Xcite Books, the UK’s largest erotic publisher, is launching its second annual awards programme celebrating the best of the adult industry. From now until the end of December members of the trade and public can nominate their favourite companies, reviewers, bloggers and sexperts for the Xcite Awards 2013.
Xcite Books MD Hazel Cushion [pictured left, presenting the 2012 Best Publication Award to ETO editor Dale Bradford] said: “In a year which has seen erotic fiction move off the top shelf and onto the supermarket shelf, it’s still important we recognise the people who are making this genre such a success.”
There are five categories in the Xcite Awards: Best Internet Retail Site, Best Blog or Author Page, Best Reviewer, Best Sexpert and Best Publication. Last year’s winners were, respectively, Lovehoney, Cara Sutra, Sextoytesters, Violet Blue and ETO Magazine.
To nominate your favourites for the 2013 Awards visit www.xcitebooks.com and click on the link to the dedicated Facebook page. Nominations can be submitted between up until 30th December. The six finalists from each category will be announced on 1st January 2013 and a public poll will then open to select the final winners in each category.
The closing date for public voting will be the 13th February 2013 and the winner will be announced the following day.
