As a writer of smut, I made one New Year’s promise to myself, focus on one thing at a time and finish it! Well, it’s not even January and I’ve already kicked that one where it hurts.
Amazon has a search algorithm that includes the age of your story in their ranking. What you will find is that after about 30-days your stories Sales Rank will start sliding towards the abyss. This means that fewer and fewer people will be offered your stories when they search for something to read.
We’ve all seen the movie scene where one person is hanging onto someone else as they dangle from a tall building or mountain. Sort of like in the first Die Hard where the bad guy slips out of McClain’s hand and falls from the Nakatomi Plaza building in LA.
You story is like the bad guy and no matter how hard you hang on, you just can’t keep from slipping away. As you watch him fall away, you can see your sales go down the same slippery slope as time from your last publication increases.
It’s been several months since my last story was published and my sales reflect it. I’m down roughly 50% from several months ago at Amazon. Luckily, SmashWords doesn’t seem to care how old your story is and ranks you based upon sales and good reviews.
Despite knowing that, I’m still having a problem focusing on House Party 2 and have started a new cuckold – Hotwife story, tentatively named “The Cuckold Club – “Initiation.”
House Party 2 which I honestly think is going to be one of my best stories is currently over 60,000 words and about 75% complete. My new cuckold story is now over 20,000 words and I’m trying to force myself to focus on HP2, which I really need to finish.
Foxy and I have a big annual New Year’s Eve Pajama Party which will consume the next week and so hopefully after the first of the year, I can get back in the groove.
Have a great New Year’s yourself and don’t drink and drive, call Uber or a friend for a Lyft. If you get drunk and kill yourself or someone else, then who’s going to buy my top rated HEA erotica, if you’re dead or in jail? You don’t want to be Bubba’s love interest. Just think of all the fun times you had Jacking or Jilling Off and you won’t be able to do that again either!
