#AuthorSpotlight – K.I. Lynn

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

I’m Cat (K.I. Lynn) and I’m a homebody who lives with her hubby and her dog dog Juno (my sidekick). I love cheese and the color aqua.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

Right now I am attempting my first ever intended series (the two I have were “hey, this is getting waaaay too long for one book) and I will say, possibly the first book. Because you have to introduce in a natural way characters that come into play later on (especially because it’s a family saga series) and you have to know who those characters are. I’m having to guess how a character is going to come out in their own book, which may not be written for almost two more years!

What comes first? The plot or characters?

The plot. I’ll get a rough idea with a base character vibe, but it always inevitably changes as I write.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Stephenie Meyer

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

Naming the book. I tend to write my blurbs when I get hit with the initial idea, because that is when I have the least information and don’t get bogged down. Naming a book is just…it either happens right away (Forever and All the Afters) or it’s like pulling teeth (Becoming Mrs Lockwood).

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Meeting my bestie, Elena M Reyes. Without writing we never would have met.

What is your definition of success?

There are multiple definitions of success I’ve hit over the years, and others that I haven’t. It goes up and morphs as I go. In the beginning it was selling 1,000 copies of Breach. Then 10,000 copies of Breach. Then 100,000 books overall. Getting in the top 100 on Amazon. Translated into other languages (Italian, German, Hebrew). It’s always changing. Right now? I want to be able to build up a down payment on a new house. I want Off the Cuff to hit the top 100 on release week in January.
