I have taken several writing courses and am nearly finished writing a romantic novel. I thought it would be perfect for Mills and Boon but on reading a few of their books recently I was quite shocked to discover how much quite graphic sex is in them, so that they are almost like the Fifty Shades books. Although there is a lot of love in my book (its actually about a love triangle) there is no graphic sex, only implied. My family all know I am writing it and are eager to read it once it is finished.
If I write a few sexy scenes I am afraid my children and grandchildren will think I am a dirty-minded old lady.
I could easily write the scenes as I have read all the Fifty Shades and 4 M and B books. By the way M and B are nt currently accepting any new submissions. I may well self publish of Amazon.
What would others do in my situation?
Dreading being alone again - feeling bereft
He tells me to stop trying to control him - AIBU to worry?
Getting older - accommodation options? - would love advice
