Honestly, and maybe this is just me, but giving up on a viable niche you don't enjoy is a great lesson to learn in the first 30 days. Much better to learn that now rather than later, when you've got more time, effort, and audience invested in your catalogue and no willpower left to expand on it. Starting over from scratch can be hard, but it's even harder when you've developed a following you just can't bring yourself to write for anymore because you never enjoyed it in the first place.
Great start, thanks for the dataporn.
Can I ask what the general word count on your PNR reverse harems were, by the way?
Sure. They weren't long at all. Both barely crossed 50k each.
My thought process was: they're still novels, and I could crank them out quickly.
My next attempt \*should\* be a bit longer. I'm thinking 60-70k, closer to reader expectations of the genre since I know romance runs 70-90k easily. Whether I can stick to a rapid release schedule remains to be seen, but I'll try!
Congratulations, the first step is always the hardest one and you did it. I don’t know what were your expectations but to me, it seems a good start
Thanks. I appreciate it :)
I'm kinda hoping that as the months go on, if I keep making updates in this group, it'll help keep me honest and accountable. One thing I definitely need to learn for future posts is how to attach a link to image files so I can really put my money where my mouth is!
Thanks for this.
1. How long are the things you've written?
2. If the erotic short is $3.99 that is probably too high, unless it is a long short?
Both books were 50k each. The short was roughly 7k, and priced at 2.99 (I should've included that, my bad!). I explain why the books run short in an above post. Hope that helps!
Removed. If you need to write, then write.
