Erotic romance publisher eXtasy Books and its non-erotic genre imprint Devine Destinies are open for submissions. Works must be at least 15,000 words, and romances can feature pairings of any and all genders.
In addition to accepting sweet romances, Devine Destinies is open to young adult and other genre fiction.
eXtasy and Devine Books offer royalties of 40 percent. The publisher pays monthly from sales on its website; royalties from third-party vendors are quarterly. Payments are via PayPal. The standard contract lasts three years and is for worldwide English digital rights, with an option for print or audio rights. Those latter rights are released if not used within a set period of time.
Like all traditional publishers, eXtasy and Devine provide provides editing, proofreading, cover art and formatting for all accepted works.

I do not knowingly announce submission calls by publishers who do not fulfill their contractual obligations. However, readers are responsible for conducting their own due diligence when submitting work and negotiating contracts.

This blog is queer-friendly. I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with queer/LGBTQIA characters and themes. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies, or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
