Hey Romance writers,

Have any of you noticed diminishing sales for your romance titles, or is that just me being a lazy gently caress bag who doesn't produce anymore? I've taken a pretty bad hit over the last two months and this month isn't looking promising either.

It's telling me that my 5k erotica story that currently set at $0.99 should continue to be sold at $0.99 to maximize my profit potential, so that's a thing I guess.

Speaking from a romance and definitely not erotica standpoint, I've never had a whisper of a problem with covers.

That being said I'm far from a big dog so ymmv.

I have one title that always takes super-long to review.

It's a weird story. One day Amazon told me they objected to my cover. They wouldn't tell me WHY (the e-mail said it could have been any number of things setting them off, from obscenity to copyright — none of which I was violating, but they in their wisdom objected).

I changed the cover entirely and there have been no more complaints, but now, whenever I update that project, it spends an extra 12 or so hours (beyond the normal period) in review, while I sit going :ohdear: that they're going to yank it for some unknown reason without so much as asking any questions.

Probably thanks to all the issues they've had with some of my titles, almost everything I do with this pen names takes like an extra day longer than my other pen name does. It's kind of annoying, like they're combing everything over with a finetooth comb.

2-3 shorts a week?

Christ, no wonder I've been floundering. I can't keep up with the competition.

Unless you enjoy producing art for art's sake while still making a buck, mang.

Now excuse me while I get back to editing my erotic Santa story.

I love it when the book that's already been adult filtered has its changes approved within, like, ten minutes and the relatively-vanilla title I uploaded last night is still pending.
