I am less than contrite

"Producing or using pornography is a mortal sin that needs to be confessed in order for the person to receive God's forgiveness."

Spangaloo Publishing

If you choose to publish with Spangaloo you pay for the editing, but the cover art is free.  Dare I say, however, that you get what you pay for?

Signs of Desperation from the Cave

I see Ellora's Cave is "now accepting new genres!" Specifically: comedy, new adult, nonfiction, thriller/horror (this is the same thing now?) and sci fi/ alternate reality.

Why are they suddenly an all genre publisher now? Maybe because the number and quality of romance and erotica authors willing to submit work to them has finally dropped too low to maintain a profitable output in their "trademark" genre?

After Dark App

I was thinking about Wattpad's erotic-romance focused reading app, After Dark, today.

It does make me wonder.  At what point does a vibrant cross-platform writing community become an e-publisher whose authors don't get paid?

I get the feeling I could probably post a new erotic romance market every day, or at least every second day. As of yesterday you can add a new imprint from Tule Publishing to the list.

Their marketing and semantic so far look very same-y (a.k.a. "I want to make money from chick porn"). But seeking to start with a stable of just five authors is a break from the usual high volume model.
