I wrote and published this piece of shit book in less than 1 hour. It is riddled with mistakes, grammar problems, and it's like 10 pages long. Yet somehow it (along with other shitty self pubbed books) has made me decent money. This is the state of the world folks. This is the future of literature right here. Fuck your Tolstoys and Moby Dicks, Leprechaun's getting they dicks sucked is /lit/
Great question. I would have to say John Green. The way he writes is just masterful. In a lot of ways his stories remind my audiences of my works with how they capture life's true struggle. For example dying of cancer is just as tragic as being a horny big foot monster without any poon in your forest.
No. I don't want to pander to the blacks.
Listen, crap is king and it always has been.
I don't know why you're blathering on dumbly about this is "the future of literature", when shit has sold well for eons.
You only think all the books published before are good because that's all that has stood the test of time. For every great classic, there are literally thousands of titles of schlock garbage pap that sold right beside it.
Don't you think there's something wrong that this guy's story makes more money than a lot of other good works? And he can do it in far less time. I wrote a book and it's nowhere near 500 units sold. That's depressing.
If it's wrong, it's been wrong forever.
If you don't want to throw your integrity as an artist out, expect late recognition if any comes at all. Well-written and artistic texts require more time and effort, so it will be a while till those-who-matter catch on.
If you want to be rich and famous now, appeal to the lowest common denominator and shut the fuck up.
You either take your time and write with care and you'll be remembered after your death or you fire of garbage unthinkingly, gain huge traction, then putter out before you've even croaked.
1. What application or service did you use to publish it? I'm really desperate for money and I would like to imitate your success.
2. What did you use to induce the state of mind which supressed the critical instinct, assuming you possess one from the fact that you knew there were grammatical errors in it that it.
1. Amazon. You can write it all in word, save it as a doc and then upload it straight to amazon
2. I knew going in these would be bad because I don't care. I know they are shit. I know the idea is shit. I, just like you wanted some money. I set my phone's timer for 1 hour, and I told myself I had to have it done in that time (this includes the cover) because I didn't want to waste any more time on that shit.
Wow you wrote ten of these fucking things huh.
I really respect you and I don't want to sound like I'm trying to be aloof or talk down to you, because I'm not, I really wish I could do this, but I think I have too much integrity to try this even though the cash would be great.
Good work OP. But will it stand the test of time like the classics of the genre?
$2.99 it works out to about $2 a book after Amazon takes a cut.
I wrote 30 I have a few pseudonyms for different genres of erotica. All of them are equally as shitty. Try writing a book you actually put your heart and soul in to for over a year, and then see that it gets like 1 sale a month if that. Like the other person said it's depressing. Especially when this shit sells like crazy.
I found out my grandpa wrote smut books and I wanted to make him proud
I have 2 big sellers. 1 is a billionaire short story which is just a 50 shades rip off. The other one is pictured and it's about some house wife that gets raped by Big foot. I honestly don't understand how I've literally made thousands off of a book that has big foot raping someone.
gay erotica is really big that's a good choice. I've actually considered doing it for my next pseudonym. That's the trick. You have to find niches that people want to read. For some reason housewives just love reading about big foots raping them. They fantasize about it.
My brain. Most of the time I think of the stupidest idea and then I write it. The trick is to just turn your filter off. It's actually a good exercise if you're a real author.
You sign up for a publishers account which gets linked to a real bank account and you have to give them info for tax purposes so amazon knows, but no one else should be able to.
I'd be interested in reading a serious, plot-driven novel about big foot raping housewives that's heavy on character development and explores the themes of what it means to truly be human, quite frankly.
I put in a little comedy but people buy erotica to get off so I try and keep it sexy. The premise is in itself comedy, but you don't want to fap to Adam Sandler you want to fap to some big titty Chilean slut.
Nothing. You can probably upload your old stories and make a few bucks. I honestly wonder if amazon is a new age way to launder money because there is no way some of these books let along mine should be making money
Give it a try. It's possible. I'm not going to lie and pretend this is the new gold rush. I know some of the shitty books I sell don't sell so don't go into it thinking you're going to be affording the top shelf hookers next week (I myself can only afford the $200 ones on backpage though some months I spring for a nice one to just to treat myself)
How exactly do these things sell? Do you just write them, put them on Amazon and then people who are just searching around for weird sex shit find it and you make money? I find it hard to believe it's that simple.
What's your best seller?
What work are you most proud of? Do you have a favourite passage or anything of the sort?
Also, could you post some sort of proof you're for real. I can't imagine what that proof would be, but this sounds like a joke.
Most of what I use is straight from wikipedia lol. You can also use free trials on stock image websites. And there's a trick that if you image search I think its img:istock and then the name of the image you want you'll see the ones people bought from the stock websites but that's probably not legal so I can't condone it. Wikipedia is the way to go since it's all free commons. Just photoshop it up.
I have no fucking clue. I think it's all about seo. I might have just been lucky with the tags (you get like 7) and picked good ones that people search for that aren't oversaturated. It's not simple, anyone who's self pubbed their masterpiece can tell you that. Before these I wrote a book under my real name and it sold like 10 copies and I think my grandma bought 1 of them.
None of the eroticas lol. Most of what I write in these things is shit but there's a few lines that make me laugh.
I think they don't want incest stuff, child stuff (obviously) or bestiality but for some reason sex with mythical animals is a loophole.
dont buy it im honestly just here to help because someone did one of these almost a year ago and it got me going so now I figured it was my turn
You don't have to be in the US. I don't think you can use paypal.
Nothing is wrong with using free to use on wikipedia. You're not going to get the nicest pictures to use. But that's the cost of free. The last way I mentioned is wrong and I don't do that.
it's fine thechive recently wrote an article on this and tons of people are doing this monster stuff so it won't matter if a couple of my /lit/ bros do it. In fact I'd rather you get a piece then some other person. I moved on to another niche too which I think is hot right now
I was testing something out but there's also a strategy employed by some of the major erotica churners that takes the basic principal of mad libs and applies it to erotica. What I mean by this is, a lot of authors write one story, take out character names, sexual niches etc and then replace them with new ones as if they were mad libs so that they can effectively sell the story twice but in a different market.
Dinosaurs are a bestiality loophole too, right? Or have the dinosex books been banned?
Also, did you do any research in terms of finding out how these porn books operate? I've never read one for obvious reasons, and there must be a lot of standard tropes to incorporate.
People have always bought trash and there have always been people like you that would deliver it OP. Literary fiction has always been a preserve of the intellectual turds like classical music and theater.
I'm skeptical of your success though. I don't know why 500 people bought your book unless you paid reviewers. Which I know happens quite a bit. It's not exactly a great income though. That's $1000 in a year? I suppose it's good for an hour though. But I don't believe that. It takes like 3 hours to format a fucking ebook properly and you'd have to have written like 100 words a minute.
You only need to replicate that success like 40 times a year to be making a decent living.
My mind is literally blown that OP was being serious - i thought he was making this shit up but then i looked that he's actually selling that shit for 5 bucks a piece.
I'm having a hard time he sold 500 copies though, it simply can't be unless he put up ads in all of the mental institutions in the US.
the way women are aroused cant stop fascinating me.
>tfw sexting with a grill from the other side of the world and im gonna use some of the things she reacted well to in my book
it was a while ago so i cant remeber the exact details. the thing i noticed while sexting with her (and others, also from different cultures) is that women are aroused by men being aroused by them. we see tits/ass and were aroused, they see a man lusting after them and that makes them wet. a major difference when you think about it.
also they dont rely on visual imagery and facts as much. but everything auditory, oh my. moaning and grunting. shit, dont even start me on whispering
arms are important, moving them, holding them. eye contact is big. i figured keeping it simple is the best way most of the times, so tight pussies and cocks moving in, girls being thrown around and pushed onto the bed. they love cum because it means they are hot. they love hard dick because it means they are hot. she is desired. when she feels desired she cums
as a man you have to constantly remind yourself it doesnt actually matter how the situation looks like but what the psychological implications are. men being dominant and losing control because of how hot she is what its all about.
we desire, they want to feel desired. so make em feel desired
Rugged manliness, exotic desert locations, dangerous power dynamics, the temptations of the forbidden... It basically has it all. Except mythical creatures, I guess. Maybe throw in an Islamist genie?
