It’s the Last Monday for June, and you should know what that means by now for my blog. Today, we welcome fellow Solstice Shadows author, BeBe Knight!
1. What’s the title of your latest release? Link?
My Paranormal-Suspense-Romance, An Element of Time, was released this past September. It’s Book One in my Eternal Flame Series. A vampire and a slayer walk into a bar… Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but for Veronica and Mackenzie, it’s the beginning of the rest of their lives…
2. Why do you like writing in this genre?
Trust me when I say it’s not a genre I ever saw myself writing in. I blame books like The Sookie Stackhouse Series and The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series entirely for shaping me into the vampire lovin’ freak that I am. Once I started reading ever vampire romance book I could get my hands on, I just couldn’t help but try writing my own for NaNoWriMo one year.
3. What do you like to read?
I enjoy all types of Romance. Paranormal, Historical, Westerns.
4. Favorite movie?
“Say Anything” is one of my all time favorites, hands down! But really any sappy
5. What are your writing habits? Music or silence? Daily regimen or spurts of creativity?
Complete silence for me! I use music to get the creative juices flowing, but love story with John Cusack could fit the bill. Once I start to type I need it to be alone with my thoughts. Right now I’m having a bit a dry spell for one reason or another so I’ve been listening to a lot of 90’s music to see if I can get something going.
6. What was the most surreal moment you’ve had as an author?
The day my book was released I was sandwiched between Stephen King and Charlaine Harris on Amazon’s Bestselling list. I immediately took a screen shot to remember the moment!
7. How can readers find you?
8. What do you know now about being published that you wish you’d known before submitting?
The amount of time and work that goes into promoting yourself and your book. I’m also a self conscious person and I hate putting myself out there. It’s a struggle every day to get on the computer and think of something to say without saying BUY MY BOOK.
9. Favorite snack/drink while writing?
It honestly depends on the scene. Coffee is always my go to writing accompaniment, but if I’m writing a “sexy-time” scene a glass of wine is a must.
10. Look at your writing area…what’s the item you keep to inspire you (piece of artwork,figurine)?
I don’t have any trinket that really inspires me, but I like to fall back on my many years of Soap Opera watching to help me get through certain scenes. I thank my mom every day for allowing me to watch General Hospital as a kid. When I’m stuck, I like to ask myself “What Would (Fill in the blank of a character) Do?”
