I'm officially an Erotic Woman!

I won't lay claim to being THE Erotic Woman, but she (lovely creature) has posted my first story, "What to Wear." It's very exciting to appear in such wonderful company amid writers like Sommer Marsden, Emerald, Heida Champa, Donna George Storey, and Gwen Masters (that's just the first 5 pages of stories--if they have an author index, I haven't found it.) Whee!

Yay for Helia!!!!!!!

Thank you for this sizzzzzzzling insight into the world of journalism!

Go! Go! Go!

More! More! More!

Helia - that is absolutely fabulous! What an absolutely steamy, spectacular story! Congratulations!

I agree with ER - we want more!

I read it a second time. My favorite phrase: "like a grape on custard."

You really built up the tension beautifully. And, if I dare say it, you've perfectly captured (some) women's wildest fantasy -- being seduced by a man who is so adept that he makes the woman feel she is the one with all the control.

This could well have been entitled: "The Erotic Woman," too, as you've detailed so attentively the various levels of a woman's arousal.

Brava, once more!

Go Helia! I read this the other day/night? probably right after they'd put it up. Some interview. Hehehe
Wonderful.

What is that blur? Oh, that's Jeremy running in circles with a bunch of o's.

Congrats. I know I'll be reading it again.

You are definitely an Erotic Woman, Helia. I just loved your story, and yes, that's my fantasy, too--a smart, sexy environmental activist (he's probably a vegan, too, righ?). Wonderfully seductive and immensely satisfying. I can't wait to read more of your work!

This story is an exceptional seduction.

The tale, the writing, the imagery, everything.

You do know how to start with a bang, Helia!
