What we DON'T want

1) Characters (like elves, dwarves, orcs, etc.) that feel like they are out of LOTR, Elder Scrolls, etc. If you have these types of characters, they better be unique.
2) Zombies, werewolves, vampires, or ghosts. They can be in your story, but not be the main focus.
3) Epic fantasy (something like The Wheel of Time series)
4) Young Adult

What we DON'T want

1) Detective novels where the protagonist breaks all the rules and still is somehow the "good" guy/gal

2) Excessive gore or rape. Violence (sexual or otherwise) is okay if it moves the story, but we don't want anything just for "shock" value.

3) Young Adult
