The Dahlia Rose Update!

Well my lovelies. Spring has sprung. I am going to be moving this weekend. A concept I do not love to do. Oh how I wish I could wake up tomorrow morning and everything be moved and in its perfect place! (yeah we don't have moving fairies do we? LOL). I have endeavored to get everything moved and put away by Sunday afternoon. Wish me luck!

On the writing front my love lost love found story called "An Eternal Flame" was contracted by MGP! Woo Hoo. It is s story of Simone who lost her love (a firefighter) when the towers fell on September 11th. His bestfriend Julian promised to take care of her and now he has fallen in love with her to. Even though five years has passed Simone still grieves. Will Julian be able to heal her borken hreat and show her love can still bloom?

I just finished "Of Gods & One Woman" and has sent it out for submission. It is my contemporary version of a greek god love story. Ares God of war knows that mortals have forgotten about the days when gods ruled. He is tired to sitting on the sidelines and watching the battles go one without him. He has been watching Sasha Green, she is a modern day crime fighter who helps the inncent the best she can. But one night she is killed and Ares begs a favor from his brother Hades to give her back her life. What does Sasha pay in this deal? She has to let Ares fight side by side with her and oh yes! he wants her to be his lover. This book is filled with hot erotica and sensuality and love. When Ares figures out he has feelings for Sasha he goes a bit balisitc Sasha has a fire cracker personality and Ares power means nothing to her. Plus Discordia Goddess of mischief is Ares ex- lover and none to happy that he has feelings for a mortal. she has revenge planned and it will not be pretty. Wish me luck and hopefully I'll have a contract for this very soon.

"The Collette Saga" is my vampire trilogy and the who series had been contracted by Star Dust Press. It is of sisters born as vampires, the only ones ever born from a vampire mother. from the time of their birth, their destiny has been written. Sola, Luna and Willa are three hundred years old this year and they are the only ones who can find the three pieces of the Lazurus Amulet. Each piece alone can allow the vampire who wears it to walk in the daylight. Together the amulet is the most powerful thing on this earth. They have to find it before the ultimate of evil vampires Carthos want to find it for him self so he can fill the world with carnage. The sisters has been chased from birth, humans who know vampires exist would rather see them dead before the amulet fall into the undead's head. Vampires want them to find it so that they can take it from them and walk the world. Hunted from both sides the vamperious ladies have to each turn a companion to help them find the amulet. Will they succeed in thier quest. In the Collette Saga book one is called "The Heart of Sola. Look for it coming soon from Star Dust Press!

Kisses From Kissa Starling!

Good Friday to you all Guys & Dolls!
I have the sensual and the erotic Kissa Starling for out interview today! Her stories are electric and so is this lady herself. You'll see as you read her interview!

1. Dahlia: One of my favorite writers is here with us to day welcome Kissa to my interview world today! How about giving us a little background about you?”

Thank you so much for the welcome Dahlia. I have written since the day I was born- diaries, short stories and poetry. I decided last summer that I would write with the intent to publish. I happened upon an erotic writing contest and my fingers haven’t stopped typing since. I live in Georgia with my husband, son and a multitude of pets. We share our home with two dogs, two cats, two rabbits and two hermit crabs.


2: Dahlia: Your books are filled with eroticism and sensuality. What fills your imagination when you write these stories?

I have an endless imagination. My goal is to take readers on new, exciting, erotic journeys. Many of my stories contain BDSM elements. I have been in the lifestyle for about ten years now. In that time I have observed, or been a part of, many sensual activities. My husband inspires many of my works.

3: Dahlia: What current releases do you have now?

Right now I have two free reads at Sensual Venus. (http://www.sensualvenus.com/authors/kissa-starling.htm) These are actually the first two chapters of a novel I am working on. They are the first stories I published online right after I started submitting.

4: Dahlia: Do you have any upcoming books the readers should look for?

My first short story, ‘Candy Kisses’, is set to be released on June 6th at http://www.twilightfantasiespublications.com . It is a ‘Twisted Fairytale’ that explores fun f/f relationships. I will be doing an awesome give-a-way to celebrate my first release. Here is a blurb:
CANDY KISSES, an erotic version of the Little Red Riding Hood story, involves a character named Red who is driving to her grandmother' s house to deliver a basket of homemade goodies. Red doesn't heed her mother's warning not to eat the goodies. Each sinful bite leads to an erotic escapade!

My story, ‘Profiling’, will be available when Steamy Audio opens. It is a new publisher and set to open this summer. My story can be downloaded here:

7: Dahlia: Kissa I saw on one of your websites that you have stories in audio form. Could you tell us more about it? What made you decide to try this form?

I read the call for submissions from Steamy Audio and was so intrigued. I sold them ‘Profiling’ and I’m in the process of submitting additional stories to them. I’m really excited about this new form of erotic story. Readers will be able to download short, erotic stories for a reasonable price and listen to them whenever they want. This will be especially helpful for readers who don’t see well. I believe that everyone should have access to titillating erotic romance.

8: Dahlia: Do you write full time? If not what other hats does Kissa wear?

If you add up the time I spend writing every day and on the weekends- it adds up to a full time job. I come home every day and spend time on my writing. I have learned so much in the past few months. I work full time during the day also in the education field. It is another aspect of my life that is time consuming but I love it. There is nothing better than making a difference in someone’s life. I am also a full time wife and mother. Those jobs take precedence with me.

9: Dahlia: Are there any scenes in your books you find are difficult to write/ if yes could you explain why?

I can’t say that I have a difficult time writing any particular scene. My mind is a whirlwind full of ideas right now. One area I spend a lot of time on is research. My first novella is a time travel set in the 1950’s. I had so much fun researching cars, settings, clothing and books for that era. I am in the process of finding a home for that story.

10: Dahlia: On your blog there are thirteen things to know about Kissa Starling? Could you share a few of them?

I would love to share some things about me. I love walking on the beach and listening to the ocean. I love drive-in movies. (Yes, I still have one by me!) I love riding on the back of my husband’s Harley Davidson. There is nothing better than going down the road with a huge, vibrating machine between your legs. Here is something corny- I love playing games. I play Monopoly, Clue, Scrabble, cards, dominoes- anything ‘fun’.

11: Dahlia: What is a perfect relaxation day for you Kissa?

Sleeping in late would have to be first. I rarely get that indulgence anymore. I love to cook so I would make breakfast and let someone else clean up the mess. Afterwards I would go for a long walk and commune with nature. I love being outside. I might stop along the way to read. When I came home I would put on my fuzzy pajamas and sit around on the couch watching old movies. I would play basketball with my son, still in my pajamas of course. I would probably meditate sometime before bed. Kissing my husband good night would bring my perfect day to a close.

12: Dahlia: Out of all of your books which one was your favorite to write and who is your favorite characters? Tell us why?

So far my favorite character is Angel from my time travel story. She is a dominant femme who learns a lot about herself during her travels. Her biggest lesson is to take love where you find it and treasure that love. She also learns a lot about herself as a person by helping others throughout the story.

13: Dahlia: What are your aspirations for your writing career this year?

I have thought a lot about this the last few weeks and have even written down some goals. I have several short stories that are under consideration right now. I am hoping to get good news on several of them. My biggest goal is to write my first, full-length novel. I plan to finish it by the end of the summer so that I can submit. I think the quality of writing can always be improved so I am involved in several writing forums and online classes to enhance my writing. I plan to share all that I have learned with a new author just getting started. I am going to start a monthly newsletter as soon as I work out all of the details. This way I will be able to keep in closer touch to my readers. Another goal is to have a website up and running by the end of the summer. This will be in conjunction with my writing partner. My biggest aspiration- keep writing.

14: Dahlia: : If you could have one hot guy for a day to do your bidding who would it be and what will he be doing?

My husband is the hottest guy I know. I would have him massaging me for hours. He would have to take a bubble bath with me and wash my hair. He would have to cook for me, he is an awesome cook, and bring it to me in bed. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Maybe I’ll put it in my next story!


15: Dahlia: Is there any genre that you want to try your hand at writing?

Yes. I have thought about working on a historical. I love doing the research so this might just be perfect for me. I submitted my first short chick-lit story this week. Wish me luck!

16: Dahlia: Where can the readers find out more about you Kissa?

I have a relatively new blog at: http://www.myspace.com/kissastarling
I love getting comments from readers. Feel free to email me anytime at kissa_starling@yahoo.com

That was Kissa Starling ladies and gents! She will fill your memory with the sensual kisses of her erotic words. Look for her stories not only in written form, but in audio form as well. I know I’d love to hear some one whispering a sexy story in my ear!
See ya next week luvvies!
