An Inside Look from Heather Kuehl

Welcome to Heather Kuehl. She has been invited to interview Damian at his club Malevolent Dead. They have an exciting and interesting relationship, this author and character…so just follow her directions…

Today is a lucky day. Damian has invited me to Malevolent Dead for a one on one interview! So sit back, relax, get something tasty from the bar, and get ready for my favorite born vampire to take center stage.

Heather Kuehl: Thank you so much for accepting this interview, Damian. Your club was kind of hard to find though…

Damian: You're most welcome, my dear. Sorry about the inconvenience. We like to keep the humans who don't know about us out. Less problems that way.

HK: Of course. How is the club doing?

D: Malevolent Dead is thriving. Although we're having more and more humans trying to find us, thanks to you.

HK: I didn't…

D: *laughing* Don't worry about it, dear. The business is good and the vampires that frequent my establishment know the rules. You have nothing to worry about. Besides, if we didn't want humans to know about us, we would have you dealt with.

HK: I'm choosing to ignore that last part. How are things with Sarah? She's had a tough couple of weeks.

D: Yes, she has. Any lesser person would have broken under the stress, but not my Phai…Sarah. Not my girl.

HK: Are you allowed to divulge any details?

D: My, aren't you curious.

HK: *blushing* Now, you can't blame me for being curious.

D: Never have. I can only tell you that she's headed up to Donavan's house as we speak to be a witness at her mentor's trial. He killed several of Donavan's Clan, or so I'm told. She's also dealing with Jared's death, although I'm pretty sure I would have felt something if…

HK: If what?

D: Oh, it's nothing. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have yet to feed and I still have some tasks to attend to. Would you like to join me?

HK: Sure. Thank you, Damian, for taking the time to talk to me.

D: *Damian stands, pulling me out of my seat and into his arms* You're so very welcome, my dearest.

*Damian teleports, whisking us away to a more secluded area*

Blood Moon blurb: After she broke her contract with the Blood Moon Corporation, Sarah Vargas knew that it was only a matter of time before they came for her. What she didn't know is what lengths they would go to make sure that she had no where to run. Everyone Sarah has every relied on is in danger during a time when friends become enemies, and Sarah quickly realizes that the Blood Moon Corporation will never give up until she is dead. The Blood Moon Corporation is coming, and even Sarah doesn't think she can make it out alive.

All proceeds from Blood Moon will be going to MUSC Children's Hospital. Please visit for more information about this wonderful children's hospital.

Talk Sex with Dawne

When I began professionally writing (excluding the freelance newspaper gig) I found myself lost in a world of romance. Now, keep in mind, I am the least romantic female on the face of the planet. I prefer quiet nights at home watching reruns of Seinfeld or working on my next blog with no interrupts.

Over the years since my first published novel, Crape Myrtle, in July 2009, I've expanded my writing horizons. Crape Myrtle is a contemporary suspense romance. Inside the 170 plus pages I wrote my first sex scene. YIKES! What an eye opening experience for me.

The first novel I wrote, On Her Own, was a sweet contemporary romance that indicated sex but the bedroom door was never opened for viewing. But in Crape Myrtle, I came out full force and wrote, not one, but three sex scenes. Whew, had to wipe my brow.

Two years later, I've published three more novels, Room 11, Rachel's Desire and When We Meet Again. Now the first two mentioned are flat out erotica romance novellas whereas When We Meet Again is a contemporary romance novel. Yes, it has one graphic sex scene but I would not classify it as erotica. Maybe on a scale of one to five best it's a two flame.

While the first two erotic novels were a challenge for me (the explicit scenes, dialogue and language) because they had me stepping out of my comfort zone. When We Meet Again was more my style but sometimes I feel you have to step outside your proverbial comfort zone to widen writing skills and keep what you have to offer fresh.

I also write for men's websites offering sex and relationship advice which lead to a weekly radio segment and eventually to self-publishing a sex advice ebook, Sex Sells: Are You Buying?.

So over the years my writing horizons have expanded, my writing skills have been fine tuned and my creativity has developed beyond my wildest dreams.

Current and coming releases:

Room 11- release date February 2

Rachel's Desire- coming March 3

When We Meet Again- coming April 27

Sex Sells: Are You Buying released February 20
Crape Myrtle- July 2009
On Her Own- July 2009
