where the writers are
Escort Moi?
mina.jpg

My husband is leaving for Madagascar in mid-October, this time he'll be gone almost six months. We're sad around here. A lot of tension, some excitement, and a lot of tears.

One of the saddest things is that he's going to miss my Grand Prize winnings from the Red Room Housewarming Party contest. Since the dinner/night in swanky hotel will happen almost a month after Madagascar Man leaves, I need an escort. I thought about hiring a gigolo. ( Anybody know where I can get one? Nah, me either.)

I have a number of friends who I would love sharing the evening with, but how to choose? So I've decided to do it another way -- a writing contest.

Would you like to be my escort? Simply tell me why, in 100 words or less. You don't need to be a writer, and gender doesn't matter.

Who ever escorts me will attend dinner at Michael Mina in San Francisco on November 9 with me, Terry McMillan, Phil Bronstein, Jennifer Gibbons, Ivory Madison, plus their respective escorts. (You will be my Escort, not my Consort -- hotel room not included -- Madagascar Man will be on the other side of the globe but still in my heart.)

Send me the reasons why YOU should be my escort to Ericka@ErickaLutz.com by October 15.

And in other news, I'm starting a new course of study, a six month mentorship program with none other than the woman I call "my wise woman." I'm excited, nervous, and ready for this new direction.  By the time Madagascar Man comes home I should be so evolved. Check out my reading list:

Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy -- Georg Feuerstein
The Tantric Quest -- Daniel Odier
Desire  -- Daniel Odier
Yoga Spandakarika -- Daniel Odier
Kundalini:  Energy of the Depths -- Lilliane Silburn
Focusing -- Eugene Gendlin
Space Cruiser Inquiry -- AH Almaas

And I'm outta here -- off to the hot springs for a little woo woo time and a little writing time. Back Saturday. Ciao!

Me me me!

Because I love hanging out with you. Because we both love good food and it will be FUN to swoon over it together. Because we have lots to talk about, as always. Because I love hanging out with you.

A strong entry

I love the use of repetition -- a powerful poetic tool!

I'll let you (and everybody else) know in about a week -- think I'm going to have to draw entries out of a hat!

Why You Should Pick Me

You should pick me because the other guests will be thrilled to have dinner with a real, honest-to-goodness sex writer, and I could give them a sneak peek into the results of my latest survey for my upcoming book, What Women Really Want in Bed, as well as tidbits from What Men Really Want in Bed (who knew that 50% of men fake orgasm?). Plus, I'll bring you a signed copy of Red Hot Tantra for your mentorship program. What's not to love?

Spice

So if you're the winner, you'll add some SPICE to the meal, that's what I'm hearing....!

Why I'd love to escort you...

Because I'm down in the dumps right, having been laid off two jobs in the same day, and because you sweet, spunky Ericka, are great company!

 I promised not to whine or complain. It would simply be delightful to find childcare and get out of my head... with you!

 

xo,
