Call for Submissions

Xcite Publishing is looking for novels and novellas for their Xcite Romance imprint.

Xcite is a royalty paying publisher, offering competitive rates to authors - we have very high standards, but welcome work from all authors, new or published.

Standard royalties are 25% on ebook and 20% on audio, and all rights must be available or we aren't able to take the book on. Xcite Books takes five years exclusive rights world wide.

All works must fit into the Xcite Romance range, which is designed to offer a powerful, provocative and passionate reading experience. The writing must be of the highest calibre with well-developed plotlines and three dimensional characters. We need strong Alpha male heroes and feisty but lovable females who come together in a happy ever after ending. The setting and timeline are completely flexible — either contemporary or historic but no time-travel or sci-fi please. Above all, we require originality in the storyline — the erotic romance genre is overloaded with heroes who are bounty hunters, navy SEALS and billionaires (or a combination of the three...), so give us everyday Joes and Josephines who are looking for lasting love, as well as high-flyers and characters in impossibly glamorous professions. There needs to be strong erotic tension and sensual scenes throughout the story and a climatic, explicit erotic ending. The eroticism needs to come from the quality of writing and build of tension rather than graphic, hard core action.

As with all of our titles the story needs to be female friendly and all intimacy must be consensual. Due to the emphasis on romance and the target markets the following should not be included:
Strong BDSM — some play bondage or gentle spanking is acceptable
Male on male action
Golden showers
Threesomes/orgies

Word length: novellas 20-25,000 words
Novels: 60,000 - 80,000 words
Target Reader: Female

What to submit: For novellas, please send the full novella along with a brief synopsis. For novels, send the first three chapters, along with a detailed synopsis. If you are submitting a proposal for a three-book series, we need the first three chapters of the first novel in the series and a full synopsis, along with full outlines for books two and three.

Manuscripts can be submitted via the form at
