Ardent Books, the erotica imprint of Assent Publishing, a traditional publisher, is proud to publish the finest in quality erotica novels. We are actively accepting submissions from aspiring and established authors in a wide range of erotica and erotic subgenres. Stories must have a clearly recognizable hook from the start, appeal to our wide female audience and capture the male mind as well.

Assent Publishing is proud to be the first and only publisher to offer Assent Academy, a full curriculum for success, exclusively to our authors.

Accepted erotica subgenres include:

Contemporary
Paranormal
Science Fiction
Fantasy
Steampunk
Cyberpunk
Historical
Romance
Ménage
BDSM

If you write in an erotic subgenre not listed, feel free to query!

ABOUT MÉNAGE AND ROMANCE:
We won't shy away from tales of Lifestyle love or poly themes but we do have some additional guidelines. For BDSM, no hardcore BDSM acts may be portrayed, the Lifestyle itself contains plenty of mental aspects along with physical things and we would like to see that reflected in your stories. This does not mean put the whips away; it just means no brutality or kink for kink sake. We are less concerned with the number of partners and more concerned with story dynamics, plot, and great characterization. If your triad has a fourth, fine as long as it makes sense and adheres to our guidelines.

Of course, don't forget the sizzling sensuality. Capture the passion between the characters for all levels of the novel, not just the sex.

We accept completed manuscripts of 50,000 words up to 120,000 words.

What we will under no circumstances publish:

NO BESTIALITY (shifters in paranormal/sci-fi/fantasy don't count)
NO PEDOPHILIA
NO RAPE (Consensual Non Consent had better be very well written and clear.)
NO NECROPHILIA (Undead doesn't count)
NO HARDCORE BDSM
NO UNDERAGE SEX

We do not accept submissions from literary agents. Complete submission details at: www.ardentbooks.com

The publishing industry has changed drastically over the past decade and because of these changes, authors must now carry the responsibilities of marketing, promotions and publicity for their books. This is a daunting task, and many authors fail, losing their publishing contract or possibly any future contracts. It’s a hard, cold fact … an author’s books must sell and sell well for the publishing machine to keep moving.

Understanding these challenges, Assent Publishing has taken special efforts to offer success tools for our authors. The Assent Academy was developed specifically for Assent Publishing authors.
