Reaching Out from a Mind as Dirty as All Outdoors
If you get lucky enough, I might post adult-only material from time to time, so be 18 or over, or please be elsewhere.
I'll be discussing erotica here, the writing of it and the people who write it, as well as what we've written. I find all these aspects stimulating, but if any of them bore you, feel free to skim. You never know what you might miss, though.

Wild Girls Blog and Book Giveaway Final Day-Monica E. Moreno
On our last day we have a review of the first story in the book, which seems appropriate. I asked my writer friend Kathleen Bradean to review this piece, because I knew she would love it, and I was right. When she e-mailed me her review, her fist words were, “What a lovely story! She's a good writer.”
I knew that. And I know, but won’t name names, of many lovely stories in various genres that Monica E. Moreno has published under a different pseudonym.
Onward to Kathleen’s review.
"Good erotica awakens your libido. Great erotica is rich in sensual imagery that makes your body hum with anticipation. As I read Monica E. Moreno's wonderful 'Polvo de Hadas', I swore I felt the spices in my blood. This lovely and evocative story has unexpected depth that calls for reflection on how we communicate with our lovers.
The narrator's bisabeula cautions her not to make noise during sex. Otherwise the boy might think she likes it too much. But she doesn't just keep her mouth shut during sex with her boi; she doesn't say what she probably should to her lover. Instead, she turns to the food magic she learned from her bisabuela. Cinnamon for commitment, cayenne for passion. Cinnamon is easy to sprinkle here and there, but her lover refuses to taste cayenne. When they both step out of their comfort zones, their love spices up."
Award winning author Kathleen Bradean’s stories can be found in Carnal Machines, The Harder She Comes, Best of Best Women’s Erotica I and II, Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades, The Sweetest Kiss: Vampire Tales, and many other anthologies. Find her blog articles at KathleenBradean.Blogspot.Com and Erotica-Readers.Blogspot.Com, and reviews of erotica at EroticaRevealed.Com.
And Monica E. Moreno’s bio, which is perfectly accurate, as far as it goes:
Monica E. Moreno was born and raised in the Southwestern United States. She is the writer of Chicana-themed romance/erotica, poetry and literary fiction. During the day she works as a secretary, and at night she practices recetas passed down through her family. She still believes in los cuentos de hadas she heard growing up.
