Topic What's the secret?
Posted 15 Apr 2015 20:30



Actually, with one of your ebooks presently showing a sales rank at the 200k range, it doesn't look like you're doing too badly if you look at the ranks of a lot of other erotica titles on Amazon. On FB, it helps to join a few of the erotic book fan groups where you can post ads/announcements of your titles. I know one author who does most of her posting early on Sunday mornings. She says this always stimulates sales. I haven't had as predictable experience, but then I'm not willing to get up that early. It's best to be consistent, though, so your name and titles become more and more familiar to more and more people.

Even more importantly...keep writing! There's nothing like putting out a new ebook to get fresh attention, and this helps bring new readers to the titles you've already published. Just keep at it.

It's tough for indie authors especially, but there are plenty of people who support them. It's worth trying to connect with a publisher, too, since having a publisher's imprint on your book never hurts. There's still a lot of self-promotion involved, but having that behind you is a good thing. It tells readers who don't know who you are that a publisher thought enough of your work to invest their resources into publishing it. Either way...with or without a publisher...hang in there for the long haul.

I think you may be reading that wrong, I've sold 4 books and made $3.00 since January 1st. I sold 9 and made $8.00 all of last year. I gave away 112 for free in 2013

I've done all the hard work. wrote the story, formatted it into an e-book, figured out how to get published on Amazon, found and joined all the erotica websites, got myself on Twitter and Facebook, gave away the free samples, how do I get people to click on that link. I'm not asking anyone to take out a 2nd mortgage most folks spend 3 times more than 2 bucks on lunch everyday. I've got two stories here with 40,000 views. I just need to figure out how to get people to take that last step across the finish line and click the download button.

If there wasn't anything sexual about it no one would notice whether people took their clothes off or not. They would be busy doing yoga and not leering at other people. It would still just be yoga not "Nude" yoga.

Topic Should Erotica concentrate more on the story or the action?
Posted 07 Mar 2013 16:08

There are only so many ways to describe a big cock entering a wet pussy/ tight asshole/ willing mouth. For me, the turn on is the setting of the scene and the dialogue between characters. The build up of sexual tension and desire is often more exciting than the sex that transpires.

I agree with this completely. I get so many messages saying the story was great but we want, more action and I really don't know what more there is to say in describing two people fucking. I try to concentrate on the story, character development, and how the characters feel because I can think of only so many ways to say he stuck his big hard dick in her wet slippery pussy.

It was helpful, thank you.

I'm thinking I'd either want something simple like this one, it seems to be easy to understand.

Or this one because it's bigger, and a fire. But it seems really confusing.
Kindle Fire - The Tablet

Both are great prices, so I'm not sure which way to go. Any suggestions on these two Kindles? :)

Cheers

It came down to these two for me a few months ago too. I went with the Kindle Fire. I wanted to do some things other than read books, and it plays videos, runs apps and surfs the web just fine. I love it, but the reviews are right it is mostly for reading books from amazon, if you really into doing other things a ipad or something is probably better

I'm also not really as angry as I may sound about it. Several people have sent me apology messages when I tell them I'm not into that. I just try to politely let them know that I'm not offended, I'm just not interested in that. My personal opinion is that I enjoy,and am aroused, by people being sexually aroused by my stories. I do not enjoy people being aroused by me. While I am flattered that so many people find me attractive, I feel that any one-on-one sexual roleplay with anyone other than my husband is a form of cheating. Since I'm new here I am interested in other women's opinion on this. Am I out of line being uncomfortable with such activity on a site like this?



ok ... hunnie ... relax!!

With reference to your only question in your opening post .... I think you had a few answers at the beginning until members told you why you were being inundated with requests, etc.

Honestly, the majority of us don't give a crap who's cheating, who's just playing, who's fake, who's real .... just try to enjoy Lush for what it is ... a great place to showcase your writing, if you are a writer; a fabulous place to read some great stories; if you choose to chat and become friendly with other members, you have that opportunity.

So ... relax ... and try to enjoy it.



No Thanks!
Since that's how my opening post was interpreted, I'll clarify my position.

Enough Already!

If you want me to be a bitch, fine I'll be one!

For everyone who says if you don't want attention don't put up sexy pics, or don't post sexy things. You know what,you are not going to win this argument. I have what you want. I can post naked pics, I can Tweet that I'm naked right now, horny and want to fuck, I can invite you to a cyber session, and guess what when you message me all I have to do is not click on the box. I don't have to go invisible, I don't have to stay off the site, all I have to do is ignore you. You can call me a bitch, slut, or whore if you want, but all you can do is come here and pout, or go over in the corner and spank your little monkey BY YOURSELF!! Don't take your frustrations on girls that tease you here and won't put out on me. All I asked you chicken chokers was if you thought cybersex was cheating on your spouse. I didn't say I felt harassed, I didn't say I think anyone shouldn't do it and I didn't tease anyone here.

A few people may agree that I'm the one in the wrong on this forum, but I ALWAYS WIN. I can post anything I want, make it as sexy as I want, and if I say no to cyber, for whatever reason, that's the end of it. You can't kick me off this site, you can't report me to anyone. ALL YOU CAN DO IS GET MAD.

omg ... what a hilarious thread!!

Half way down, the OP posted her ultimate question on whether cybering is cheating or not. hahaha

Too bad the OP didn't post that first, there might not have been such fireworks !

My take on the cheating/cybering thing is that it is for some "cheating" on their SO ... for others, this is just a Lush Playground that is their secret. Who am I to judge?


I so love some of the entertainment here!

I have been a member of this site for about two weeks and the one thing that has stood out for me is the number of requests to chat I get. I will usually chat with anyone who asks, but it usuallly goes:

Me: Hi how are you.
Them: great but I'd be a lot better with your legs wrapped around me lol
Me thinking to myself: (I'd be a lot better off with my husband's fingers wrapped around your throat before he snaps your neck!!! because some guy just sent me a message asking if I'd like to suck his cock AS I'M TYPING THIS!!!)

I don't report people to moderators when this happens, or block them from contacting me. I'm also not really as angry as I may sound about it.

The general rule is, as far as I'm aware, if you wouldn't tell your husband that you're doing it, it's cheating.

No it is not and you know it.

What it IS like saying is that someone who dresses like that is likely to draw attention, be hit upon, and have some women thinking "who the hell is that skank?". That doesn't mean that anyone can have sex with her - and that is definitely not what I said. Don't put words in my mouth (or whatever the forum equivalent is).

Jesus dude you won, I changed the fucking avatar. You just can't keep your big dumb mouth shut can you? No wonder you have to jack off in front of the computer and I'm probably not the only girl who doesn't want to do that with you.

I never said you or anyone else SHOULD OR SHOULDN'T do it.

All I said was that I didn't want to do it. I think it's cheating on MY husband.

All I wanted was opinions on whether YOU thought it was cheating on YOUR spouse. I gave no opinion on what anyone eles should or shouldn't do, even you think it IS cheating. I certainly didn't care about the other bullshit you've brought up in my topic, on a forum you're not even supposed to be in.

If you insist on being in the girls forum and insulting me in my own topic at least do me the courtesy of answering my question.

DO YOU, OR DO YOU NOT, FEEL CYBERSEX IS A FORM OF CHEATING ON YOUR FUCKING SPOUSE!!!!

GODDAMMIT!!!

I was merely pointing out that your activity including the posting of provocative bikini photos on the internet and publicly tweeting things like "Damn!!! I Hate it when my husband leaves early for work & I wake up in the mood all by myself." might be seen as a little bit of a come-on.

There's very little difference between a tweet and Lush profile blog - if you give people your twitter details on your profile AS YOU DO of course people will go there.

I know what I am and I know when I smell a load of self-serving bullshit, and "lady" you are full of it.

Is that picture you are so flattered that people find attractive actually you? If it isn't, why did you choose it? If it is - what's the deal with the sexy bikini shots from someone who says "I do not enjoy people being aroused by me."?



No, instantly assuming it's ok to cyber isn't cool - from anyone, but I know that the pic I use and the things I say will make people talk to me in a certain way - and I deal with it. So should you.

You know what you're absolutely right. Lesson learned two weeks in. Avatar changed, online status set to invisible, availability set to away

you guys have fun!!

Maybe you're attracting a lot more attention than you want because of the very pretty profile pic you use, Vanessa





Do you wonder why you get this sort of attention when you tweet things like this...



Welcome to Lush, there's plenty of fun to be had but please, don't treat us like idiots.

If you don't want to be treated like an idiot, don't act like one.

Mistake #1: I was under the impresion that this forum was ask the Gals

Mistake #2: If males do wish to participate in this topic, at least do me the courtesy of addressing the topic. I sought opinions on whether cybersex was a form of cheating. I did not seek your opinion on anything I choose to Tweet. I am an adult and have the right to Tweet anything I see fit.

Mistake #3 If you are unsure as to your gender, and do not wish to address the topic of the thread, at least know what you're talking about in what you do address. Twitter is not a one-on-one, private, real-time chat application comparable to the one offered here. a Tweet is in no way analagous to cybersex, and I find your comment insulting. Check the timestamps on those Tweets pal. They were made at 3AM two days ago. If you want to beat your meat to them be my guest.

Posted 11 Feb 2013 17:37


Might I suggest you do it with your husband?

My husband is 3 feet away from me, we don't need a computer to be intimate with each other.

However if we were separated for a period of time and had to communicate with each other by phone or computer. I don't think that just because a machine is involved, I'm not being sexually intimate with my husband the same way as if we were in the same room touching each other.

If we are on the phone, or computer talking to each other while we masturbate we are doing that because we are trying to simulate having sex with each other. Why would I want to communicate with someone else while I do that unless I'm trying to simulate having sex with someone else.

If my husband is unavailable to communicate with, and I'm horny and want to masturbate, why not just do it by myself and think about the man I'm in love with, rather than talk to some stranger I don't know and have no intimate connection with. This is why I don't enjoy it, and am uncomfortable with it.

Thanks everyone for the advice. When I signed up for the site Everything was explained about, blocking, and using the away features etc.

I hope people don't think I'm angry at them or offended. I don't block others or make myself invisible because I really don't mind chatting. Some people I've chatted with have taken it in that direction I've politely explained I don't do that and some will just go away, others have kept on chatting with me normally. The vulgar ones I just close the window and don't answer.

I also appreciate everyone's views on cybersex itself. I don't think it's a bad thing, or that even married people shouldn't do it. I just don't do it. That doesn't mean I won't chat with people, I'll just politely make you aware I'm not into that
