Book Ratings:
Or Am I too young to buy this book?

/ /


By EelKat Wendy C Allen

"Are there age limits on buying books? I'm a 14 year old male and I want to read a book called Auschwitz: A Doctors Eyewitness Account but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to?"

While it is not common and not heavily enforced, yes, there is a system for rating books. Book ratings are not something a lot of people are aware of, because so few books ever warrant having a rating put on it.

Some books do have ratings on them, and are required by law to not be sold to minors. This is very rare however. Typically you only see these ratings put on comic books, manga, and adult magazines (such as PlayBoy). If the book does not have a rating label on it's cover than anyone of any age can buy it.

Book ratings will say:

Rated T for Teens. (No one under 14 is allowed to buy it)

Rated T16 for Older Teens (No one under 16 is allowed to buy it)

Rated M for Mature Audiences (No one under 21 is allowed to buy it)

It is very rare to see book rating labels on text-only books. Usually the labels indicate there are nude images in the book.

Some publishers, such as Harlequin, are now putting M rated labels on Erotica novels, but this is a very new trend which only started in late 2012. You can expect to see it happening more often, because several other publishers are now talking about following Harlequin's lead.

However, even books which have book ratings clearly marked on them, are often easy to buy. For example the manga InuYasha is rated T16, but I've seen children as young as 8 walk into a store a buy it and the sales clerk never batted an eye. Very few bookstores enforce the rating system law, partly because it's so rarely seen that few book store clerks are even aware to look for the rating labels.

I am not familiar with the book you are asking about, but if it has no rating label on the back cover (and also on the copyright page) than, no anyone any age can buy it.

Of course at 14, you are not exactly old enough to be going to the store without your parents (and you got crappy parents if they don't care enough about you to keep you safe) so it's really up to your mom and dad whether or not you are allowed to buy that book. You need to be asking them what they think about this book and if they think you are old enough to read it of not.

Rating System of The Twighlight Manor Press

*************************************************************************************************************

RATINGS: Because The Twighlight Manor Press publishes books for all reading levels, from Early Childhood to 21+ Mature Adult a rating system has been created and is applied to all books. Twighlight Manor Press books are rated as follows:

E: Suitable for all readers. Contains nothing that would be deemed offensive by most parents.

PG: Suitable for most readers, but contains minor situations which may require parental guidance.

T: Suitable for most readers, but may require parental guidance for readers under the age of 13. Contains fantasy violence and/or mild language.

T+: Suitable for most readers over the age of 16, but may require parental guidance for readers under the age of 16. Contains adult situations, strong language, drug use,  violence, and/or sexual situations.

M: Suitable for most readers over the age of 21, but NOT SUITABLE for readers under the age of 18. Contains adult situations, explicit language, drug use, intense violence, and/or explicit sex scenes.

ADDITIONAL TAGS:

LGBT: Lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and/or transgendered characters are present in this story. In most instances this means there is a M/M relationship between a male character and a male-to-female transgendered character, usually if you see the LGBT tag on a Twighlight Manor Press book, that means one of the primary characters (often the main character) is bi-sexual male-to-female transgendered. This label is not a rating and may be applied to any rating E - M. This label does not imply sex scenes unless an EROTICA, BDSM, MONSTER SEX, or GORN label is also applied.

GORE: Additional warning for readers who are sensitive to graphic depictions of bloody violence. This T/M-rated story contains strong and explicit graphic violence and grizzly gore.

EROTICA: Additional warning for readers who are sensitive to graphic depictions of sex. This M-rated story contains strong and explicit sex scenes.

BDSM: Additional warning for readers who are sensitive to graphic depictions of slave/master bondage/torture sex fetishes. This M-rated story contains strong and explicit sex scenes.

MONSTER SEX: Additional warning for readers who are sensitive to graphic depictions of sex with non-human entities (in most cases aliens and/or vampires). This M-rated story contains strong and explicit sex scenes.

GORN: Additional warning for readers who are sensitive to graphic depictions of bloody violence AND explicit sex. This M-rated story contains strong and explicit graphic violence and grizzly gore AND explicit violent sex scenes. May also contain strong substance abuse, necrophilia, rape, and/or sexualized murder scenes.

Throughout 2013 - 2015 a slew of FAKE "EelKat" accounts surfaced, both on social networks and on forums, most were created by a woman calling herself Kendra Silvermander, or her backhoe driving cousin who drove a backhoe over my house, the same woman and her family who cut the heads off my cats, are the same people who hacked my online accounts, created a slew of fake accounts and pretended to be me, after they beat me up on November 14, 2013, leaving me paralyzed for 5 months, relearning to walk for 18 months, and clueless to their impersonation of my online due to my life threatening crippled state that had me offline from November 2013 to March 2016.

Who they are and why they are doing this remains unknown. If you know the identity of these people, please contact the FBI in charge of the investigation into their murder attempts on my life:

Agent Andy Drewer

of the Portland FBI

@ 207-774-9322 

NOTE: I was very active on forums from 1997 to 2007 and have RARELY used a forum since then. Other then the Warriors Forum and Absolute Write I have not posted on ANY forums AT ALL since 2012.

Note: My old inactive forum accounts were hacked and "resurrected" in 2013/2014/2015 by a psychotic NaNoWriMo ML who is upset over my having won a total of 27 writing contests/challenges and published 130+ novels since 2004 and and apparently (according to her emails) she has yet to win or publish anything.

If you see "me" posting on a forum at any point after 2012, know that it is likely this mysterious, and still yet unidentified "Kendra Silvermander".

More information about Kendra Silvermander and what she did can be found here.

Let's think about something here...

I'm just a harmless old lady who likes to dress like and Elf and paint everything pink and write stories about Elves having sex with Unicorns. For THAT, the residents of Old Orchard Beach, call me crazy, build a bomb, blow up my house, stand in my drive way and shoot at me, kidnap my cats, cut my cats' heads off, nail my cats' heads to my door, beat my 28 year old Shetland pony's head in, drive a back hoe over my house 3 times, filled my motorhome with feces 3 feet deep, I was paralyzed for 5 months because they trespassed up in here and beat me up, 3 years later I finally recover and start walking again and they beat me up again this time with a shopping cart rupturing 3 discs in my spine while screaming "kill or be killed remember Saco Shaw's!" and they cut my car in half. I'm sorry, WHO exactly is the crazy person here? 

Yes, I wear pink ball gowns every day.

Yes I wear fake pointy ears and long white Rapunzel wigs.

Yes, I paint my cars, my motorhome, and my mailbox pink.

Yes, I write about Elves having sex with Unicorns.

So the fucking hell what?

I haven't set foot off my land in 40 years. The only time I have contact with people is when THEY trespass on my yard and invade my privacy. And you know what? I've always welcomed them with happy smiles and open arms, made them meals and served them tea, and spent the day happily chatting with any one and every one who wanted to visit me. I love it when you people stop by to visit me as it's the only time I have any one to talk to other then my cats... oh wait... I don't have ANYONE to talk to any more, now that sociopath freaks murdered them and nailed their heads to my door!

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the ones who built a bomb and blew up my house!

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the violent trespassers who stands in my drive way and shoot at me.

You call me crazy because I wear pink dresses, yet THESE THREE PEOPLE are the ones who kidnap my cats, cut my cats' heads off, nail my cats' heads to my door, beat my 28 year old Shetland pony's head in, drive a back hoe over my house 3 times, filled my motorhome with feces 3 feet deep, and cut my car in half.

I mean REALLY stand back and look around.

All I'm doing is wearing strange cloths. I'm not the violent animal abusing, bomb building, psychopath beating up elderly women... THEY are.

There's a hell of a big difference between a half blind elderly woman dressing up as comic book characters and not bothering one damned person, and violent psychopathic criminal creeps beating her up, bombing her house, driving a back hoe over 3 more of her houses, cutting her car in half, filling her motorhome with feces, murdering her horse, and slaughtering her cats!

Old Orchard Beach has a crazy person in it all right, but isn't me... and the residents of this town need to get off their asses and tell the FBI who this white haired man and his blond wife and red haired sister-in-law are BEFORE THEY KILL ME! The red haired woman calls herself Kendra Silvermander.

I don't know who this man and his two women are. They are strangers to me. I don't know their names. And I don't know why they are doing this. Some body in this town must know who these people are ... PLEASE... the FBI is trying to put a stop to these insane hate crimes... PLEASE if you know who these psychopathic monsters are, PLEASE tell Agent Andy Drewer before they kill me. They cut my car in half in 2010. They cut my cats in half in 2015. How long do you think it'll be before they cut ME in half too? PLEASE HELP ME!

➽ ➽ ➽ If you have any information regarding the identity of the stalker/attacker/driver of the 4-door white pick-up truck please contact Officer Tim DeLuca of the Old Orchard Beach Police Department @ 207-934-4911 and/or

Agent Andy Drewer

of the Portland FBI

@ 207-774-9322 

 ◀️ ◀️ ◀️ ☎️

Please help the police and FBI put this brutal, violent, psychotically deranged stalker family in prison.

Need Directions?

Rather then ask the crazy gun-toting neighbours, and risk get shot by the psychotically deranged, white power gay haters that live up and down my street, patrolling obsessively by my driveway every 15 minutes in a 4 door white pick-up truck, just get directions from Google Maps.
