My anthology Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women just got a rave review by Petula Caeser in Baltimore City Paper. (There's even a really cute illustration!)
Of Marie Lyn Bernard's opening story "Fucking Around" she writes:
It's such a creative spin on erotic writing that I must admit to some professional jealousy as a fellow erotica writer.
She goes on to say:
...the way the Dominic writes about the calm manner in which he describes each act before he skillfully and excitedly executes it is erotica at its best.
It is just that type of creativity that keeps you engaged with theses stories, from beginning to end, no matter what the subject. It is easy for a writer to exhaust his or her options as far as scenarios, motivations, and descriptive language go when it comes to writing about sex, so I applaud these women for keeping their work fresh. Even when an author resorts to tried/true erotic themes--such as voyeurism, infidelity, strangers having sex in unexpected places, or threesomes--there were always enjoyable surprises in the plot, word choices, or characters. Bussel has done some of her best editorial work with Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women. Each and every one of the book's 394 pages shows she knows what girls like--and you're fortunate that she does.
