Book Contest

Second Annual BDSM Book Contest

We are working with several publishers again this year including Riverdale Avenue Books to provide you with an opportunity to have your BDSM book published. For our BDSM Book Contest of 2014, Decadent Publishing & Riverdale Avenue Books handed out three book contracts. Another three book contracts from Totally Bound are pending. This is a great opportunity for new authors to obtain their first book contract and established authors to try a new line or enhance the one they already have.

Our BDSM Book Contest is open to both published and unpublished authors in any genre including LGBT, romance, horror, steampunk, mainstream, paranormal, etc.

Our BDSM Book Contest categories are as follows:

Dominant men – submissive women

Dominant women—submissive men

LGBTQ – Dominance & submission

Non-fiction books on Dominance & submission
