Resource Submission FAQs

What types of Resources can I submit to the Tantric Candy Resource page?

Our vision is for Tantric Candy to become THE place to go, when you want to find the Perfect Tantric Resource for you. We therefore accept a wide variety of Tantric Resources, including:

  • tantric workshops,
  • tantric events,
  • tantric massage,
  • (tantric) erotic photo-shoots,
  • tantric artwork,
  • strip-tease classes,
  • self-love,
  • tantric BDSM,
  • tantric (relationship) coaching
  • … or any other products or services that help people bring more juiciness and tantric energy into their (sex) lives.

If you are unsure whether your resource is suitable for Tantric Candy, please e-mail Charlene with a brief query before submitting.

Does it matter what Tantric School I favour or represent?

No, it does not matter at all. Here at Tantric Candy we believe that there is plenty room for everybody. An important part of the Tantric Candy Mission is to bring Tantra and the benefits of Tantric Sex into the awareness of a larger audience. We believe that the best way to do this is to show the whole range that Tantra has to offer. We don’t care if your preference is white, green, left, right, or rainbow coloured. All we care about is that more people have the opportunity connect to tantric energy and teachings, to their sexuality and life force for the benefits of their lives.

How do I submit my Resource(s) to the Tantric Candy Resource page?

You can submit your tantric Resources by filling in the form on this page.

We ask you to present your Resource and all your Tantric Services in one resource-post. By adding categories (e.g. massage, erotic dancing, tantric coaching), your resources will still be findable, even if you offer several different types of services. If you are hosting tantric events, courses and workshops, we ask you to keep things general and to refer to your own website, FB page or events page for specific details.

When you have submitted your Resource to Tantric Candy, an automated e-mail is sent to the editor, who will then process your submission. We strive publish all Resource submissions as quickly as possible and we will usually contact you and publish you post within a few working days (although it could take longer during times of high e-mail volume and during holidays). If you haven’t heard anything after 2 weeks, please send us a gently reminder – just in case your submission got lost along the way.

The editor will make a Blog or Resource Post from the information you provided, including any images you may have uploaded.

  1. You will receive e-mail from WordPress with the Subject: [Tantric Candy] Your username and password info.
    1. You need to click on the link in the e-mail to set your password.
    2. Here you can also create and change your  Nickname and Author Bio
  2. You will also receive an e-mail with the subject: [Tantric Candy] Post Status Changed for “Your Post Name”, where your post status has been changed to Published.
    1. Go to the Tantric Candy website to view your post. If you are happy with the post as it is, you do not need to do anything.
    2. If you would like to make changes to your post, please send an e-mail to the editor outlining what you want to change.

Can I submit submit several products or services to the Tantric Candy Resource page?

You can submit more products or services. For now, however, we do ask you to present your Resources and all your Tantric Services in one resource-post. By adding categories (e.g. massage, erotic dancing, tantric coaching), your resources will still be findable, even if you offer several different types of services. At the moment we are still in the process of developing the best way to present your Tantric resources. If you are a contributor, you will be notified if these guidelines change.

How long does it take before my Resource is visible on the resources page?

When you have submitted your Resource to Tantric Candy, an automated e-mail is sent to the editor, who will then process your submission. We strive publish all Resource submissions as quickly as possible and we will usually contact you and publish you post within a few working days (although it could take longer during times of high e-mail volume and during holidays).

Author Submission FAQs

How long will it take before I have a response to my submission?

Do you accept hardcopy paper submissions?

No, we only accept electronic submissions.

Will my book be edited?

Yes, literary (and energetic) editing and proofreading is part of the process. However, since we are a small, starting publishing company (without the staff or the resources for extensive editing), we do expect your manuscript to be self-edited and reasonably polished when you send it in.

Our standard contract is for worldwide rights for 3 years. After that the contract will automatically be renewed for consecutive 1-year terms if neither party gives at least thirty days advance written notice.

Why should I publish with Tantric Candy rather than doing it myself?

The main advantage with publishing with Tantric Candy is that it will save you time (to focus on your writing, your tantric practice, or any number of other things you’d rather do). Is it possible to do all the things involved with publishing and self-publish e.g. via Amazon? Of course it is. And if you already know how to do it, or are willing to invest the time into learning it, and/or already have loyal readers, chances are that that would be a better option for you. However, if you’d rather not figure out how to create beautiful covers, to do all the technical bits yourself, and do all the promotion yourself, then publishing with Tantric Candy just could be the thing for you.

Can I use my own cover art?

We will create your e-book cover design free of charge using images we have in our library or are otherwise copyright and royalty free. If you wish to provide your own image(s) or create your own cover, you are of course welcome to do so at your own expense as long as it meets our technical requirements and the cover is copyright and royalty free.

Will Tantric Candy do all the marketing?

We will market your work via different avenues, but also highly encourage you to participate in the marketing process to boost the sales of your book.

Will my book be in print? Do you sell audio books?

We are focussing on e-books, but may publish successful books in print as well. We are hoping to branch out into audio books soon.

Can I send you more than one story at a time (multiple submissions)?

Yes, we like authors who have written more than one story. If you are a new author to Tantric Candy with several stories you would like to submit, we ask you to send us three stories representing your work.

What about simultaneous submissions to different publishers?

It is okay to submit your stories to several publishers at once. However, we kindly as you to let us know and withdraw your submission with us if you have decided to publish with someone else.

I write under a pen name – can you guarantee my privacy?

We only need your real name so that we can process any royalty payments you may be entitled to. We will do everything within our power to protect your privacy.

If my story is not accepted, can I resubmit?

Yes, we look at resubmissions. Stories that have potential, but are not quite there yet, will receive a Revise and Resubmit (suggestions for revision).

Do you accept previously or currently published work?

We prefer new, unpublished works. We will consider previously published work only if it was self-published and/or you own all rights to the work.
