Hello and welcome Sable Hunter to my site. She has so graciously agreed to be interviewed.
So lets begin...
1) First, tell us a little about yourself so the readers know who you are?
Yes, I’m Sable Hunter and I write erotic romances that run the gamut from cowboys to New Orleans witches to Texas good old boys that play football one day and ride bulls the next. I grew up in south Louisiana along the mysterious bayous where the Spanish moss hangs thick over the dark waters. The culture of Louisiana has shaped my outlook on life and has made its way into my
paranormal romances where the supernatural is entirely normal. Presently, I live in Texas and spend most of my time in wild and wonderful Austin. In the spring, my home sits in a field of bluebonnets.
While writing takes up a lot of my time, I also love to cook Cajun, Creole and Tex-Mex. I am passionate about animals and have been known to charm creatures from a one-ton bull to a family of raccoons. For fun, I have been known to haunt cemeteries and battlefields armed with night vision cameras and digital recorders hunting proof that love survives beyond the grave.
I write for Secret Cravings Publishing and have several books coming out in the next year.
SC: Could I have some recipes 🙂
2) What made you decide to write? Was it something you accidentally began? Or what you wanted to do? Or annoying character who refused to leave until their story was told?
I write, mainly, for my own amusement. The stories that I create are the kind that I like to read. I didn’t discover the erotic romance genre until about eighteen months ago, before that I made up my own sensual tales because I don’t like to stand at the closed bedroom door and just wonder what is happening on the other side. I like to go in – sit down – watch, and take notes.
I also like to create worlds where I control that good prevails and the villain is punished. My heroes are the kind of man that I want in my life – a man that is passionate, possessive, puts me first and is sexy as hell. So, I live in my stories – fall in love with the heroes – and I am always, always the heroine. My books make me happy.
SC: I love creating worlds.
3) I love hearing about first acceptances as an aspiring writer and now that I am e-published, I still love hearing about them. So tell us about that first acceptance.
I have been self-publishing for about a year with quite a bit of success. One of the great things that happened was that I met a lot of nice people – other authors, readers and site owners that treated me with respect, even though i wasn’t traditionally published. One day, I was privileged to meet another author on a loop that read some of my excerpts. She asked me who my publisher was and when I told her that I didn’t have one, she said – “well you will by this time tomorrow.” She contacted someone for me and told me to submit my manuscript – I did and it was accepted eight hours later.
A lot of wonderful things have happened to me as a result of my writing, but the people I have met who became my friends is the ultimate reward.
SC: Oh, wow. What a way to get accepted. Love it.
4) Tell us about your current release? Where can readers buy it from?
My current release is T-R-O-U-B-L-E, it is a contemporary erotic romance with a cowboy theme. Here is the blurb:
Trouble comes calling on Kyler Landon. He falls hard and fast for his
beautiful, mysterious neighbor after she saves him from a rattlesnake
attack. The sexual tension mounts between them with each sensual
encounter, but he soon realizes that Cooper has been hurt and is
leery of men. So he sets out to teach her that a real man can be
gentle, loving, and sexy as hell.
Trouble seems to follow Cooper, and Ky makes it his mission to protect
her from her past. Kyler would move heaven and earth to keep her in
his bed and in his life
Readers can buy it from Secret Cravings or my website
5) What are you currently writing?
I am currently writing the third in my Hell Yeah! Series about the McCoy brothers. It is my most popular series and my favourite. The title of this book will be HER MAGIC TOUCH. I am working on the third in the TEXAS HEAT series – a book called Spanish Eyes. I have a lot of work to do.
SC: Excellent news, can I expect you to come here again? 🙂
6) What inspires you most when you write?
Men. Seriously. My hero becomes my guy and I work at telling his story and making his life work out the way I think would make him happier. My stories are always about the guys. Oh, that’s not to say that my heroines are not fully developed characters with mountains to climb and obstacles to overcome – but my focus is always the hero.
SC: Great answer.
7) What experiences have you had working with your publisher/s?
Only good ones. Secret Cravings has been excellent to work with. I have sold four to them so far and have that many more to submit.
SC: I love Secret Cravings as well.
8) What are you reading now?
Right now, I am reading Heather Rainier’s – Maya’s Triple Dare. She is one of my favourite authors and one of the nicest people I know.
9) What are your guilty pleasures?
Gee – I have so many. I love to eat BBQ Fritos, a sour pickle and a Diet Dr. Pepper. Cooking is a passion – I cook Creole, Cajun and Tex/Mex.
And I love, love, love – animals. I own Beefmaster Bulls which I raise by hand and i have owned raccoons, skunks and a wolf cub. I also love to ghost hunt and long to prove that love survives beyond the grave. Okay – I admit – I’m nuts. SC: Nice to see so many guilty pleasures. I adore cooking any chance I can buzz you for recipes?
10) What would be your advice, if any, for other aspiring authors?
My advice is GET AFTER IT! Write what you know and write from the heart. There are so many opportunities for writers right now – self-publishing – ebooks – a good writer has no excuse.
Sable will give one lucky commenter a free e-copy of her book.
This is for you to talk more about yourself, leave your blogging details, site details and generally promote yourself.
I write three genres – paranormal, contemporary and cowboy. My cowboy books are the most popular and my inspiration are the Texas men that I have known and loved.

Here’s an excerpt from T-R-O-U-B-L-E
She scooted back against the couch, giving him as much room as possible. Stretching out beside her, Ky lay on his side, facing her. “Don’t be nervous, baby. This is going to feel so good for you, I promise. And you’re going to enjoy it as much as I will.” Pulling her close, he nudged one of his legs between hers, and clasped her behind the knee, guiding her leg up over his hip. When he had finished, their bodies were nestled intimately together.
“Just last night, I lay in my bed so very lonely.” She touched his forehead, teasing a lock of his light brown hair. “I thought of you.” A small laugh escaped her throat. “Do you know that I watch for you when I drive by your house, hoping I will see you?”
He held her close and feathered little kisses all over her face. Soft. Sweet. His breathing was coming a little faster. “Yeah. And I would watch you go by. I had worked out this whole fantasy in my mind about who you were and what you looked like…” He took her bottom lip in his mouth and nibbled on it, laving it with his tongue.
“I used to imagine what we would do together. When you walked into my life, I was floored. You are the most beautiful woman I have ever known. I can’t tell you how hard it was to hold myself back. And when I found out you were my mystery woman, Cooper—you’ll never know what that did to me. Right from the start, it seemed as if I knew you—that we could skip the preliminaries. I guess you’ve noticed how I talk to you; the sweethearts, loves, babes. Cooper, I don’t talk like this. I have never spoken to another woman like this. But with you, I can’t help it.” All the time he was talking, he was stealing kisses, drawing designs on her skin with his fingers, getting her ready for his loving.
Slowly, he slipped one hand to her back and released the clasp on her bra. Cooper’s breath hitched in her throat. “I love how you talk to me. It makes me feel safe.” Ky didn’t stop to analyze her statement, his eyes were on what he was unveiling. He scooted himself down on the couch, until his face was even with her breasts.
“Oh, Cooper,” he breathed reverently. “You are so beautiful.” Ky couldn’t help himself; he enfolded her in his embrace and pressed his face to her breasts, kissing the side of one and then the side of the other then trailing his tongue down the tender valley. Her breasts were just right, probably a C cup. They were perfectly proportioned to her body; full, round and aching for his touch. Even though his attention was fully focused on the pleasurable task before him, Ky was aware her little hand was stroking his shoulder and his arm, wanting as much contact as he did. He looked up at her face to see her eyes were closed, but her lips were parted and the pink tip of her tongue was playing along her upper lip. He smiled. Cooper was getting into this.
“Your nipples are like sweet, tight, little raspberries.” Ky hadn’t touched them with his lips yet, he was building up to that. Right now, he was delighting himself in cupping, molding, massaging, and teasing the tantalizing globes. Cooper arched her back, pushing the soft mounds deeper into his hands. “Does that feel good, love?”
“Oh, yes,” she whispered. “It makes me want…it makes me want…”
“It makes you want what, doll?” Gradually, he worked his way to her nipples. Softly, he circled one nipple, coming closer and closer to the center. He watched it pout and pucker as if reaching up for a kiss.
“I want…” She moaned when he took both nipples between his fingers and began to rub and pull gently. “I want…” Cooper gasped for breath as he milked the tight buds and the fevered areola in a rhythmical motion that caused her hips to lift in supplication. “Oh, Ky, you don’t know—I can’t tell you—that feels…incredible.”
“I bet I can make it feel even better.” He began kissing the upper swells of her breasts, still playing with her nipples. Cooper had wound her fingers in his hair and was kissing the top of his head while making little happy noises in her throat. Then he took them both to the next level. Opening his mouth, he sighed as he finally let himself feast on her nipples. He groaned at their sweetness. First one. Then the other.
“God, Ky.” Cooper cried out at the sensual assault. “Open your mouth wider, baby. Take more of me in. Suck harder!” Ky couldn’t help but laugh. Cooper had lost her inhibitions. He lifted up a silent prayer of thanks as he obeyed her every command.
Something was happening. Ky’s mouth was taking her to heights of ecstasy she had not even known existed. Tightness was building in her sex; desire was spiraling out beyond her control. Heat was spreading up from between her legs. Her nipples felt like they were on fire. She wanted to move, she wanted to push upward. She wanted to scream.
So she did.
A climax hit Cooper so hard every cell in her body sparked with electricity. Wave after wave of white-hot delight billowed outward from the molten core between her legs. She felt her hips jerk spasmodically, and Ky held her tight, his body moving against hers, as he continued to suckle at her breasts. “I never knew, Ky. I had no idea.”
Cooper wasn’t the only one surprised at the pleasure. He had done something he had never done before.
Kyler Landon had come in his skivvies.
When Cooper had come apart in his arms, making those sexy little sounds, he had exploded in his shorts. Without a touch. Without any physical stimulation at all.
