Amazon, by far the dominant platform for self-published e-books, sells around 19, of the titles a day, according to data compiled for the publishing data site AuthorEarnings. The writer behind the site estimates that 80 percent of erotica downloads for Kindle are written by self-published authors. Sethline said her readers, including those buying the gay titles, are overwhelmingly women.
The market for self-published erotica has drawn a lot of people into the work, both those just looking for easy money and others who find the stories stimulating themselves.

But most see nowhere near the success Sethline has. Yes, that's also a pen name. Johnson said erotica readers who start writing for fun don't typically keep doing it for long. It's tough to make money if you don't look at it like a ruthless businessman. Johnson himself has been writing erotica for four years, publishing over a thousand stories under more than 50 pen names.
He puts in ten-hour days; if he really pushes himself, he can write two 4,word short stories or a 10,word novella in a day. So much volume requires variety. Johnson is a gay man, but like Sethline, he writes stories with all kinds of gender configurations.
I find it hard to write ABDL [adult baby diaper love] erotica, whether gay or straight, because it seems so silly and pointless—I can't even pretend to think diapers are sexy. But most other hetero erotica is easy as pie, even if I have to pretend I have a vagina. Still, Johnson said he does sometimes try to write about topics he actually cares about—if not in a sexual way.

He's interested in Polynesian culture, so he just published a story about a fa'afafine, a member of Samoan society's "third gender. Despite what you may have read about dinosaur erotica , Johnson says there's not actually much of a market out there for authors like Chuck Tingle moderately famous for absurdist classics like "My Ass is Haunted by the Gay Unicorn Colonel," "Slammed in the Butthole by My Concept of Linear Time," and the newly Hugo-nominated "Space Raptor Butt Invasion.
Nevertheless, the dinosaur bestiality loophole represents a real issue for anyone trying to make a living in self-publishing: the control that Amazon has over the market. The company has cornered the market partly by requiring authors to sell exclusively through it if they want to be included in Kindle Unlimited, Amazon's Netflix-style subscription service. Incidentally, Cooper is a guy writing under a female pen name, something that's extremely common since female readers seem mostly disinclined to buy writing published under a male name.
Last summer, Amazon proved just how easily it can alter the dynamics of self-publishing when it changed its payment system. In addition to getting a significant percentage of simple sales of their e-books—up to 70 percent if the book meets certain guidelines —authors who use the Kindle direct publishing system are paid a small percentage from a pool of money that the company sets aside each month for Kindle Unlimited reimbursement.
In the past, each author's share was based on the total number of times a Kindle Unlimited member downloaded one of their books for free. Under the new system launched last summer , payment is now based on the number of pages a member reads after downloading a title. She's seen big men before but nothing like this.
