Thank you for your interest in publishing with Blushing Books. You may be interested to learn that Blushing (formerly ABCD Graphics and Design) is the oldest erotic eBook publisher on the web. We have been publishing erotic fiction on the web since 1998 and publishing eBooks since 2003.
We pay our authors some of the highest rates in the industry, and unlike some publishers who scale rates based on copies sold, we pay our full rate from the first copy out the door.
Our authors receive 50% of revenue on eBook titles. Any author that places more than ten titles with us receives 60% on any new titles. (Revenues on titles for the Blushing Books in-house store are calculated after a 10% credit card processing fee is deducted.)
We pride ourselves on our quick response times to writers. Your submission will be acknowledged (and assigned to a reader) by the next business day, and you will receive a response within 1-2 weeks. In general we publish within 1-2 months of acceptance. If you send us a workable manuscript, it is reasonable for you to expect publication within 2-3 months of the time we first receive an email from you.
We are not a subsidy or vanity publisher. Our authors pay no fees for editing or cover art, or any document preparation.
We’re ALWAYS looking for new authors and new titles.
What do we accept?
We are primarily a publisher of spanking novels, and that genre is a broad one. Blushing Books publishes many books with a good deal of erotic content, but we also publish non-sexual stories containing discipline spanking scenes.
We publish all sorts of material: everything from Christian/Inspirational spanking stories, to advice books, and all the way to hot and spicy BDSM stories containing elements of ageplay, bondage, master/slave, and bottom-play and enemas.
The content of our stories could be rated ‘PG’ all the way to books that are so hot they wouldn’t HAVE a rating, but they are ALL geared for adult readers (18+) only.
