Chatting with Cody Martin!
You have the opportunity to hire anybody as your cover artist. If you write children’s books or books that are heavily illustrated, who would you get for the interior artwork?
Oh, I just wish my books were heavily illustrated – as an erotic romance author – that could be very interesting. Sable’s Sexual Positions – ah yes. Seriously, I have 15 books and most of them have Jimmy Thomas on the cover – and he is one luscious hunk. SCP has a great cover artist named Dawne Dominique. I have also used the talented Niina Cord and Covers by Ramona. My brother Jess has a book coming out soon and he has chosen to do something different – more 50 shades of Grey or Twilight – it’s just fire. For A Hero – it’s going to be good. Covers, to me, should give you a hint of what the book is about. The greatest compliment I received on a cover was Burning Love when a woman said – at last - a cover that depicts a scene in the book. And she was right, I had Harley down on her knees licking Beau’s tummy - - yea, I bet you expected something different from this interview – didn’t you? – ha!
Who would you co-write your next novel with? What genre? Why?
I would love to co-author a book with Shayla Black. She is one of my favorite authors. I would keep it in the erotic romance category, maybe an anthology. I could see us doing something on Bull Rider’s or Hockey Players. Right now I am coauthoring two books – one with my talented brother Jess Hunter entitled FOR A HERO and one with the sexy Ryan O’Leary entitled THUNDERBIRD.
Your publisher wants to do an audiobook version of your novel and they’re not sparing any expense. Who do you think can narrate your masterpiece?
That’s easy – I already have him in my sights. Alan Cooke is an Emmy award winning writer and filmmaker with an Irish voice that will make you swoon. He created a trailer for me for my Hell Yeah series and we are discussing audio books, also. He is talented and worth every penny.

They’re really going all out! Your novel is getting a full soundtrack. Who should compose it? If your novel uses a lot of songs, list your compilation here.
Oh, my goodness – music is not my thing. I do play classical piano and I do sing, but I don’t listen to a lot of music. I love Elvis, but he has left the building – ha! Jess has given me advice though and he says Howard Shore who composed The Bridge of KHAZAD-DUM which was used in the new Superman trailer. He also did the music for Eclipse, the new Twilight movie.
In my books, a lot of music is mentioned – everything from Unchained Melody, Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On, and every Elvis song you can imagine – lots of stripper numbers, too – hahaha!
Congratulations! Your novel is being turned into a major motion picture. As the creator of the original work, you get to pick the director.
The director has some ideas on who to cast, but you get to cast one character. What role/character is it and who portrays them?
Nick Cassavetas who directed THE NOTEBOOK would be my choice. And yes, I want to pick one character – yum – I want Michael Scratch to play Aron McCoy – God, I love his butt! Michael Scratch is a hunk and a half and I have used him as inspiration for my sex scenes more times than I can count. Since he is already starring in my imagination – he might as well get paid for it.
You’ve been hired to write a novel based on a preexisting character or franchise from another medium. Which character or franchise is it?
I’d love to write an erotic romance about JOHN ROSS EWING of DALLAS and this time he falls hard for a woman and is FAITHFUL!!! HA! I’d love to tame J. R. Jr.
It’s the anniversary of your favorite literary character’s debut. You’ve been hired (yay, work!) to write an anniversary novel. Who is the literary character?
The anniversary novel I would most like to write is one concerning Clive Cussler’s character, Dirk Pitt – I’d write him a romance novel – an adventure. Yes, everything has to be a romance and there must be hot sex. The setting I would like is Louisiana and I would have him solving some great mysteries concerning Indian Burial Mounds, the underground railroad and haunted plantations. Sounds like a winner to me.
Thanks for inviting me to do this, Cody Martin!
