Newsletter Submission Guidelines

Are you interested in putting your book into the Excite Steam newsletter? Please read our guidelines before you submit your promotion!

WHERE WILL YOU LIST MY BOOK?

  • SUBSCRIBE to our newsletter – targeted marketing to erotica fans who will receive our newsletter deals.

  • FACEBOOK – Books will be featured on our Facebook page

  • WEBSITE – Your book will be featured on our website

BOOK REQUIREMENTS

 QUALITY

We are looking for quality erotica. Your cover, blurb, and customer reviews will be evaluated. We do not require your book have reviews, but if your book is new, the quality of your back catalog may be assessed in determining whether or not your promotion is accepted. Note: We reserve the right to deny or cancel any promotion at any time for any reason.

LENGTH

We accept short stories, novellas, novels, bundles/boxed sets, etc. Pricing should reflect the length of the work and may be a factor in acceptance.

DISCOUNT REQUIREMENTS

We will accept books at the following prices (this applies to both the daily newsletter and the Friday Feature):

  • FREE (permafree will be considered)
  • $0.99 (must be discounted to $0.99)
  • $2.99 – full length works (novels 40K+) and bundles/boxed sets at this price point will be considered.

Discount pricing must remain in effect for 24 hours after the day of promotion and your book should not be offered at a better price within five days after your promotion.

FREQUENCY

One promotion per pen name is allowed every THREE (3) days. The same title will not promoted again until 30 days have passed from the last promotion.

HARD LIMITS

The following is where we draw the line:

  • No underage sex—a controversial topic to say the least. Since we are based in the U.S. and considering the current political climate, we have to say that underage is defined as someone under the age of 18.
  • No rape—this is a soft boundary. We do accept some dubious and even non-consent. Submit it and we’ll see!
  • No necrophilia/snuff —no surprise, the dead folks are still off-limits, folks. Of course, this doesn’t include the UNdead (vampires).
