Overview

Clark Wilson, an average family man, is thrust into the world of porn when he accepts a position to market and sell adult cable channels using wild promotions and adult productions.

Clark’s experiences in the world of porn and the broadcast industry bring a mixture of embarrassment, excitement, temptation, complex circumstances, bizarre bosses, crazy colleagues, sexy stars and profound revelations.

Clark’s wife, Melissa, faces her own challenges and ambivalences regarding the job. Her salary as a teacher does not support the family and she knows that they need the extra income. She quiets her doubts and concerns about glamorous adult stars with “perfect” bodies to support Clark.

As Clark creates sexy, cutting-edgy advertising campaigns and produces an adult parody of “The Blair Witch Project,” Kitty Newlove, a top adult star, seeks to seduce him. Meanwhile, Melissa feels competition from the porn stars, realizes friends are shunning her because of his job, and wonders if their marriage will survive.

In spite of Clark’s successes, he doesn’t fit in and soon finds himself fighting for survival in this tough, peculiar environment. His co-workers include a psychotic programming president, a Machiavellian CFO, an ambitious but clueless CEO, a constantly-disappearing creative director, grandstanding vice-presidents, porn stars with abundant re-constructive surgery, and others in and out of the industry.

Pushing Porn is a mainstream novel that reads like an episode of the “Office” or a “Dilbert” comic strip placed in the world of Adult Entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

Kim K
"Although this was not a type of book I would normally read, I have to say it was enjoyable. I found myself wanting to keep picking it up and find out what happened next. It was a very humerous book that had me envisioning it making an enjoyable movie."
Mach 3 G
"Best book I've read this year. Very, very funny and insightful! The author takes you on a wild ride that exposes the inner workings of this hugely profitable business while introducing many colorful and outrageous characters. I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised."
Susan C
"I thought this novel might be a good page-turner but it turned out to
be much more than that. It is funny, engaging and has a lot to say about
the world of business and human nature."

Meet the Author

When Mark was seven, he won first place in a state-wide creative writing contest for all second graders. He won a ton of candy and was inspired to make writing his career.

Then, some years later, Mark went into advertising and won awards for the marketing promotions he created and the copy he wrote. He also wrote and hosted a 30-minute television show featuring people over fifty achieving their dreams called, The Best is Yet to Come.

Mark was successful, but not fulfilled. His dream was to write more than advertising copy, his dream was to write novels.

“Pushing Porn” is Mark's first novel and based on his experiences as a Vice President of Marketing in the adult entertainment industry for one year.

Mark lives in a rural community southeast of Denver with his wife, son, horses and dogs, and is currently working on his next novel.
