Pygmalion: Is the title scaring people off?

By | January 27, 2014

I mentioned my frustration over my sales in a discussion board and one of the posters responded with this:

The average person skimming the erotica title list will see “The Pygmalion Hypnotist” and either continue on because they have no clue what it means (“is that some kind of pygmy who hypnotizes people?”) or continue on because they vaguely remember that “Pygmalion” was one of those books they were assigned to read in high school that they never read.

In short, the title scares them off.

I wonder if it’s true.
