I have four very racy books I'd like to post.  I think they should go under "Ellora's Cave" even though it doesn't say "Ellora's Cave" anywhere on or in the book.  What should I do?  I don't want to offend anyone.

Post them by the ISBN

I don't get the issue.  Ellora's Cave is the publisher and their books don't usuallly get posted with Ellora's Cave in the name, although some might.  Just post them by ISBN. Most likely anyone who orders them will already know that Ellora's cave has sex.  Ellora's Cave is a well-known erotica publisher so I wouldn't worry too much about someone ordering one and thinkink they'll be clean. They're probably WL anyway.

If it doesn't say Ellora's Cave anywhere on the book, including on the page that lists the publisher, then you wouldn't list them as Ellora Cave books.  As mentioned above, that's the name of the publisher.  If the books have an ISBN listed, then use that to post the book.  If the book genre doesn't include "erotica", then you can click on the title, then "more options" --> "edit book data" and add the erotica genre.

You can add a description if there is none.  This should be a publisher's blurb or info from the back of the book rather than a review or an opinion about the book. 

Also under "more options" you can add a review -- this can be your opinion about the book.

Erotica flies off my shelf.  Rarely lingers for anyone to see it.

Always post books using the ISBN. People ordering them will know what they are ordering. Why would you want to post them under Elloras Cave if it doesn't say that anywhere on the book? There are several established erotica publishers besides Elloras Cave.

Erotica is fine to post on PBS.  You don't have to worry about offending anyone. I have posted erotica before and it has gotten grabbed up fast even if there weren't any WL'ers.

You can add "tags" such as "erotica", "sexually explicit", etc if you feel the need to "warn" those who might order your books.
