Submission guidelines: your short story should not already be published anywhere in the world. Thematically, it should be written with the Xcite guidelines in mind. Obviously you will not be tied to having to provide detailed plot, numerous characters and enough varied types of sex to fill a novel, but the story should be about more than 'some people having sex'. The emphasis is on intensity, imagination, erotic tension, pleasure and explicit action and what's-at-stake for the main character. We want to position these as suitable for the general reader as well as erotica fans.
We pay a flat fee of £50 providing your story is 2 - 4000 words (though 4K is preferred). Payment is made on publication; letter of acceptance is issued one month prior to publication. Accent Press will retain worldwide publication, e-book and audio copyright for five years. Please ensure full rights are available before submitting stories (we do not make exceptions to our standard contract).
Xcite Writer's Guidelines
Content: We are looking for variety in the themes with a high standard of writing. All sexual acts must be consensual and legal. These stories are aimed at female readers so must celebrate female sexuality in all its forms and never denigrate women. Variety is the spice of life so giving your story an unusual setting, time period or style will help your chances of being accepted. We do accept stories from male writers and they can have a male POV but PLEASE remember they must celebrate female sexuality and be empowering to women.
Due to the volume of submissions I regret that I will not be able to return rejected manuscripts so please do keep a copy of your work. Please send submissions as a WORD attachment to your email, NOT within the content of your message.
  
Format: Double spaced, 12 font and Times New Roman
Cover page must include your name, address and contact details PLUS your pseudonym if you are using one.

Thanks for making an editor's life easier!
Please send manuscripts as a Word attachment, and email to: submissions@xcitebooks.com

Editors: Miranda Forbes and Lucas Steele
