dani_phantasma, if that's all you need to make, I'd strongly recommend publishing something on Amazon. You can learn a lot, and if your expectation are low, you might be pleasantly surprised. :-)

I'd recommend lurking here for a little bit to learn:,60.0.html, and not investing a lot of money in publishing or covers at first. It can be done on a shoestring, and if you have one or two original stories you can publish, you'll get a pretty good sense of whether you enjoy it or not, and if you might be able to earn a little extra cash.

There are some people who practically become overnight millionaires publishing, but for most of us it's slower, more work, and sometimes frustrating...but if you keep your expectations in check, it can be a bit of extra cash and a lot of fun, too.

Anyway, it's easier than trying to convince people to donate to you through Patreon/etc. (In my opinion, at least.) Best of luck! :)

Oh thank you! That would be great. I'll check those out asap!

I don't expect to make much at all really. I tried starting up ma Patreon but to be honest I'm crap at trying to promote myself too much because I always fear I'm going over the line into annoying or being dishonest. I figure if I had one I'd pressure myself so hard that'd I'd crash and fall apart because I tend to get so guilty about accepting people's money.

I've been told by rp partners I write some pretty nice smut so I figure I can make a little writing lesbian erotica. I've gotten a little better at art so I could always make a simple cover myself.

Thanks again!

Awesome! I don't know what the erotica market is currently like, but I know there's an audience for lesbian fiction. It's not a HUGE market so it mostly hasn't been overrun by spammy stuff (a good thing, IMO). I've only written a little bit of lesbian romance myself, but I found it a pleasant experience, and I felt like there was definitely an audience for it. If I hadn't been so busy in the last year, I'd have tried to write more of it.

This is the current (Amazon) bestseller list, but I don't know enough about the trends to tell you anything more specific than "yes, there's an audience for lesbian fiction."
