We are weird, guys
So in my job as a freelance writer I’ve been approached by small-time publishers to write for the erotica market, since everyone thinks that there’s a ton of money to be made in Kindle singles. First of all, there isn’t a ton of money to be made - the stories have a VERY low price point and most of them are not bestsellers. Even if I could write erotica, it wouldn’t be worthwhile.
Second, and this is the weird part, almost all of the stories they want me to write involve an “alpha male” more or less forcing himself on a woman, usually in an office setting, which as of late is a whole new level of creepy and weird, especially because the employers are, themselves, women. I don’t really know what to make of it.
