Dakota is here! And a Giveaway of a Beth Kery book?
Monday, May 4th, 2009

You run across a lot of nice, talented people in this business. Dakota Cassidy is all that, plus a true original. If you haven’t read her funny, spirited paranormals yet, you are in for a real treat. She’s here today to tell us about Kiss and Hell, her new book that comes out from Berkley in June. In the way of a true southern lady, Dakota said she wanted to give away a copy of one of my books for her contest! Isn’t she amazing? If you leave Dakota a comment or question, you will qualify to win a copy of one of my books (it has to be in print or pre-order availability.) Dakota says she will ship it from Amazon to anywhere.

Kiss and Hell

She’s never seen a sexier ghost.

Delaney Markham doesn’t just see dead people, she hears them too. And FYI-communicating with tortured souls all day can really wreak havoc on your love life. After all, no one wants to date the crazy chick that talks to herself. Sans boyfriend, Delaney makes the best of her gift by holding séances and earns a pretty penny for them too, that is until one incredibly annoying ghost just won’t go away.

Now, if she could only get her hands on him.

When he materializes wearing nothing, Delaney knows something’s up. Besides being sinfully hot-in a college professor sort of way-all signs point to Clyde Atwell being much more than the ordinary spirit. In fact, he’s a newbie demon whose first assignment is to take Delaney back down to hell with him. Yeah, like that’s gonna happen on the first date. If Delaney’s old nemesis Lucifer thinks she’s going down without one hell of a fight, he’s got another thing coming…

Dakota’s Interview

BK: Welcome, Dakota. I’m so glad to have you here. What is sure to distract you from sitting down and working/writing?

DC: Rock Band and or Guitar Hero World Tour. There’s nothing like the Foo Fighters Everlong to keep me from getting things done.

BK: *grinning* I can just picture it. What are you working on presently?

DC: Presently I’m working on the sequel to Kiss and Hell, titled, My Way To Hell. Think demons that’re now ghosts and a hot male ghost whisperer who looks better in jeans than Melinda Gordon.

BK: Snort. OMG, sounds awesome. What about upcoming releases?

DC: My next is Kiss and Hell, and after that is Accidentally Demonic in Feb of 2010.

BK; What’s the best compliment you ever got on your writing or a book?

DC: Probably that I write exactly like I am in person. Well, maybe that’s not a compliment. LOLLOL

BK: You know, it’s true Dakota. That was what I meant above–you’re very real and original in a marvelous way. If you could time travel to any time or place—the past or future—where and when would you go to, and why?

DC: I’d so go back to the 50’s. I’d have rocked the whole June Cleaver thing. I’m really good at running a household—and I love to do the twist. LOLLOL

BK: You would be fabulous in the 50’s Dakota. I can just see you keeping house with your hair all coifed and nails perfect. Thanks so much for coming by today, Dakota. It was so unexpected and kind of you to offer to give away one of MY books. (What did I tell you guys, a real original in the best possible sense.)

    Oh la la, Accidentally Demonic? I hadn’t heard of that one yet. Would it be appropriate to yell up and down screaming? Probalby not, especially not with these stiches. Hm. Well, imagine a 6’5″ woman in stiches jumping up and down REALLY excited like. Close enough, right?

    And Beth Kery is now going on my “TBR” list. The cover of “Sweet Restraint” looks like one of my better dates, and that is a GOOOOOOD thing 🙂 I love how these contests work, as I keep finding all sorts of new authors from them. I can’t wait to see the next one!

    Dakota – keep in mind that there wasn’t Guitar Hero in the 50s. Sure you don’t want to change your mind?

    Both of your (Beth and Dakota’s) book sound wonderful. I’m assuming there’s no tie in between Kiss and Hell and the Accidental series?

    True dat, there’s no RB in the 50’s, but I know exactly what I’d do when I wasn’t making casseroles and shining up my heels–I’d take DRUM lessons. LOLLOL
