Eros and Ethos: 60 Days Out

by Jason Stotts

I am very pleased to announce that in the first 60 days, Eros and Ethos has sold 111 copies! This is an excellent start and I am very thankful to everyone who has bought a copy of the book so far.

(Note that some book sales have been through my website and aren’t reflected above.)

As you can see, the vast majority of the sales have been eBooks and from the US.

During the first 60 days, I’ve also been a guest on the “Objectivist Discussions” on YouTube:

I also have several more podcast interviews lined up, so stay tuned for that.

While there has not been a formal review published anywhere, there is one in the works and I’m hoping that a second might be underway as well. On the informal side, the reviews on Amazon have been really great. So far, there are 11 reviews and its rating is 4.9/5!

To celebrate all this good news, Eros and Ethos is on sale this weekend.

What can you do to help?

  • Leave a positive review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Even a couple of sentences can make a big difference to someone who isn’t familiar with the book and is on the fence about buying it.
  • Tell your friends. Word of mouth is one of the best ways that a book sells.

I hope that sales will continue to increase and my next update will contain even more good news. I also hope to announce that the audiobook version of Eros and Ethos will be out soon.

Newsletter Upgrade

by Jason Stotts

I am currently in the process of transitioning my email list from a self-hosted solution to MailChimp. I’m hoping that this will make the newsletter a little more functional and nicer looking. As an added bonus, new sign-ups for the newsletter will get a free copy of the Introduction from Eros and Ethos. If you previously signed up for the email newsletter and would like the Introduction, please email me and I’ll send it out to you.

If you have any questions about the book you’d like us to cover, feel free to email me with them and we’ll try to get to them.

Eros and Ethos – One Month Update

by Jason Stotts

It’s been exactly one (short) month since Eros and Ethos was released and it seems like a good time to talk about how things are going. In short, they’re going well.

As you can see in the graph (click to make it bigger), the ebook (orange) launched first and sold well. The paperback (grey) launched after and has been holding steady. Amazon reports paperback sales on the day they ship, so there’s a lag for the books to print and ship reflected in the data. Interestingly, the majority of sales (63%) are ebook and 37% are paperback. In total, there have been 62 total sales in only 28 days, which is a solid start.

Reviews are all very good so far. The book is currently at 4.8/5 stars with 7 reviews. Reviews at this stage are critical for helping to pick up new readers that may not be familiar with my work, so if you’ve already read it, please leave me a review. Even just a couple of sentences is enough and it makes a big difference.

All signed and numbered copies have been shipped. If you have not received yours, please contact me.

Numbered copies are half sold and I’m currently sold out of signed copies (with more coming soon!).

All in all, I’m pretty happy with the launch and I look forward to increasing sales as word of the book spreads.

If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, now’s the time!

Update!

I forgot to add, in the original post, that there will be an audiobook coming out (hopefully) by the end of the month. It is in production right now and everything seems to be on track.

Eros & Ethos: Paperback Launch

by Jason Stotts

Many people have been asking me about the paperback and I am delighted to announce that the paperback version of Eros & Ethos: A New Theory of Sexual Ethics is now available on Amazon!

This book is the product of a decade of work on my part and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. Seriously, it’s really good. Of course, you shouldn’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself.

Anyone who has ordered a special edition directly from me will be getting theirs soon. I have ordered quite a few copies and they have to ship to me first, then I’ll need to sign them and get them shipped out. I’ll update those people who have ordered special editions directly via email when their package ships.

Two things to note:

  1. Amazon tells me that the book may take up to 48hrs to appear in the different marketplaces (e.g. Amazon.de).
  2. Amazon also informs me that it may take up to 72hrs for the paperback version and the ebook version to appear on the same sales page. This is important if you with to buy both as once they’re on the same sales page, you’ll have the option to buy the paperback and only pay $2.99 for the ebook.
