Erotica For All can exclusively reveal that interesting plans are afoot at Xcite Books HQ…
Xcite Books Ltd is launching a One-Stop Shop for romantic and erotic ebooks and audio formats from publishers and authors around the globe. It offers a unique shopping experience for customers because they can discover new authors and publishing companies alongside their established favourites. For publishers and authors it offers the opportunity to upload their content, set pricing and view live sales stats within their own supplier account.
The site is the result of two years of development but Hazel Cushion, MD at Accent Press is delighted with the superior functionality and Content Provider interface. “It was vital that Content Providers had access to live sales stats and to control their title content and pricing” she explained. Accent Press saw a nine-fold increase in ebook sales in 2010 with most sales being achieved by their erotic imprint, Xcite Books. “It has been a major commitment for us but we believe there’s great potential in selling our titles alongside those of other publishers and authors. There is such a breadth of range in the romance and erotica genres that offering a one-stop-shop makes a great deal of sense.”
The site will be launched on February 14th, St Valentine’s Day and will replace Xcite’s three current sites that serve the UK, USA / Canada and Australia / New Zealand markets. Content Partners can access the customer base of these sites plus the affiliate programme will encourage website operators, authors, readers and bloggers to drive traffic and sales. There are no set-up fees and Content Partners get paid 60% of all sales.
Authors are also welcomed by the site providing their work is ISBN registered. This offers an exciting opportunity to both new authors and those with backlist eBooks rights. They can also promote themselves with through their own information page where photos, author information and links to blogs can be added.
