I should have accepted the offer from Miami.

Janey

Six years ago, I was offered the opportunity to have a writing contract by a publisher in Miami; I turned the offer down, after weeks of second-guessing my decision I was still questioning what I did because at the time I was concerned that writing porn stories would damage my rep as a writer.

Now, at the end of my time, I think I should have accepted the offer even if the idea of writing for a publisher with few limits turned my stomach at the time. In the end, they were the only publishers who offered me a genuine chance to get published, what does that say about my writing?

  1. Every decision we made has a reason behind. Maybe now you feel you could be ready for writing porn. But you have to trust your instincts, and it might have been difficult for you feeling in the right place if you would have accepted that job..

  2. I never felt happy with their remit which was as long as it is legal to write it; where do you draw the line?
    I have written erotic romances with a little sexuality in the story, but the sex part was part of the story not the center of the story.
