    Hi,

    So, I started a Kindle journey a few weeks back. I'm getting sales for my E-books, but the low-content activity-based paperback book I published hasn't sold a single copy.

    I wonder how I can get some traction to it. Should I just publish more books?

    Also, in that vein, do people pay money for erotica stories/novels outside of Kindle or publishers in general?

    What if I publish them on my website? Would they subscribe to my list? Can I create a membership upsell for the site? Would they buy? Even if they did, will I get in hot water with paypal for selling "adult" content, even though they are just stories?

    I know that's a lot of questions, but I didn't want to clog up the forum with too many threads.

    I appreciate anyone who has the patience to read and answer my questions.

    Thanks for the help!

    You could publish teasers on your blog and sell that way, also use hire a freelancer on here and get some reviews done

    Maybe you should give up the idea to sell paper books, and focus entirely on E-books?
