I wrote erotica 'books' something like 8 years ago, i remember it was at about the time when this kindle thing started. Sold them for 99cents each (meaning i only got 30cents for each sale, the idea was that 10x more people buy a 99cent book than a 3 euro book). It was 2x 2 stories, the whole thing took me like a whole month or something, i was pretty slow. I wrote the fetish i had myself (big dicks in tiny women), basically i tried to turn myself on the most with my stories. In 2 years i made about 2000 euros from the 2 books. I stopped writing cause i didn't like the activity, i have another self-employed activity i enjoy doing more. I made most in the first year, then i got a bad review for one book, and my other book was banned after something like 10 months because the cover was too pornographic. After the first year my earnings soon went to under 1 euro per month.
2 weeks ago i republished the 4 stories in 1 book, for 2,99euros. Wonder if i make any money. I don't count on it. I think when kindle and ebooks were new it was a nice hack, but i think like 2 years later it already got saturated a lot.
I guess your strategy of taking small niches is nice. (but doesn't sound like too much fun to write but well)
This is also going to be my last story. I'm going to drop this project. The time I put in isn't worth the payout.
I've taken a couple weeks off from publishing, and now my sales are almost down to $170 for the month.
It feels good to have a trickle of 'passive' income. But for the dozens and dozens and dozens of hours I put into writing, publishing and designing the ebooks, $170 dollars a month is just not worth it.
You can make a lot of money by writing erotica on Kindle. But the way to do it is to focus on one pen name and publish 15 or 20 ebooks under that one name. I published in several erotica niches and had 6 or 7 pen names because I was figuring out which niches were most profitable.
I know I could ramp my publishing up again now that I have a lot of knowledge of the market, but I don't want to write erotica anymore. Maybe in the future I'll be motivated to write it again, but I'm done for now.
I'm going to focus on building my Amazon FBA book flipping business.
I'm also going to make a reseller youtube channel and develop my blog more to make money digitally.

How does that work?

I don't want to discourage you, but blogging is one of the worst business models to make money online these days unless you really find a niche that has very low competition on search engines. I feel like this would be another thing you might spend a lot of time on for very little return.
I used to have a habit of writing a lot of erotica on open forums and erotica sites a while back. While it seems like the market is over-saturated, a 100 extra dollars a month is not bad at all in my situation. I have to say that this thread really did inspire me as I am trying to come up with as many side hustle ideas as possible.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
