Welcome K.T. Grant
1. Tell us your latest news.
KT: I'm very excited to have straight erotic contemporary, For the Love of Mollie, released for the new epublisher, Decadent Publishing (http://www.decadentpublishing.com/) for their inaugural line up on August 1st. I also will have a Lesbian Pirate Romance (ahoy me mateys!) released by Ravenous Romance in the early fall.
2. What initially inspired you to become an author?
KT: My mother always had a dream of becoming an author. I think I have the writing gene because of her. But the moment I read Stephen King's The Stand, I wanted to write characters and stories that can really make you think and stay with you long after you finished reading
3. What is your favorite book? And Why?
KT: My favorite book is The Stand by Stephen King. The story and characters blew my mind away. Over 1000 pages of on the edge of your seat action where you will stay up all night reading until the very end, and want to back to the beginning and read it all over again. Stephen King is my author idol.
4. Do you have a particular time of day to write? We love to hear about a writer’s process.
KT: I find that I work better in the late afternoon or at night in my writing chair, surrounded by total silence or with some light jazz in the background. I have a scene in my mind and try to get it down on paper and more onto the next one until I reach my personal word count for the day.
5. What do you find to be the most difficult part of writing?
KT: The hardest part is starting a book. That blank page can be scary where you want to write the best possible first sentence.
6. Do you have a favorite author?
KT: Hands down my favorite author is Stephen King. But my other favorites are JR Ward, Meljean Brook, Gail Carriger and a debut author who just published this year, Carolyn Crane.
7. Tell us about your first published work.
KT: My first published work is a Contemporary May/December Lesbian Romance called Lovestruck. Lovestruck takes place in present day Manhattan about Barbara Jennings, a hotel mogul and her planned seduction of Jenny Caffey, a college student who is also Barbara's employee and ten years younger than her.
8. Do you have a favorite of your own works?
KT: I have a young adult murder mystery I wrote a few months ago that is very near and dear to my heart that I would love to publish. I'm in the process of shopping my manuscript around to agents in the hopes one will take me on as their client and sell it to a publisher.
9. Where can our readers find you on the web?
KT: You can find me as my author website at: http://ktgrant.com/ or my blog, Babbling About Books, and More! at http://kbgbabbles.blogspot.com/
