About David Vernon

I am a freelance writer and editor. I am father of two boys. For the last few years I have focussed my writing interest on chronicling women and men’s experience of childbirth and promoting better support for pregnant women and their partners. Recently, for a change of pace, I am writing two Australian history books. In 2014 I was elected Chair of the ACT Writers Centre.

In 2010 I established the Stringybark Short Story Awards to promote the short story as a literary form.

This is a deliciously sexy book. I think my favourite story was Julie Davies story, Paradise Lost. Her descriptions and sense of humour are delightful. Rebecca Raisin's story, the "Art of Woman" is sensuous and very erotic. This is a lovely collection.

Looking for porn? Don't bother with this one. But looking for good erotica, sexy erotica, arousing erotica, then this is a beaut anthology. Well presented and very sexy.

I've read a few erotic fiction stories now but this collection really is delightful and sexy. I do like Julie Davies story, "Paradise Lost" but there are many other lovely stories too.

"Paradise Lost" is a stand out in this collection of delicious erotic tales. What does Adam get up to with Eve? Well written, much variety in the writing content and style, entertaining and a sexy collection.

I bought this book some months ago and read it from cover to cover with my partner. Since then it has been in our bottom drawer to be brought out for a re-reading when the desire takes it. Some of these stories are really delicious and get the juices flowing. One or two are a little ho-hum but erotica is very personal and I am sure someone will enjoy them. This is a wonderful collection. I can't wait to read more.

Wow! Real life tales from real people.
They are all excellent (Morgana's was particularly memorable). Thanks so much for the journey!

Some true erotica at last! Having trawled much of the free rubbish here on Smashwords it is beaut to find a great selection of erotic fiction stories that truly do arouse the reader. Julie Davies story of Adam and Eve is just wonderful. Production quality is high and that also is great — for once.

There are some very quirky and clever stories among this erotic anthology. And for once this is an erotic e-book that is stylish and literary and not simply a rehashing of Penthouse Letters. The best bit about this collection is that the stories actually ARE erotic.

A sexy collection of intriguing and arousing stories. A fascinating selection of stories with something for everyone... or nearly everyone. Good layout and excellent production quality.

I had fun reading this collection of erotica. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Writing erotica is such a challenge, and I think all of these authors did a great job. So I dare you, read it, you never know what you might learn!
Oh, and as a side note two of my stories feature in this book! Between the sheets and Art of a woman. I'd love to know what you think of these two very different stories!

This is a yummy collection. While some of the stories included are a bit hum-drum, there are many that do more than titillate – they make you think or have a twist in the tail (and in the tale).
