.
Children’s books/age demarcation are categorized based on vocabulary and situational story lines/concepts that would be understood and enjoyed by a child in that age bracket.
Many younger skilled readers aren’t emotionally ready for some of the edgier stories in today’s chapter books, with tales of homelessness, alcoholic parents, relatives in jail, parental death or abandonment, cancer, mental illness, natural disasters, and more. Messages and role models in fiction do impact young readers. Consider the characters of books. Are they people you’d like your kids to emulate? Are adults present and responsible? Are the characters realistic and relatable? Are there consequences for the characters’ behavior? If the theme “the ends justifies the means” is encouraged, that book is not acceptable.

TEEN, YOUNG ADULT AND ADULT:
Action, adventure and romance may be a part of the story lines in these books; however a wholesome perspective in keeping with the label Christian or Family-Friendly remains. Therefore, there is no swearing, no overt descriptions of romantic or violent encounters. No use of drugs, alcohol or irresponsible behavior without consequences. High standards and morality continue to be conveyed in a positive light. Themes may explore deeply personal faith, family or sexual issues but not in any way endorsing violence or sex out of wedlock. Another theme discouraged at eBookChristian.net is “the ends justifies the means”.
For Adult Fiction, www.eBookChristian.net discourages gratuitous swearing, erotica, sexual content, graphic violence and gore.
Young Adult: 14 – 17
