I am Hazel Redgate, AKA Portarossa, and I've been a professional smutwriter for eight years. AMA!
Who am I? My name is Hazel, and eight years ago I threw in the towel as a perfectly respectable copywriter-cum-editor and decided to give professional erotica writing a turn. (No spoilers, but so far it seems to be working pretty well.) My inbox gets a steady stream of messages about the ins and outs -- so to speak -- of the pornwriting industry, or about life as a professional writer in general, so every year I try and do an AMA to help answer questions from people who are looking for a little advice about how to make it a career or how to make their own writing pop. (Or, you know, just anything. I'm so very lonely.)
I've got a few romance novels free to download for the rest of the year (Reckless, Smooth and the collection Love at Christmas, if you're in the mood for something a tad more festive), but whether you give them a try or not, I'm pretty much an open book. AMA!
