Shawntelle’s Got You Covered – an interview with Kimberly Killion
Happy Holidays, everyone! I’m excited about this December post since I get a chance to interview Kimberly Killion, the creative director and owner of the Killion Group, the newly formed umbrella company for Hot Damn Designs. They design romance covers and so much more, but I won’t go into that since Kim’s the focus of this interview.
Let’s get to the first question that will lead to all the other ones:
Shawntelle: What services does the Killion Group provide for the romance community?
Kim Killion: Wow! I hope you’re sitting down. The Killion Group continues to add services monthly! Right now, I think we’re offering everything but house cleaning and babysitting. But seriously, we strive to be a one-stop shop for authors while maintaining quality. If you just need an eBook cover, we’ve got you covered. If you’d like a POD cover and some Romance Trading Cards. We can do it! If you’re like some of our clients and want to focus on writing, we can design your cover, format your story for print and/or eBook, upload for you and now turn it into an audiobook for you. Do you have a traditional print book that you’d like to get back out there to your readers? We can scan it, format it, put a new cover on it, narrate it… We are truly the ala carte menu of author’s needs. From branding to websites to covers to formatting AND beginning in 2013, we hope to offer authors a brand new service. Keep an eye on us for that announcement. Here’s a link to everything that we do: http://thekilliongroupinc.com/services/ Read more

Lover’s Leap by Emily March
Readers have fallen in love with Eternity Springs, the magical town in Emily March’s beloved series where something wonderful happens to hearts in need of healing.
Twenty years ago the town bad boy, Cam Murphy, left Eternity Springs in handcuffs, riding in the back of a sheriff’s van . . . and breaking young Sarah Reese’s heart. The defiant teenager vowed never to return.
In Australia, Cam makes a new beginning. He builds a successful business and suffers few regrets until Sarah—and their daughter—walk into his life, and then immediately run away. Realizing it’s time to right yesterday’s wrongs, he follows Sarah home to Colorado—and turns her world upside down.
Cam wants to know his daughter. He needs to prove to Sarah, the town, and himself that he’s changed. Will the residents of Eternity Springs offer forgiveness—and will Sarah have the courage to trust this man who is asking for a second chance? BUY NOW
A Demon Lover by Juliet Dark
I gasped, or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked my breath in and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.
Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she’s found herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.
But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: Her incubus is not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the demon, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this supernatural lover from her heart.

Determined she’ll get her money’s worth, Theo endeavors to awaken this shamefully neglected beauty to the pleasures of the flesh—only to find her dead set against taking any enjoyment in the scandalous bargain.
