The erotic side of #LitRPG: Cue that 70s porn music

It was bound to happen.  As #LitRPG has taken off, more writers (looking to capitalize on the trend) are getting their hooks into this new(ish) genre.  Personally, I don’t see a problem with it.  I think writers should be able to write what they want.   Let the market decide.  If readers buy it, the sexy side will stay-if they don’t; the writers will eventually move onto something else.

A  glance at /r/eroticauthors on Reddit will quickly tell you the market is already saturated with erotica authors.  Most are looking for the newest and most profitable kink.  And, the pressure to write and produce content is tremendous.  I guess it was only a matter of time before they found LitRPG.

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. 

Some erotica authors are just looking for a quick buck.  And,  their catalog suffers for it.  Others have been around since before KU 1.0.  Either way, it comes down to one telling face: is the book good? Does it fit the genre?  Or, is it just written for a quick buck?

Hint: looking at the sales of this author and glancing at a few others, there does seem to be a market for LitRPG sexy time.  Hell, I even read it.  And, yes, some writers deliver some good prose.

In any event, it gives a different meaning to leveling up!   You be the judge.  Peace out.
