Multifarious Press

Diverse books, stories, authors. Buzzwords in the writing community on Twitter and everywhere else these days. Agents, publishers, writers. So many people are talking about diversity.

But when you walk into a bookstore, or scan through Amazon or Smashwords, how many diverse books are you actually seeing put out by big presses? A few. Hopefully, more are coming.

Multifarious Press is an idea born from the desire to put diverse titles into the hands of people who want them.

MFP is committed to all forms of diversity. We want to build a list of titles in all sub-genres of diverse representation, especially own voices stories. We want the real voices, the ones who are going to resonate with others like you.

We want the stories that you had to write because you couldn’t find enough of them to read.

There are so many diverse authors, stories and readers out there, just waiting. Fantastic books that are getting shelved or worse, deleted; and diverse authors who are giving up their dreams because traditional publishing is incredibly slow on the uptake of diversity. Indie self-publishing is an incredibly successful business model for some diverse creators, but it isn’t for everyone. That’s why we’re here.

Publishing IS moving in the right direction, but one of the benefits an indie small-press has over larger ones is that we can get the books out faster and often, with better quality.

Take a look around the site, please make time to read the open letter, and if we can help get your story to the hands of readers who need it, follow our submissions process.

Thank you.
-Kaelan, Founder of Multifarious Press

Xcite Romance

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
