Security & Copyright

We're writers too, so we strongly believe author’s should retain their copyrights. We ask authors to sign a limited release before using their story. Copyright is retained by the author at all times. Once past our initial round, we pay for the right to use an author’s work (another thing we feel strongly about).


Better Sex Summer Erotic Fiction Contest – How It Works
We’ve changed the contest this year, so please review this area carefully.

- Authors may submit as many stories as they like.
- Prizes are awarded to stories, so an author may win multiple prizes.
- Stories will be selected by BetterSex.com staff each week.
- Selected stories are awarded a “Publication Slot” to go online where the BetterSex.com
community can vote on their favorite.
- Authors whose stories are selected for voting will sign a limited release, no prize money is
awarded at this stage.
- Voting ends every Monday morning.
- 11 stories will become “Weekly Winners”, near a $100 prize, will be included in the semi-final
round of voting and will be published in our 2008 book.
- All Weekly Winners will be included in Finalist Voting to determine three finalists. Each finalist
will be awarded another $100 prize.
- One Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the three finalists by a panel of judges.
- Stories are read in the order they are received, but publication slots are awarded on merit
(explained below).

 

Thank you for all the submissions!!
We are no longer accepting stories for the Summer Erotic Fiction Contest. We are now accepting story submissions to fill the Fall Fiction Contest story slots.

 



Rules:

1. Who is eligible
Any adult from anywhere on the planet may enter the Better Sex Summer Erotic Fiction Contest. Past winners came from New Zealand, France and Germany. Prizes are awarded in US currency (sorry). This means you can live anywhere and we will get your check to you if you win, but you must be at least 18 years old to enter.

2. Every Week Is A Deadline
Each week we move three stories online for voting. As we receive great stories they are moved into “publication slots”. There are 33 “publication slots” because this year’s contest lasts for 11 weeks. Once a publication slot is filled, the author is notified and asked to sign a limited release.

3. Weekly Winners
We review all stories and select 3 stories per week as weekly winners. Each weekly winner will receive a $10.00 coupon from BetterSex.com for publishing their story as a Weekly Winner.

4. Competition For Publication Slots
Last year we received over three hundred erotic fiction stories. We may double that number this year. In order for your story to have a chance at a publication slot you should send it to Email Us right away. We acknowledge receipt of all stories, so if you do not receive a confirming email in 48 hours, please resend.

5. $2,340 Prize
One story will win the day and the grand prize. Only weekly winners are eligible to win the Grand Prize.

6. Voting
We give authors as much pre-notice of their publication slot as possible so they can rally friends and family to vote. Voting lasts for a week. Only one vote is allowed per computer address. If you have a computer and work and at home, you may vote for your story twice, but please do not attempt to vote more than once per computer. Any scripting or stuffing to increase votes will disqualify an author.

7. Privacy, Security and Pen Names
Every winning author last year requested use of a pen name. Our Better Sex Erotic Fiction Release Form asks for pen names. Only pen names appear online. All author information is confidential and never shared.

8. Email
We use our weekly broadcast emails to share contest results. Authors are not automatically subscribed to our email list. Click Here to subscribe to BetterSex.com emails. We use a double opt-in process, so you will not be part o four list until you click on the confirming email.

9. Story Length Guideline – 3,000 Words
We are looking for great erotic writing. That is the single most important criteria. Our general guideline is 3,000 words, but this is not a limit. The only limit we have is the quality of the work and quality is usually apparent in the first sentence.

10. Only Original Unpublished Work
Authors must submit original unpublished work. Any unnoted use of another author’s work or submission of an already published will disqualify the author.

11. Legalese
The Better Sex Erotic Fiction Contest is a contest of skill and presented as entertainment. It is not a sweepstakes and is void where prohibited by law. Authors agree that BetterSex.com and its parent company are acting in good faith, have outlined in detail how author’s intellectual property will be considered and published (only with signed release) so no damages can occur. Authors must only submit original unpublished work and, in so doing, authors agree to fully indemnify BetterSex.com and its parent company to any and all third party claims relating to an author’s submission. (This sentence means if you crib a story, present it as original and we publish it we will refer the complaining lawyers to you) BetterSex.com and our parent company can not be held liable for stories that are lost or that can not be opened. Judges decisions are final. BetterSex.com can change these rules at any time and for any reason. (We don’t plan to change the rules, but if we need to comply with a federal or state law we will.) Submitting a story to the Better Sex Erotic Fiction Contest means you’ve read, understand and will abide by these rules.
