From this episode of the podcast:
Episode 12: Sales and Money
Henry: Let’s check the mailbag.
Michael wrote in way back in July and asked:
Just found the podcast last week and I have listened to all the episodes already. I’m impatiently waiting for the next episode.
Just a question for the show, as an unpublished author who is considering writing erotica, I’m interested in what the likely hood of making a living from erotica is. I understand that you’ve mentioned the price of $2.99 selling more copies than cheaper listings, but how many sales do you average per book per month? Did writing 20+ books increase the number of sales of your older books? I am interested in how well erotica writing will allow a person to spend the time to work on their other lines of fiction. I understand you can not guarantee what any other author’s writing will or won’t sell for, but if you can just give ball-park numbers of what you’ve experienced would be really great.
Thank you for your time.
