How I Got Dirty Books To Be New York Times Bestsellers

I try not to brag when I single-handedly positively affect people’s lives.

But I’m giving myself a pass to brag this time because it’s blatantly clear that I am changing the lives of others.

On April 25th, short 8 weeks ago, I published the first of several book recommendation posts in what I call Kindle of Ill Repute.

• Smut Book Recommendations
• More Smut Book Recommendations
• Vampire Smut Book Recommendations

In the wake of the initial surge of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy’s popularity, my smutty friends and I needed to find books similar in smutty nature. At first, I depended on the bestseller lists on Amazon.com, and then I took recommendations from other smutty horndog ladies.

On the initial list of 8 romance/erotica/smut books I recommended (not including the Fifty Shades books), several of the books were ones I highly recommended. Judging from my Amazon.com affiliate penny-making machine, many of you guys took my advice and bought the books I suggested.

But what more clearly points to my influence on the smut book-buying audience is this:

It’s not a coincidence that FOUR of those initial 8 books I recommended (and rated on my own very shallow scale) are now New York Times Bestsellers.

On the Island
On the Island
Overall: 3/5
The Marriage Bargain (Marriage to a Billionaire)
The Marriage Bargain
Overall: 4/5
Beautiful Disaster
Beautiful Disaster
Overall: 4/5
Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel
Bared to You
Overall: 5/5

Yup.

Methinks I’m starting the new Oprah Book Club.

Thanks to Brittany (and the fact that I read this in record time), the next book to enter the Bestsellers list?

Backstage Pass: Sinners on Tour (The Sinners on Tour)
Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning
Overall: 5/5

You’re welcome, society.

Paranormal just isn’t my thing. I’ve tried, but anything past fake vampires gets too complicated for my simple mind.

Backstage. Heh heh.

Indeed, your love of the girl porn has shaped our fine nation. On a map the good ole USA now resembles heaving bosoms.

Keep up the good work. I am always interested in smut rec’s, and it’s not like I’m going to ask my mom for ideas (though I bet I could) (which is exactly why I don’t).

It was about time erotica made it on the NYT bestseller list :-)

Personally, I swear by the Merry Gentry Series!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be
running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the issue
solved soon. Thanks
