Prowlers & Growlers Boxed Set Author Spotlight: Smolder by K.C. Stewart @kcstewartwrites #99cent #shifters #pnrromance @wolfpackreads
Silas found the little red head’s antics cute. Someone wanted him dead, but that was nothing new. The dragon was one of the most hated of his kind. He couldn’t help it everyone else was too scared to take what they really wanted, no matter the consequences. So they had hired the half-breed to send him to an early grave, but something was getting in the way of her pulling the trigger. Silas knew he pissed her off just as much as he heated her up. Next time he got her alone, he was going to investigate both.
Charley wanted this job to be over. The target was a smug, arrogant dragon with a great butt. Silas had leverage over the red-headed halfling who was trying to kill him. He’d give her what she wanted but only after he had her for a night, or three.
but she pissed him off and proved him wrong. The man would be sending out his guys to bring her back. Luckily, she had a few holes in the city and was packing up the essentials to move.
involved with the whys of the situation just the who’s and how’s. As in, who did they want dead and how did they want it done. But sometimes, and right now was a perfect example, she really wished she could kill the people who hired her instead of the targets, the world would have one less asshole. But then she wouldn’t get paid and Charley really liked to get paid. Although in this case, the money was not nearly as tempting as putting a hole in Mr. Copenhagen’s chest. Silas held a card in his hand that intrigued her, and he knew it too.
in, didn’t mean they wouldn’t pay you to kill someone they hated more. She had a pretty good life for herself. Then that fucking green dragon had to come knocking.
kept track of those things. He just broke in to see who she was. This led her to believe he was either stupid and stumbled into the wrong apartment--which considering he is known as one of the most ruthless men in his species, she
didn’t think stupid was a very good description--or he must have known her from somewhere else. Charley doubted he was trying to hire her. He had his own men for that shit. That meant he had to know her sperm donor.
millions of tiny twinkling lights of the small dance floor. Then again considering she was one of three women here the options were limited. His sister made a beautiful bride, even more so when she smiled like she was. Her surprise mating to Dacea had gone as planned and Silas had to admit, he was happy for it. He had grown tired of their back and forth love battles and arguments. Had they not done this today, he would have kidnapped them both and
officiated them himself while they were bound and gagged.
makes me happy.”
doing the same now but during his last check in, they hadn’t found any way out either.
well with others,” as Hailey put it. He would enjoy seeing the faces of everyone when he did show up, especially those at his table.
The poor souls won’t know what hit them.
wait to get this interview going. *rubs hands together* So bring on the
questions. Easy ones, hard ones, whatever you want to know I’d be happy to
dashboard to see when my first book was published. March 2014 I published my
first book. Last month I published my eleventh.
I got into writing when a friend of mine started to write
fanfiction/role playing. That was *counts fingers* seven years ago. The friend
didn’t stick but the writing did. I left the fanfiction behind and began
writing flash fiction and short stories.
semi-good guy from my Hailey Holloway Series. Silas needed his own HEA but he
couldn’t have just anyone. She had to be tough as shit with a don’t give a fuck
attitude. Charley was actually one of my characters I wrote as back in my early
days. I adapted a lot of her flash fiction stories to work for Swelter.
job” is a photographer at a portrait studio. I went to school for photography
and although I like it, I don’t love it. Photography is a great hobby, it’s
just hard to make money in it when you don’t eat, sleep, breathe it. So a few
years ago I decided that it was time for a change. I began taking classes
online for Library Science. I am about a year away from getting my bachelors
and plan to continue on to get my masters and be a bona fide librarian. Right
around the time I started school, I was publishing my first book. I had a lot
of big changes all at once, which was good. It pushed me out of my comfort zone
and into the world I live in now.
my boyfriend, two german shepherds and cats in a house we bought last year.
He’s a police officer and works strange hours but that gives me time to do
homework and write. We have been together for 5 years and I am impatiently
waiting for the day he proposes. (I can say this because I know he won’t read
be reading this interview.)
Those emails from readers telling you how much they enjoyed your book. As for
the worst, I’d have to say the ever changing publishing world. Once I get the
hang of something it changes. It’s a never ending cycle.
Inspiration hits at all times and from the most random of things. I once wrote
an entire detailed outline in 10 minutes between appointments at work for a
novel that had nothing to do with anything I was currently working on. My
previous appointment had said something that just clicked with me. I still have
the scribbly pages with margin notes and arrows galore waiting for the day I
put it into action.
librarian-in-training, I scoff at the thought of research. Getting lost in the
rabbit hole of databases and Boolean phrases is just another Thursday night to
me. I tend to research as I write. I’ll stop mid-sentence and run off to search
a particular tree native to the area for an hour before coming back and
finishing off the line.
of author would you categorize yourself as, a plotter (one who plots the story
from beginning to end), or a pantser (one who lets the story take shape without
plotter all the way. I tried pantsing it for my first book and I hit so many
road blocks it was frustrating. I work best by outlining my book, usually in
one sitting and scribbled on the back of whatever paper I can find at the most
inconvenient time and place because that’s how my mind rolls. I then type it up
so it’s legible and tend to add a lot to it then. My outlines are pretty
detailed but yet leave a lot of room to play. They also have a lot of dialog in
them. Usually, I’m also in the middle of writing something else and probably
have three or four other books already outlined waiting to be typed up or
learned fast in my first year of being published to keep a thick skin and take
reviews with a grain of salt. Not everyone is going to like your plot or
writing style but those who do are loyal and wonderful and make it all worth
of wolves trying to fight for their secrecy. There are a group of their kind
called Canidae who think the wolf should rule more than the human and want to
stop hiding from the world. The first book, Too Far gone, introduces the pack
but follows the enforcer who had gone feral after a tragic accident. He is
found by a woman who was new to town and kind of adopts this wolf who liked to
hang around. In a twist of fate, she is attacked by one of these Canidae wolves
and extreme measures are taken to save her life. Each story in the series has a
HEA and no cliffhangers. (I HATE cliffhangers.)
contemporary romance. Just released my first rockstar romance book, Chance
(Rusted and Reckless).
like readers to know what would it be?
think I shared a few things above that are good to know about me. I guess I’ll
add that I am a nerd and love to talk to other nerds. In fact, I am Head Nerd
of my group of friends and even have a Nerd Card, which I carry with me in my
nice chatting with you! I am thrilled to be part of the Prowlers and Growlers
set and can’t wait to read all the stories.
Fairytales, and more!
