Where can I find your books? Right now, I mostly distribute to online retailers. So any Amazon store, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, Smashwords, Scrib, and Page Foundry. I’m always working to add more retailers, so please keep checking my books’ pages for updated links.
What formats are your books available in? Currently eBook only, but I do have plans to expand into paperback by the end of the year.
I’m curious about your books. Where can I go to read excerpts? Each book’s page has a long excerpt (usually the first chapter). I also have two free series starters, Fever and Carnal, so there’s no harm in downloading it to find out if my writing style is for you. =)
Who makes your covers? I make my own short story covers using Photoshop CS6 and a Wacom tablet. All of my images are licensed through Shutterstock.com. For my meatier books, I outsource to the crazy talented team at Deranged Doctor Design. I can’t say enough good things about them. Kitten is my primary designer there for this pen name. To see a list of designers I recommend, visit my Author Resources Page.
How long have you been writing? Ever since I can remember. Some of the first things I learned to do were draw pictures and write stories. I didn’t start writing professionally until about seven years ago.
How can I find out about new releases? Sorry, but as of September 24th, 2017, I will no longer be publishing any new works in this pen name or the romance genre, period. See the announcement here.
Did you always want to be a writer? I honestly thought I’d end up as an artist, then one day stories started pouring into my head, demanding to be written. Nearly seven years later, here I am. =)
What genres do you write in? I consider myself primarily a romantic suspense author, though I tend to stick with paranormal romance and my stories lean toward more erotic romance than sweet. I do have plans for some sexy contemporary stories in the future, as well as some tamer yet no less thrilling NA books. Far-off genres I’d love to try are Sci-fi and Epic Fantasy, maybe even Dystopian. I love to read a lot of genres, and I’d love to write in a lot of them!
What’s the recommended age range for your work? If it’s geared toward adults, definitely 18 and up. In general, that’s a good rule with me, unless stated otherwise. Most of my romance has open-door sex scenes, fantasy violence, and some swearing.
Do you have a degree in creative writing? No. I have a degree, but it’s not in writing. It’s in a totally unrelated field. Everything I’ve learned has been self-taught through a lot of critique groups, many hours of practice, and more hours of studying the craft through reference books than I can count. In my opinion, you don’t need a fancy degree to be a good writer. You just need patience, persistence, and lots and lots of practice.
Why can’t you write faster? I’m trying! Really I am. I also don’t hide the fact I work a 45+ hours a week day job that sucks up a lot of time. =D Then my husband needs attention, too. 😉
Will you read/give advice/doctor my book/screen play, synopsis, etc? I’m really flattered you asked, but seeing as I have precious little time for my own work, I unfortunately have to decline. There are plenty of great critique groups out there who will be more than willing to help. You can also check out my For Writers page.
