Episode 12: Sales and Money

Hey guys,

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Just a question for the show, as an unpublished author who is considering writing erotica, I’m interested in what the likely hood of making a living from erotica is.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.

Shiftland Tales Volume 2: Wet and Dry: Gay Shapeshifter Erotica

Shiftland Tales 2 1563x2500by H. K. Kiting and Dean Chills


Two more erotic shapeshifter tales from the authors of “The Luckiest Man” and the “Rick and Owen Breathplay Series.” In these two short stories, set in the same world as “Shiftland Tales: Tentacles” the spread of the Shifters has continued. The cities are all but uninhabitable, and the survivors have evacuated into the wilderness. Unfortunately, they soon find that the world outside civilization has changed as well.

David travels alone. Running low on supplies, he stops at a beautiful pond to refill his canteen. The area looks safe, so he takes time for a swim. Something out there wants his seed.

Chris has been living in a cave for three months, watching the progression of the fall of Las Vegas. Little does he know that mankind’s absence has allowed older things, long thought to be myths, to return.

Check out these two new erotic tales of apocalyptic horror, where nothing is what it seems.
