A silly issue, today.
Cussing in Cozy Mysteries, to be exact.
So many Cozies exude a warm, fuzzy, family, PG-feel. Something you can read out loud to your grandmother. Foul language is watered down to an occasional, earth-shattering “damn.”
This is not The Shallcross Burden.
Certain of my characters curse, richly. That is simply who they are.
Will this alienate too much of my Cozy’s audience? Should I worry?
All answers receive grandmother-friendly thanks.
