“Five grown men will sacrifice anything (including their dignity) to win a male pageant”
I think is not fair watching this video after the trailer of HB2…
cause i’m DYING here! ………..All right then… Chris Pine looks great, I can’t wait to see Cinderella’s Prince singing “Agony”, preferably not wearing a wig.
I just hope those guys will shooting ‘Mantivities’ someday. :D
y’all go to this website, sign up, fill out some tax crap
write about 5000 words of porn or more - 3000 or more also acceptable, but you don’t really want to go under that. don’t tab to indent, i swear to god, it fucks with amazon’s formatting so bad. don’t write any porn that’d send you to jail IRL, amazon naturally (and thank god) doesn’t accept that shit.
on the ‘bookshelf’ tab, you click ‘add new title’, fill out everything, upload a cover - you can get one free image a month (or maybe a week now, i dunno) from bigstock.com if you need some stock images of people’s abs and stuff but can’t put cash down for anything just yet - and amazon has a cover making application built right into the process too to make things easier or if you don’t know shit about photoshop or whatever.
then you upload the document itself. click save and continue. choose how much you want your title to cost - 2.99 is generally what most people price theirs at, because that’s where amazon’s 70 percent royalties starts at. enroll in kindle select if you want that 70 percent royalties to apply to the whole world, so you’re getting the same royalties no matter where you sell.
then you hit publish and wait and wait and wait and wait for amazon to actually publish the fucking thing.
then you wait 60 days after the end of the month to get your royalties! don’t know why, but that’s how amazon rolls.
and you just keep making more and more titles in the meanwhile to build up that income cuz you’re not likely to make a lot from just one title.
there’s no real ‘gatekeepers’ in kindle erotica - you just start writing and publishing and you keep doing it and building up a library. some genres/kinks/niches sell better than others, and trends come and go, but it’s really all up to you - to do the writing, the publishing, the marketing, and then more writing and publishing. you just keep at it, bit by bit. this is a market where it’s really all about quantity… the bigger your library is, the more sales you’ll start to rack up, building like a snowball. even better if you release titles on like a regular schedule. ideally you want to put up like 2 titles a week, but 1 a week is a good initial goal to shoot for.
you can also go to amazon’s author central to set up an author page to get all your titles in one place and help build a reader base/link readers and buyers in general to.
adding in my own hmmmmms
… I am seriously considering this. And also considering getting a proper pen name
Spock was the only person who demonstrated true, unselfish love in Requiem for Methuselah. No one else understood the meaning of the emotion.
First, let’s be realistic. Jim did not fall in love with Rayna in two hours; he fell in lust. Go ahead and blame the brandy.
Flint did not love Rayna; he wanted to control her and own her, to satisfy his loneliness. He made copy after copy of her, trying to create something perfect that could love him.
Rayna did not love either of them, because she was an android. (Spock says she died from love; I say she died from circuit overload listening to two men fight over her without saying, “Hey, what do you want?”)
Bones felt sorry for Jim, and he genuinely hurt to see his friend upset, so there is brotherly love there, but he couldn’t do anything to help.
It is Spock who acts without anyone’s knowledge, with no benefit to himself, and gives Jim the gift of peace by blocking his memories of Rayna, because he loves Jim that much. It was tender and sweet, and something we never witness him offer another crew member.
And that’s why this episode made me weep.
