It is possible to get rich off of eBooks

Vampire Troll Paranormal Romance? Yikes!
Well at least there’s money in the 13 year old girl demographic….

Austin e-book author signs $2M book deal
Amanda Hocking has sold more than a million copies of her vampire-troll paranormal romances via e-books and print-on-demand.

Austin, MN is about 60 miles from where I live.

Now I just need a small piece of that pie... Very Happy

Yup!! If you aim a product at 13 year olds you'll make a fortune! They're the only ones with a disposable income these days!! LOL (and the quality doesnt have to be high either, just take a listen to your average 13 year olds MP3 collection!!) Smile

Aha, so I just have to lower the quality, and add bare-chested werewolves?
Easy!

Yeah, I don't get it. I thought the whole Vampire thing would have blown over years ago....

The market for romance is HUGE right now. It kind of makes sense. Lots of young girls and
housewives with enough time to read. The rest of us are too damn busy.

I barely have time to read a beer label.... affraid

What the heck. At least I have 100% control over what I publish. AND I can use Steve's art.
That's all I need.

Already sold about 20 books I think. It will pick up once people start tweeting about it.
