Kinky Literature for all your Smut!

As an author of erotic stories, we often struggle to find places to market our dirty stories, and I wanted to give a shout out to KinkyLiterature.com.

Kinky Literature is a sort of advertising house that focuses on erotic literature for all types of electronic readers, such as phones, tablets, iPads, PC’s, and Mac’s. They offer all the best erotica from your favorite authors, such as moi.

Richie and Randi operate the business and provide a free service for both readers and authors of erotica, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. In the old days, we would buy our smut from under the counter and take it home in a brown paper bag to avoid our shame from purchasing perverted materials.

It’s not quite that bad today as we can now buy with anonymity over the Internet, but publishers such as Amazon tend to treat us with rubber gloves on. Amazon is bad about throwing your story into the dungeon if they feel that it is too nasty, so sometimes finding what you’re looking for is a crapshoot.

Amazon and SmashWords are probably the two biggest suppliers of erotic literature today. The basic issue with Amazon is that they will sometimes decide that an author’s erotic story pushes their limits and puts the story in the dungeon. The Amazon “dungeon” as it is colloquially called means that they remove your story from their search engine and unless you have a link to the story, it is invisible.

From an author’s standpoint this means that when a reader searches for an erotic story to read, they will not discover yours if its in the dungeon. Likewise, the author can’t sell anything if no one can find it.

If you enjoy erotica, you’ve probably figured out that SmashWords is much more tolerant of edgier topics that many of us enjoy reading. Kinky Literature helps to solve this problem by providing searchable descriptions of all types of porn.

If you search for a topic that Amazon frowns on, then it will show up at SmashWords. For the reader, it ensures that you can find the porn you’d like to read without a problem. The story will have links to Amazon, SmashWords, or both to make life easy for you.

Kinky Literature works on referral fees that they collect from Amazon or SmashWords when they send the purchase to whichever the reader selects, and there is NO additional cost to the reader for using Kinky Literature. Authors are charged an advertising fee, which is nominal in my mind and that’s the only cost involved for the writer. None for the reader.

For myself, I like being able to deal with folks who do not treat me like a redheaded stepchild. If you write erotic stories, I encourage you to set up an account with Richie and Randi at Kinky Literature to help with your marketing.
