    Violence is alright as long as it is a part of the story line and not gratuitous. We dont like when the language starts getting off color not to fit a character or particular happenstance but trying to be what the author thinks a certain subset of soldiers, cops, men, women, etc. should sound like. Yuck. We have quit several authors that were passable but got mired down in the cursing.

Not being a fan of violence in books, I find less is more, and the better the writer the less direct violence they need. I am sure once you have done with the rewrites it will be perfect for almost all tastes 🙂
