IamAn author of erotica with over 200 titles in several languages, self-published for a year now. AMA!
My short bio: Hi there, I'm Kathrin (link is NSFW, like possibly much of this AMA). I'm an erotic author with about 200 published titles under my belt now, most of them in English and/or German, but some have been translated into several other languages as well.
My stories are mainly all lesbian erotica, sometimes a few queer or bisexual interludes here and there, and a strong preference for domination/submission. I'm self-published, so I'm doing everything myself, from typing, to cover design, to publishing, marketing and translating (partly). My partner El works as my editrix and voicing audiobooks for me (for English and Spanish texts only, since she's American and I'm German, and so she's still struggling with the German language).
I've done a similar AMA on the German subreddit a few months ago, and for my one-year anniversary, I thought I'd do the same for English speakers. So. Ask me anything about erotica, self-publishing, writing, translating, whatever you like. I can answer in German and English, and if you have questions about my partner's work, I'll gladly involve her as well.
We'll do this AMA the entire weekend (August 13 to 14) but I'll answer questions afterwards as well, if there are any.
Edit Aug 14, 08:00 CET: I'll be off for now, but I'll be back around 18:00 CET to answer any questions that have come up in the meantime. Be excellent to each other.
Edit edit Aug 14, 18:00 CET: Back.
Edit edit edit Aug 15, 07:00 CET: Alright, I'm setting an end to the official part. Thanks for all the interest, and the many many questions. I've tried to answer every one of them, but if I have missed one, please forgive me. If anyone still has questions, I'm continually open to answer them, either on this AMA or through a PM. I might not be on Reddit every day, though, but I check in semi-regularly. So if I don't get back to you right away, it's because of that.
In the end, this was fun! Thanks a lot, and be excellent to each other.
