Erotic fiction with a paranormal and/or horror slant has become a cottage industry in the past few years, and the affordability of digital publishing has rocketed many DIY authors in that field to overnight success. One of the top sellers in the so-called “monsterotica” subgenre goes by the pen-name Virginia Wade – a suburban mom from Colorado who made a fortune self-publishing a series of pornographic novels about young ladies having sexy-time with Sasquatch.

Yup, that's right: Wade's Moan for Bigfoot and its fifteen sequels (and counting) are literally monster sellers at Amazon's Kindle store; according to an interview with Business Insider, the series pulls in up to $30,000 a month from Kindle sales alone (it's also doing well at iTunes and other vendors).
 
Virginia_Wade“If there was a market there for monster sex, I was gonna give it to them,” Wade told the Insider. After a few false starts in other romance genres, she finally struck gold with her first Bigfoot title. The worldwide hunger for sequels led her to recruit family for help (her father works as her editor, and her mother translated some of the books into German). 
 
But Wade also got caught up in controversy, following an article in the UK's Kernel magazine about the extreme content in pornographic eBooks. The resulting backlash led Amazon UK and other stores to pull many of their titles – including about half of the Bigfoot novels. Wade responded by re-publishing the books under “tamer” names (Moan for Bigfoot was originally released as the not-so-subtle Cum for Bigfoot), but apparently the censored titles don't sell nearly as well. Go figure that one.
