Marketing Woes

As a mathmatician I understand marketing. Susie Bright dominates Audible's erotica section. So a wise person would ask is her stuff that much fun, or is this clever marketing. I think erotica should be fun like sex not depressing like church. I think this is a collection of favorites. For perspective, I don't have any issues with sex between any people of consenting age. So I really would not want to know the group that this is a favorite for. I suppose I was hoping this would be something I could play on a second or third date while driving. (Not Penthouse erotica, but Sex and the City erotica). To its credit some meet this standard, but some embarrassingly miss the mark. And when I say embarrassaing I mean embarrassing to listen to by yourself. Any way when it comes to intellectual property I was that internet guru that said respect it, despite the fact that I made money because people stole so much intellectual property over the internet. This book really makes me understand the need for refunds when you are sold intellectual property that is just soooo bad. As a balanced viewpoint Everything I have gotten from Audible otherwise has been a bargain at twice the price.
