Erotica Writer looking to expand - Help appreciated
I have done over 1000! pages of erotic writing for clients here and there but I feel I have tapped my current pool of potential clients (places like deviant art and criags list) and I was hoping for some help on where I should go to scare up more business. I do this as a part-time job, mostly for fun, but I would like to make it into my full living and quit my... horrible job.
Well... One start would be to have some contact details (as in personal messaging enabled) here so that people who want to offer or suggest something to you without publicly disclosing their rl identities - can.
You don't mention having gone the Amazon.com or Smashwords, etc. route in saying you've tried it all. If you haven't published through such an e-book service, that's usually where people start (who want to make money off the writing). If all you have is short stories, you can do anthologies. But folks are publishing pretty short standalones too.
Published at eXcessica, BarbarianSpy, and Cyberworld Publishing under the names habu and Dirk Hessian.
From 4-star 1 May 2011 review by Examiner.comís Acquanetta Ferguson of menage novella Dark Primeval: There is also something to be said for a man who writes erotica. Some donít get it and write porn, but Habu gets what erotica is all about and the story comes off as a powerful read.
Also, coauthoring as Shabbu and Stephen Kessel with Sabb:
From the 4 1/2-Star August Rainbow Review on I Met a Man: . . . a thoroughly wonderful reading experience for me. I look forward to reading more from the writing collaboration of habu and Sabb, who I believe make an important contribution to gay literature.
