IAmA self-published erotica author with over 80 titles to my name. I've been doing this for 1.5 years. I just released a how-to guide for beginners. AMA!
Edit: Thanks for the wonderful AMA, everyone! Both I and my designer greatly enjoyed it. I will probably come back a while later and finish answering any questions that may pop up, but for now I'm going to go write some hot smut and then eat some lunch.
I'm Dalia Daudelin, author of many titles sold on all of the major ebook stores. I've also self published physical copies on Amazon via Createspace. I have only ever been self published, so I won't be able to answer any questions about traditional publishing past my opinions.
I'm hoping to answer any questions you all might have about self publishing or erotica / romance (but of course I'll answer all other questions). I don't claim to have all the answers, but I have been at this a long time. I invite other erotica authors to offer their input if they happen to pop in. In my time in various self publishing communities, I've really come to value the hard work and all the help you can get when you surround yourself with other authors.
You can find my book, How to Really Self-Publish Erotica: The Truth About Kinks, Covers, Advertising and More!, on the following sites:
But of course I'm more than willing to give you the answers to your questions for free. Should you still have questions after this AMA is finished you can also email me at [email protected]
My designer will also be answering questions on any questions related to his work.
Thank you for your interest!
