    Hello!

    I write erotica ebooks, and unfortunately I have had great difficulty in selling them, marketing them, really anything involved in anything OTHER than writing them. I tend to bang out (haha) a 25-50 page novella a month, across all sorts of erotic genres.

    I have been told by the FEW reviews I have received that my stuff is good. Like I said, I am a very good writer, just a clueless noob at marketing my works and whatnot. So, one night while searching online for help I stumbled onto BHW. Based on what I have read here I am very encouraged that I have finally found a place that will be able to help me learn how to better market and sell my ebooks.

    Then again, ANY improvement would be colossal compared to what I am doing now. I have this idea where I would have my own domain and webage highlighting my works and pointing people in the direction of Amazon, iTunes, Smahswords etc etc (I have stuff on many ebook seller sites).
    Sadly, my ambition outstretches my ability when it comes to all this.

    My long term goal is to be able to support myself financially from my writings. I don't have to be making huge money, just enough to not have to get up 7am for work in retail. I see myself living on a sailboat somewhere writing from my laptop while my dog chews my slippers and my gf burns my morning toast and I laugh about it.

    Anyway, its great to be here and I look forward to learning a lot! Oh and if anyone has ANY ideas about how to help me, I am all ears!

    have a funky day!

    Welcome! You say you're a good erotica writer... Hmm... How about speading around some free review copies and then getting the same fact told by our members? :)

    And may be I am telling this to the wrong person, but you shouldn't be on the lappy all the time, esp with a romantic girl around, or you'll always get your buns roasted and the creams licked by someone else, the doggy, for example! ;) Get more natural more often.

    Ok so I have it set up where you folks can read one of my ebooks for free on Amazon. I just don't know the rules regarding posting a link or anything and I don't want to violate any guidelines. If someone can chime in that'd be great.

    Oh and after spending a lot of time reading BHW I am very tempted to do the whole SEO thing using one of the complete package services advertised here.

    anyway have a groovy day
