Yes, I am doing it again readers…. In October, I will be hosting the Sex Scene Championship. I’ve done 4 of these comps and I love it. I’ve found so many new authors on this and I know you all have too!
So what is the Sex Scene Championship? Well, authors get to pick a sex(y) scene and submit it for reader votes.
EDIT – I am adding a bit more to explain what it is …
- I put everyone’s name in a hat and draw them out randomly.
- Each scene will be put up against another authors scene (randomly pick)
- Readers vote & the winner goes through to the next round.
- There may be a Final 16, Quarter Final, Semi Final & Final round
- The winning scene is the one that wins all their rounds.
- I’ve linked the 2014 index post below so you can see how it panned out!
- The only scenes I will not accept are ones containing illegal sexual contact.
- It’s a competition so there is a possibility you won’t get through to the next round (but, it is publicity and the stats can get crazy)..
- If you do get through, you may have to promo your post through 4 rounds (Quarters, Semi Finals, Finals)
- I usually cap the scene length at 750 words and I’ve noticed that shorter scenes garner more interest.
- Prizes/Giveaways are greatly appreciated but not necessary
- All posts are available on the site for as long as it’s up. Some of the rounds get views even now!
- I will need a graphic to post with it … if you give me WIP, please give me something to go with it!
- The STATS for the 2015 event were approx 35,000 individual hits with the semi finals and finals getting approximately 5,000 of those. I have no idea how that relates to sales.
- The final round has received hits every month since that event (including 1000 in the month after the event had finished).
Below are the final rounds for 2014/2015 to give you some more idea of what we do (I didn’t do it last year!)…
