DONT HIT ON PPL WHO ARE BEING PAID TO BE NICE TO YOU
Why does this even need to be stated
im not sure if this was a serious question but i literally made the post moments after my friend was telling me how uncomfortable two men were making her by attempting to flirt with her while she was working
another friend of mine works at a convenience store and is harassed on a regular basis
it absolutely needs to be stated, and stated loudly, and stated again
Logging onto Tumblr
Why did white people create the notion of race?
i say this every time someone fucks up but you truly cannot have white faves
#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.

what THE FUCK
it’s all about getting sheer quantity out there - let me tell you, i do like zero marketing, and i’m still raking in 300+ dollars a month now, big thanks to kindle unlimited and the increased amount of borrows it gives. if you want, you can set up a whole wordpress blog or tumblr blog or both for your penname, and organize everything there, build a fanbase. hell, i should probably do the same thing. but again… i’m making money anyway.
"marketing" aside from that comes down to choosing the right tags, title, and making a good cover. one trick is that when amazon says "only type in the title", they don’t actually care when it comes to erotica. you can title your porn "WOLFY BUSINESS (GAY WEREWOLF OFFICE KNOTTING EROTICA)" if you damn well feel like it. not sure how much of a boost it gives - some authors completely forgo ‘tagging in the title’.
the other thing is choosing the right keywords - some keywords will put you in a category, and that will help a lot. here’s amazon’s keyword-category list
other than that, just thinking of what will trip certain searches will help a lot. i tagged an erotica that was obviously a rip on guardians of the galaxy as, literally, ‘guardians of the galaxy’ in one of my keyword choices. amazon let it through fine. if you’re writing anthro/shifter erotica and there’s a knot involved? you’ll definitely want to toss ‘knotting’ into the keyword search. and such and such.
ultimately, though, again, it comes down to quantity. a single title isn’t going to make you much… what you want to do is keep pumping titles out there. try to get at least 1 title a week.
10k+ words can’t hurt, but it might not help, either. kind of a gamble, you know? longform erotica that sells well is NOVEL length.
collections are a huge boost. not everyone may wanna plunk down 3 bucks for 5-10k words, but once you start putting several stories in a bundle, charging 3-5 dollars? you’re gonna make some cash there… the Kindle Unlimited system that allows people to do a TON of borrows instead of purchasing is a huge boon to the erotica biz, and is what’s responsible for me breaking 400 dollars for the first time last month.
but again… it really comes down to quantity. if you can keep putting the erotica out there, you’ll be on the fast track to being able to make a living off it. god knows that’s what i’m shooting for, bit by bit.
the 30% sounds like a terrible deal when you can very well build yourself up on your own on amazon kindle. that’s kind of the whole appeal! outside of amazon taking their own cut, it’s all yours, and all up to you. two of the BEST selling amazon erotica authors - the two women who got all that dinosaur themed porn on all the news outlets - did it for themselves after basically quitting part time jobs.
it’s all yours for the taking anon!
