MM MARCH MADNESS!!
Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.
Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3
Today is devoted to Amanda Kay
I am a Paranormal/Fantasy Adult Romance Author (M/F Romance and F/F Romance) I’m thirty years old. I am a Navy Wife and a mother of two. I am a Florida girl at heart, but since getting married I have lived in Washington, South Carolina, and our latest move Connecticut. I hold a B.A. in Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Writing is something I love and since I am blessed to be a stay at home mom I thought I would try my hand at getting the stories in my head out and see how far I could go. I tried a few years ago to go through a Literary Agency, but it went nowhere. The self-publishing market was just starting to get hot so I self-published two books mainly for family and friends. I then discovered the world of New Adult. I wanted to stick with my paranormal roots and began thinking up story ideas that took on not only a paranormal element, but a fantasy element as well. So, that is me in a nutshell. I am a little crazy and simple and I love my life and my family.
Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.
I spent six in Italy when I was in college studying in Florence.
There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?
I love series, but I also love standalone books. What I am aiming to do is write a series and then a standalone and then a series and so on. I want to break things up, but I will not publish a book in between publishing series’ books. I want my readers to get the whole series first.
Where do you do most of your writing?
My phone or on my computer at my desk.
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?
I just finished Heart and Soul by Nicole Williams and Fuck Buddy by SD Hildreth. I loved them both. Nicole’s book was part of a series I loved and I enjoyed the final chapter of it. SD’s book well how can you not buy a book with that title?
Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?
I hope it’s growing. I hope to contribute to making F/F and F/F/M more mainstream I believe M/M has found it’s steam and I think that’s amazing, but now it’s time to flip the coin.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?
I can write in first person and I’m actually pretty decent.
What are you working on now?
I am working on book 2 in my Wind Trilogy which is the M/F book in the series. I am also working on my first F/F/M Standalone titled Ocean’s Heart.
What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
Write or play Blade and Soul with my husband
Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?
The lowest probably was a recent review that was 2 stars. It was also the high as well. The way the review was written got me thinking about my writing and my process and I realized i wasn’t giving the readers the best of me. The 2 star stung, like I think any low review does, but it was written in a way that changed how approached my stories.
