These are the stories she loves to read and the stories she’s compelled to write.

EMERALD DUNGEON - A story in the 1-800-DOM-help series by Kathy Kulig

Dana's summer job as a musician in an Irish castle takes an adventurous turn after she witnesses a BDSM scene in the dungeon, and her submissive side awakens. Jack is a sexy Dominant who recognizes the sub smoldering beneath her demure exterior. His skillful commands take Dana beyond her darkest erotic fantasies.

Whips, restraints and increasing levels of pain heighten her passion, but complete surrender and ecstasy are out of her reach. Secrets and strange events around the castle only add to the couple's troubles. Will a summer affair be enough to find what they both need? The appearance of a mysterious business card may help guide them. If Dana can accept Jack with complete trust and surrender, then ultimate pleasure and true love are possible.

  1. Morning Kathy and super congrats on the new release! Wow - love the trailer and just now heading over to read the excerpt.

    I love the 1-800-Dom-help stories so I can't wait to read this one.

    Tell us a bit about the new book, from the blurb it sounds a little old castle and her past...very interesting...

    Hope the new book is your biggest seller yet!!! Enjoy your party!

  2. Happy Realse day. I love the 1-800- Dom series and this one sounds great! Makes me want to go to Ireland! I really like the video did you have any say in it?

  3. I know this will be another H-O-T winner. Love your books Kathy! Congrats on the new release.

  4. Congratulations on the release.

    Setting a BDSM book in an Irish castle's dungeon is a great, atmospheric setting choice. Why/how did you come up with it?

  5. The description sounds hot. I haven't read any of your books yet, but I am going to now! I would love to win this or another of your books, now I need to go look up what else you have written...;)

  6. Hello Kathy!

    Congratulations on your new release! Your EC bio lists so many accomplishments and hobbies. How on earth do you find time to write?

    I read the excerpt on the EC website. Wow that is some way for her to meet the Dom! I think it is very fitting to have the BDSM take place in an actual castle dungeon. How often does that really happen? LOL

    I think The Emerald Dungeon sounds exciting!

  8. Congrats on the new release. Going by the cover this going to be one "Red Hot Smoking" read

  9. Kathy, this sounds quite a very exciting read! Do you have any more for this series planned? Or any others set in Ireland? ;)

    I love the sounds of Desert of the Damned, should I be so fortunate!

  10. Hi DeNita, thanks so much for having me today. This was a fun book to write and I love being a part of the 1-800domhelp series. They have a number of great stories. I don't have computer access here at work so I can go into detail later. Tough typing on a phone lol. Yes there is a mysterious side to the story. Strange things are happening in and around the castle and Dana isn't sure if she's in the middle of something evil.

  11. The excerpt was very exciting. The blurb mentions secrets and strange events, sounds like a bit of mystery in the story. Adding it to my list to read.

  13. Congrats on the new release.It sounds really good.
    what was your favorite scene to write in this book?

  14. Hi Elizabeth, I answered a number of questions for Delphine Dryden (who made the book trailer). I gave her an idea what I wanted but let her have at it with the video. She did a fab job.

    Hey Amber, Thanks so much for stopping by to help me celebrate. :) Love your books too.

    Anne, Thank you. I took a trip to Ireland last fall & visited Bunratty castle. I have a pic of that castle up on my blog.

    Hi Mary, Thanks so much. That's so sweet of you. My books are on my website or at the Ellora's Cave site.

  15. Hi, Kathy.

    You're a new author for me but not for long!

    How much influence did you have in creating this book cover?

  16. Stacie, Hi and thanks! Time to write? Ha! Whenever I can squeeze it in bec. I have a day job. Evenings and weekends mostly. I don't watch much TV. As to how often BDSM scenes occur in castle dungeons in real life? Who knows? :) This story is all fiction.

    Hi Sarah, Thank you. Good question about the say on covers. We always fill out a cover request form and have to give details about characters, setting, mood, blurb, etc. You can request specific things but it's not always possible. EC does a fab job on their covers.

    Carla, Thanks so much. I like to think it's Hawt. :) Love those green shoes.

    Flchen1, I'd love to set other books in Ireland, or even in the same castle if this story is popular. Desert of the Damned is a good choice-my demon/shapeshifter series.

  17. Hi Jean P, it's hard not to add a little mystery when a castle is almost 600 years old. :)

    Lindseye, Thanks. I too, enjoy trying to figure out mysteries while reading. Enjoy!

    Hi Elaing8, Thanks. Wow, good question. I like different scenes for different reasons so it's hard to give a favorite. The dungeon scenes were fun and each showed a different aspect of a BDSM relationship. The scene in the club was v. hot and emotional too. Quite different than the dungeon.

    Hi Booklover, I mentioned the book cover before. Gotta fill out a form for the art dept. I've been very lucky with my covers. The key is to fill out the forms completely and hand them in on time. :) I leave the artistic stuff to the artists.

  18. Congrats on the release of your new book.

    What kind of research did you have to do for this book?

    Would love to have a copy of Seducing the Stones if I win.

  19. Hi Estella, Spending time in Ireland helped with the setting. I did some research on harp playing-not that there was much needed in the story. But I did quite a bit on the BDSM, namely a Dom/sub relationship. I read a number of books in addition to books I had read in the past like "Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns" also a number of fiction books in that genre.

  20. I love the 1-800-DOM-HELP. That's great! I see that others have asked about the trailer and the cover, so I won't repeat. When you sat down to write this book, did you envision the book you ended up with or did it form itself as you wrote it? BTW, I think the concept sounds great.

  21. Wow, this books sounds really good. Very hot! Definitely want to pick this one up.

  22. Looks like a great read:)

  23. Congratulations on your new release. What kind of book do plan on writing next?

    If I won I would love to get Damned and Desired or Desert of the Damned.

  24. Love the 1-800-DOM-HELP books and this one looks just as good. I love the cover with the splash of green in it.

  25. Congrats and sounds like an awesome book. I like the cover.
