Special Guests…

I recently read about a new book that sounds very interesting…

Close Encounters by B.H. Dark.

B.H. Dark is the pseudonym for bestselling authors Julie Cohen and Kathy Love.


closeencounters_pr4CLOSE ENCOUNTERS is an erotic science fiction romantic comedy about what happens when aliens with strange ideas about human sexuality—and no clue about human love—abduct two Earthling men and two Earthling women in order to form an intergalactic porn empire.


Now doesn’t that sound interesting?
I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure what to think about it when I first read the blurb for the book, but the more I learned, the more intrigued I became and I truly look forward to reading it as it sounds like a fun read.  And after “chatting” with my guests today I am even more intrigued.


Even though I haven’t had a chance to read their story, I was very happy when I got a chance to interview Beau and Leandros, the heroes of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS.


Thank you, Beau and Leandros, for joining me today.  I am glad to get a chance to talk with you.

Beau: Lady, are you an alien?  How are you communicating with us on the spaceship?

Leandros: Calm down, dude, this place is whacked. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is just another hologram.

Beau: Jennifer, if that’s your real name, I’m just telling you now, I’m totally not having sex with you, no matter what the aliens want.  I’m a one-woman man.


Um…that’s okay…I’m not here for that…um…*shuffles notes nervously*…so how are you doing?  What have you been up to?

Leandros: Well, last thing I knew I was finishing up a double set at the Starlight Casino and then suddenly, BAM! I was in a blue tube in a spaceship with a gorgeous woman called Eve, being pumped with pheremones.

Beau: Yup, same here.  Though I’m not complaining about the gorgeous woman part, Cassie is the most amazing person I’ve ever met. I’m not so hot on the constant wardrobe changes and all the holograms, though.  I’m just a mechanic from Alabama, I don’t really know about all this freaky spaceship stuff.

Leandros: Yeah, and I wouldn’t mind losing the voyeuristic aliens either. 


Sorry to hear that.  I don’t really blame you.  I heard that author B.H. Dark recently wrote a book featuring you called, Close Encounters.  What can you tell us about it?

Beau: What?  Wait–we’re on a spaceship and now we’re in a book? 

Leandros: If I’m in a book I’d better get some damn royalties out of it, that’s all I’m saying.  Talk to my agent.


Um…well…I don’t know anything about that.  I am just telling you what I’ve heard.  I take it you haven’t read it yet then?

Leandros:  Hmm.  Jennifer, or alien, whoever you are, it’s like this.  I’m being put in an endless variety of pornographic scenarios so that aliens can watch me getting it on with my lady in every way possible.  You think I have time to read?

Beau: Though I’d like to read it at some point.


Point taken.  Since you can’t comment on the book, can you tell my blog readers a little more about yourselves?

Beau: Well before I was forced to become a star of intergalactic X-rated movies, I worked in my Uncle Merle’s garage.  Though, to be honest, I have bigger dreams than that.  And y’know now that I think about it, being abducted by aliens and meeting someone who you could potentially really fall in love with, does make you rethink what you’ve been doing in your life.

Leandros: I was born to perform, baby.  I’m a Vegas lounge singer and proud of it.  Though lately I’ve started to wonder if there’s anything more out there.


Hmm…How about describing yourself with three words?

Leandros: Greek, talented, well-hung.

Beau: Laid-back, southern, and…

Leandros: You’re a good guy, man.  Just an all-round good guy.


Leandros, you mentioned that you are a lounge singer.  What’s your favorite song to sing?

Leandros: It used to be “Viva Las Vegas.”  But since I met Eve, it’s more like “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.”


Aww…And what about you, Beau, is there anything readers might be surprised to learn about you?

Beau: You might find this hard to believe, what with the long hair and the leather jacket and the ripped jeans, but I got all A’s back in school.  I wanted to go to college, but life sort of got in the way.


That’s cool!  You’ve mentioned Eve and Cassie, can you two tell us them?

Beau: Cassie’s sweet, and adorable, and sexy as hell, and though she doesn’t have a lot of life experience, she’s really smart. 

Leandros: Dude, she’s really emotional.

Beau:  Whoa there, man, she’s got reason to be emotional.  She’s gone from a sheltered life in Connecticut with her parents, to having sex with me in every way possible–not that I’m complaining, that’s the good part.  But it’s a lot to deal with.

Leandros: I’d never have met anyone like Eve if not for this spaceship.  She’s together, elegant, stylish, and she’s serious about life in a way that I never found appealing before.  But on her, it works.


They sound very special.  So, what do you like to do for fun?

Leandros: Lady, right now, on this spaceship, what we like to do for fun is way too X-rated for this interview.

Beau: You can say that again.


Point taken…again.  Guess I should have thought about that, huh?  Well, I know you are busy (getting busy apparently), but before you go is there anything you’d like to ask my blog readers?

Beau: Have you ever been abducted by aliens?

Leandros: And if so, how did you get the hell out of here?
Beau: Actually, y’know, I’m not so sure I want to get out of here.  Not right now, anyway.  Cassie—

Leandros: I know, dude.  You and Cassandra, and me and Eve…our lives on Earth are too different.  It’s only the spaceship that’s bringing us together. 

Beau: I guess that’s the question, then.  Would you give up everything you have on Earth, for love?

Leandros: Don’t forget the great sex.


Good questions!  Thanks so much for joining me!

Beau: No problem, it’s been the most fun I’ve had with my clothes on for a long time.



Wasn’t that a fun interview?
