For several years, I have been writing for magazines, newspapers, websites, etc. pretty much anyone I could get an assignment (and check) from. While writing for such places has been my bread and butter, and the way that I feed my kids, I never really liked it. I hated constantly having to send out query letters, dealing with rude sources, and writing about things I didnt know anything about. Ive always been more of a creative writer and I loved writing romance books in my spare time. Thats why, when a friend of mine introduced me to self-publishing, I knew that I had to at least try it out!
I published the six novels that I had written in my spare time over the years to see if this was going to be something that I wanted to pursue. The day after the books were published, I had made 19 sales! Since then, Ive been hooked.
For the next couple of months, I continued to write and publish my romance novels as quickly as I could until I decided to try something new. The same friend who introduced me to self-publishing also publishes erotic short stories and she tells me all the time about how the earning potential is higher for erotic shorts for two main reasons.
  1. There is such a huge market for erotic short stories on Amazon and erotica is the best performing genre on the site.
  2. Short stories dont take as much time to write as novels but can still be priced fairly high.
So, I decided to give it a go. I wrote an erotic short story based on one of the main characters of one of my novels, and published it as an ebook only on Amazon. The story was only about 3,000 words but I priced it at 2.99, as my friend told me to. Sure enough, a week went by and my story had been performing really, really well! Thats when I decided that I wanted to focus mainly on writing erotic short stories.
So, I decided to do something even crazier my goal was to publish 100 erotic short stories in 12 months. I began to write my butt off, writing 5 to 10 of these stories a month, while continuing to write for trade magazines and websites. It definitely took hard work and determination, but I did it.
A couple of days ago I published my 100th story and, this month, I received my biggest check yet for a little over $10,000! Here are some things to consider if you want to self-publish erotic fiction:
Price and Length:
Although most of the content I write is short stories, I do occasionally publish novels. Here is how I price all of my work:
EBOOK PRICING SUGGESTIONS
$0.99 > Short Shorts: Under 3K
$2.99 > Stories: 3-15K
$3.99 > Stories: 15-35K
$4.99 > Stories: 35-50K
$5.99 > Novels: 50-70K
$6.99 > Novels: 70-90K
$7.99> Novels: 90-110K
$8.99> Novels: 110-130K
$9.99> Novels: 130-150K
PROMOTION
Fortunately, the famous saying sex sells is extremely true, meaning that promotion for short stories is very simple. I barely do any promotion for my short stories. I have a website that I post links to my stories on, and I also have a newsletter that I set up for free. Every time I publish a new story I let my newsletter subscribers know, and I occasionally give new subscribers a free story.
However, some people dont know how to write but are still making thousands of $$$ daily by selling erotic stories Online. Not everyone has a calling to write and WOW people with their content but that shouldnt limit you from earning online via selling erotic stories. Hence just in case you cant write, here is a way to earn massively too; get a freelancer and outsource the writing job to them. They are usually very cheap and for as little as $50 you can get up to 3000 words which is perfect for an erotic story. And the most interesting part is that they will hand over the copyrights of the story entirely to you and then you can sell the book online.
So you see? Its a win-win. I have used this strategy over the past 10 years to yield massive profits. I normally make use of >> https://goo.gl/0wlI7D.
