On The Fiery Pages Of A Book
Another brave soul has stepped up to the plate to answer Ten Burning Questions from your good ol’ pal, Ken from Ken’s Alternate Universe. This time around, author K.D. Wood (who I got to meet at Southern Geek Fest earlier this year) dares to reveal deep secrets and unimaginable truths that will surely set your heart aflame!
So you’re probably wondering why I’m wasting so much time blabbering, right?!?!?!? Let’s get on with it!
1. I see that you are an author. What types of books and stories do you write?
I love all things paranormal. Strange creatures, mythological beings, ghosts, beasties, you name it, I love them! Presently, I have a paranormal romance series (Unwilling, Unloved, Unboundless), an adult paranormal romance anthology (Frost A Rendezvous Collection), and contemporary erotic romance novella (Boys of Fall) available.
2. How long have you been an author?
My debut novel, Unwilling, was published in November 2014 by Blue Tulip Publishing.
3. Who is your favorite author and why?
Yikes, super hard one. I love different authors and their work all for different reasons. Carolyn Haines, because her mysteries are perfection, I never can guess who did it! She can scare the hell out of me with her horrors, and I don’t scare easy! Karen Stivali because she was the first contemporary romance I completely enjoyed and boy can she write the hell out of some romance. Tiffany Reisz because she writes some of the most raw, character driven stories out there. As you can see, I can’t pick just one!
4. Who would you rather listen to, Justin Bieber or Queen?
Hands down, Queen.
5. Do you collect anything nerdy?
Sadly, I don’t collect anything but books and pens. There’s all that dusting to think about.
6. Who has better hair, Superman, Wonder Woman, or Wolverine?
Pfffft! I have the best hair.
7. If you could choose any literary world to live in, (real or fictional), which world would it be? Why?
No question, Middle Earth.
#1 second breakfast is a real thing
#2 Hobbit Holes for houses
#3 Aragorn and Legolas are there
8. Are there any writers, singers, actors, or political figures that you would like to meet? If so, please name at least one of them and why?
I’ve been VERY lucky to have met a lot of my author heroes already. Several I can even call friends. I’ve been so blessed to have had those moments and I treasure them. But someone I’d love to have a cup of coffee with is Libba Bray. I was introduced to her work with, Going Bovine. It’s one of those reads that truly changes you. And OMG is she funny! I’d love to just have an hour to chat with her.
9. Rex, Kirk, Solo, or Picard? Who is the best captain?
Best? Not sure on that one. But I grew up on Kirk and fell head over heels for Picard as a teen. Still love them both like crazy!
10. Where do you draw inspiration from for your books?
I really enjoy writing dialogue, it’s one of my favorite parts of all my books. So much that every book I write begins with nothing more than the characters talking. One of my earliest drafts was straight dialogue, no scene descriptions, just conversations. So my first inspirations are always the characters themselves. Then I love to research different places, mythology, how to kill someone using a paperclip, you know the usual stuff necessary to flesh out the story. Lots of times I’ll get some inspiration during the research too.
Super, mega, happy bonus question: Do you have a webpage, social media page, blog, etc. that you’d like to share with my readers? If so, let’s hear about them!
Absolutely! And thank you for having me on your blog! You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Wattpad, Amazon, Bookbub, a fan page created for my books on FB “Love Stories Over Coffee with KD”, and Every Indie USA LLC’s page. (click on the links to learn more about K.D. and show her some support by sharing and/or purchasing her work!)
Well, there you have it. K.D. Wood gives us her honest and brutal answers. Thanks for holding nothing back, K.D., and hopefully we will run into each other at another convention soon!
As always, thanks to everyone for reading and keeping up with my blog. I’ll be having another round of Ten Burning Questions in the very near future and I’ll also be giving my opinion on that Star Trek Beyond flick that was released a couple of weeks ago. I hope to see you all very soon!
