NSFW Hoax Book Used Vook To Make iTunes Top Paid List

Remember that hoax erotica book we wrote about last week, The Diamond Club?  The ”crowd-sourced erotic stunt novel” from Brian Brushwood and Justin Young (hosts of the NSFW podcast), debuted on iTunes’ top grossing book list last week at No. 4 and is currently holding its place at No. 5. How did the authors do it?

Brushwood and Young used Vook’s latest eBook publishing platform to put out the title. The platform, which launched in March, got a new set of features last week including the ability to build a Web page for an eBook, and the ability to sell the eBook directly from that page (keeping 85 percent of the net royalties).

The update also includes a preview capability that will let readers preview an eBook using an HTML5 browser.

Fake Erotica Book Takes No. 4 Spot in iBookstore

Comedians from The NSFW Show completely crowd-sourced a fake erotica book for the iBookstore. They compiled a collection of submissions from readers as The Diamond Club by Patricia Harkins-Bradley–telling readers to “please purchase and post a hilarious 5-star review” for the 99-cent title.

The video embedded above explains everything–what do you think? The fake book currently has 1,124 five star reviews and 12 one-star reviews. As you can see by the screen shot from iTunes, as of this writing, the book is currently ranked No. 4 out of all books in the iBookstore–topped only by the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

Here is the fake book’s description: “When Brianna Young discovers that Roman Dyle, the man she built a relationship and a multi–million dollar company with, has gotten married to another woman behind her back, she embarks on a journey to realize her dreams of professional and sexual revenge for everything she had endured at the hands of Roman.Brianna seeks her romance from The Diamond Club, an exotic gathering of the Bay Area’s most attractive and interesting people, from angel investors and airline pilots to world–famous chefs and dubstep artists. Gripping and emotionally–charged, The Diamond Club is a story of revenge and discovery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
