Who would read my non-erotica?

Some of you read my profile and asked what type of novel I might write in the future. I have always answered that I don't know, I would just wait for a novel-worthy idea to come along. Well on Thursday, I had not one, but two! So now they're outlined in my Story Ideas folder (which currently has more stories than my SOL catalog!) waiting for me to get up the courage to flesh either of them out to 80K words.

Quick poll, would you read a non-erotic story from an author whose erotica you enjoyed? What if it was from a genre that you didn't normally read?

Update on my last blog about my Sherlock Holmes story being rejected on another site because it was fan-fiction:

One of you anonymously suggested I post on fanfiction.com. It was a good suggestion so I did it, but I got only one reader response. Sigh. I marked it as Mature Adult, and they get filtered by default from all views. I can't even work out how to save search prefs there, so the only people who find my story are the ones who update their filter whenever they log in. Oh well.
