Seduce Your Reader--And Yourself

The next installment in my writer's feast is up: Seduce Your Reader--And Yourself: Erotic Sex, Sexier Erotica, and Very Versatile Salads.  I consider timeless questions such as "What's the difference between erotica and pornography?" (there is indeed a difference and I will go to the arm wrestling mat to defend my opinion); "How much sex does an erotic story need?" (as much as possible, silly, but be sly about it); and "How can I make a tasty salad from this week's CSA veggie box?" (it depends on the season, but follow your instincts or my directions, whichever appeals at the moment).  It was fun to write and I hope fun to read.  Bon Appetit!
