Anonymous poll behind the cut.
(Edit: unfortunately I can't edit polls, but the second question is only meant to be answered if you answered "yes" to one of the relevant questions in the first.)
Here's why I was wondering:
I was fascinated to learn, in discussions elsewhere, that electronically published erotica on Amazon will sell, quite well, at a price of $2.99 for stories of 10-20 print pages in length. With all the hand-wringing about ebook prices, here is a genre that has settled on a price for short fiction that is not at all proportionate to the price for novels, and to which my gut reaction was "that's really expensive!", and there is a reasonably significant paying market for it, one that can allow (I understand through personal anecdote) part-time writers to earn, well, better money than midlist SFF writers, I'm pretty sure.
I know you all aren't a representative sample, and I also know that I'm very sleep-deprived and my poll design is probably terrible, but I was curious anyway.
The poll is anonymous, and anonymous commenting is on, but no shaming or criticizing anyone, please.
