I am Hazel Redgate, AKA Portarossa, and I've been a professional smutwriter for seven years. AMA!
Who am I? My name is Hazel Redgate, and seven(ish) years ago I decided that being a copywriter wasn't for me and decided to turn to writing fiction for a living instead. My job has been writing sweet romances and hot-and-heavy fucktales (woohoo) ever since, and it's comfortably one of the best decisions I ever made. I've put three of my books (under this pen name) up for free for the next few days, so if you're looking for something to warm up your winter -- or your mother, grandmother, cool aunt or uncle-who-isn't-afraid-to-admit-that-men-can-read-romance-too wants you to load something onto that new Kindlemabob they just bought for Christmas -- you might want to check them out:
Reckless is a novel about a Texas diner owner whose ex-boyfriend rolls back into town after a decade away -- now a famous musician, and eager to rekindle their romance.
Smooth is a novel about an uptight Chicago lawyer who, newly single after a break up with her fiancé, finds herself in New Orleans for her best friend's wedding -- only to find herself repeatedly crossing paths with a freewheeling jazz musician.
Love at Christmas is a collection of novellas about four single sisters who find a little Christmas romance waiting for them under the tree. (Not with each other, you perverts. With other people.) It's a soft little slice of festive romance.
If something a little raunchier is more your style, you can find some of my filthier shorts over on my website.
I get messages every now and then asking for an AMA about self-publishing, writing (in general) and writing smut (in particular), so if you've got an questions about how to make your writing a little more polished and your readers a little more flustered -- or anything else after this absolute pisser of a year -- fire away!
