Author Interview with KB Wheelock

KB Wheelock's stopped by today. She is busy writing her next masterpiece but she was kind enough to give us a little of her time to tell us about being a writer. So let us get to it.

Gina: Why did you become an author?
Kirsten: I have always enjoyed writing and felt that I expressed myself better on paper. But I never thought that the stories in my head were worth writing until I was encouraged by some authors to try writing.

Gina: What genre of books do you like to write?
Kirsten: Paranormal, Fantasy and Space Opera

Gina: What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing?
Kirsten: Twisted Kiss Series started as role reversal but when I started writing it, I decided I also wanted a 1940’s feel to it. I love the vintage clothes and history (well not the wars).

Gina: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Kirsten: A definite pantser though I am trying to teach myself to plot.

Gina: Do you have any quirks or habits when your writing?
Kirsten: other than I procrastinate like mad on facebook

Gina: Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself?
Kirsten: Marketing. It is sooo hard.

Gina: What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer?
Kirsten: Do it. You don’t know what you can accomplish till you try. The only story not worth reading is the one that is never written.

Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author?
Kirsten: Listen to your heart and stay true to yourself.

Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future?
Kirsten: To enjoy what I am writing and not stress over it. Yes, I would love to have the next Harry Potter type success, but what really matters is that I enjoy what I am doing. Oh and maybe to try to be more consistent with my time.

Gina: How do you want readers to see your work?
Kirsten: As different views. I tend to twist stories, make them span multiple genres and be a bit unexpected. I want you to come away thinking that is different.

Gina: What should a reader expect to see from your next novel?
Kirsten: Contemporary Jaded Romance. Killove Brotherhood is a contemporary reverse harem series that tells of a group who don’t believe in love, don’t believe in happily ever after. But they discover sometimes the thing you need most is that which you are not looking for.

 Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers?
Kirsten: I love hearing from you, knowing what you liked in a book, what grabbed your attention.

Gina: When will your next book be coming out?
Kirsten:  March 31st. But it is a kids book not under this name. My last romance was in Feb and is Killove.

Gina: Thank you for your interview today. Check out KB Wheelock newest book and some of her others.

Author Interview with Leeah Taylor

  Gina: Tell us a bit about yourself? 
 Leeah: I’m Leeah, a paranormal romance author and lover of all things vampires, witches and wolves. Writing has been my passion since I could remember and my *ahem* obsession for all things paranormal for just as long.
When I’m not playing master of my worlds, I’m a stay at home mommy to two perfect little devils *cough* I mean angels and wife of twenty years to an amazing man in the great Sunshine State. We also have five furry children- three cats and two dogs. 
       Gina: Have you always wanted to become an author?
Leeah: I’ve always had a very active and vivid imagination. Long before I started writing I was making up stories in my head but it never occurred to me that I wanted to be an author.
I was thirteen when I started writing short stories and fanfiction. And even later in my twenties when I began writing more original works. It wasn’t until I hit thirty that I realized I wanted to be an author and share my stories with others. Five years later I’m finally living that dream. 
Gina: What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Leeah: I’ve always had a love for Paranormal Romance. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Interview with the Vampire both set a fire in me to love all things vampires.
But I found, more recently, what I wanted to read wasn’t out there. Or at least I wasn’t finding it. So with my love for the angsty love stories in The Vampire Diaries and sexier, darker storylines of The Originals, and a set of characters that needed a story- I finally started writing the Kings of Sterling.

Gina: What are you working on now?
Leeah: Kings of Sterling is my only project right now, though I have several waiting quite impatiently for me to finish. It began as one book, one love story. The now book two in the series was originally the first nd only bookd. But the deeper I went the more it exploded into an entire world, cast of characters, and a story I never saw coming.
As I mentioned above I have a love for The Vampire Diaries but really I didn’t even start watching it until I saw The Originals. The bond of family in that TV series paired with the rich history of New Orleans fueled my world building. I wanted to write the same family bond and even more, a bond beyond blood set in a fictional small town of Georgia rich with it’s own history and backstory.
Kings of Sterling isn’t just love stories but a story about a family the lengths they’ll go not to only protect each other but the town they love and hold dear. And with plenty of twists, turns and OMG moments along the way.
The series is planned to be 10 books long not including companion books and spin off series.

Gina: Do you have any quirks while working?
Leeah: While writing? Not really though my characters do “talk” to me and their temperament will decide how much work I can get done. It also makes for some interesting discoveries along the way too.

Gina: What are your hopes for the future?
Leeah: Short term, I hope to get the majority of Kings of Sterling published this year, so far I’m half way there. But long term I’d like to make this into a career while doing what I love. I know the road ahead of  me is long and will take a lot of work but I’m ready to do it.

Gina: Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Leeah: Find your tribe. It makes all the difference when you surround yourself with fellow writers to cheer you on and mentor you.  The best decision I made was joining a small critique group of ladies in my genre and while our group isn’t very active now, I became amazing friends with one of them and we are like cheerleaders for each other. She makes a huge difference in not only writing  but everyday life. So, find that tribe. It’s out there.

Gina: Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Leeah: I have met so many great people along the way so far. Many of them readers that still, even today, blow my mind when they talk about my books. I think sometimes I’m still in this surreal state about it. But I can’t be more grateful, and truly blessed, to have found a great group of followers and readers! 
Gina: Thank you for joining us today, Leeah for this short interview. I know you are very busy with your upcoming release and I am so happy you took a moment to sit down with me. 
Leeah: Thank you, it a pleasure.
Blood of Night
See Now!

New Author, New Book, New Review!

Capture the Crown: Rise of the Deema


 A new authors first release is always flawed. I don't think there is one out there who has ever been completely content with their first. I see this new author doing as many of us do and work on this again in the future. But let us get to the review.
There are many types of characters in this book. Many planets and worlds that can be discovered in this series. It takes a real creative mind to come up with the elements in this book and I think this book has huge potential. I see errors in the editing process that can make things less clearer for a reader but if worked on it can be so much more. A little bit of configuring in some parts but I think the plot of the story was still very strong. It was unique and captures the imagination.
Katie is a young woman who has just graduated from college. The Deema, Charles, is her secret love interest who she finally meets again. He was friends with her parents and has been looking over her for years but he hasn't seen her since growing up and when he does he is blown away. But he is the queen's consort and she is not going to give him up easy. I think this book might have focus a little too much on the queen and could have paid a little more attention to the love story.
Although this book has sexual content including masturbation, it does not go into any graphic scenes with sex. If you are looking for steam this book might not be right for you. Although it doesn't play into those roles it does have what I consider some graphic language. I think it would have played better with the two main characters coming together in the end. Just because of the language and masturbation I think the reader would like that in the end.
Overall, I would like to give this story another try. I give it four stars because of the plot and world-building but it does need work with editing. Still, I think it is a great start for a new author.
