TV sexpert Tracey Cox, the self-styled ‘boudoir babe’ Cara Sutra and the woman behind Fannying Around , London’s monthly get together for women to discuss their intimate parts, are just some of the erotic professionals shortlisted in the Xcite Awards 2013.
Now in its second year the Xcite Awards, organised by one of the UK’s leading publishers of erotic fiction Xcite Books, celebrates and recognises companies, reviewers, bloggers and sexperts who value and support erotic fiction.
‘Last year saw a huge surge in interest in erotic fiction following the massive success of Fifty Shades of Grey,’ explained Hazel Cushion, Managing Director at Xcite Books.
‘The internet and the advent of ebooks has completely changed the erotic fiction market and as yet there’s no recognition of this. Customers now have a wealth of review sites, author blogs and internet retailers to choose from so we feel it is important to highlight and celebrate the dedication of the people behind them.’
The shortlist has been drawn from nominations cast by Xcite Books customers, associates and members of the public. Voting for the finalists is now open until February 13th and the winners will be announced on St Valentine’s Day 2013. Each winner will receive a specially commissioned glass book.
Voting is restricted to one vote per category, per person and is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XciteAwards2013
