Emmanuelle de Maupassant started by interviewing 130 of us (which is close to ALL of us, isn't it?) and from there, launched a series of thoughtful and insightful pieces on the inner workings of the erotica author. We now have, at our fingertips, (both writers and readers) mucho informative and not-overly-academic in language (though close to academic in scope and clarity) reading material.
I'm a slag when it comes to blogging, I might as well admit it. My blog is PANTS. But that doesn't mean the culmination of Emmanuelle's work should go unmentioned by me. (After all, I'm not unmentioned by her preen preen)
We have lots to say. I'm chuffed to be part of this project and I know my colleagues are as well.
Here's the latest in the series, Women Writing the Erotic part three, but there are a lot of titles worth exploring, and they can be found here on Emmanuelle de Maupassant's website.
Thank you for your hard work, Emmanuelle.
