This week I am uber thrilled to have Decadent Kane with me. So belly up, grab some liquid noms and join me as I pick Le Brain of pure Fab! AND AND...her book "Ribbon of Darkness" is released tomorrow! I am one happy LWG!
So, what inspired you to write your first book?
You know that feeling that comes over you, the one that exhibits energy and sparkles surrounding your core making you excited and jittery and almost jump up from the pure energy of the happy running through you? That’s what inspired me. That's what always inspires me. I want everyone to feel that.Well, that and a friend actually challenged me to write a story about growing elfin ears. LOL
What were the challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) during it? Did you find yourself daunted at all?
I didn't find any part of the first book daunting. I found it liberating. I had to do a little research on elves because I needed to know when to use elfin VS elven and eflish, which of course led me to make up some of my own terms like Elfess and Elfalicious.
Do you ever find yourself torn between what YOU want for the character and what ACTUALLY ends up happening?
Every single day! Are you kidding me? My elves do some of the strangest things and here I was being all mundane and happy and suddenly they revert back, throw in a punch to the guy they might be in love with, and next thing I know I'm trying to explain her actions to the story. LOL
Do you have a particular style of writing? Organized or do you wing it?
I think everyone has a style of writing. I'm not on the outside looking in so it's hard for me to pinpoint my own style, but I do know it's there.
I'm a little of both organized and wingy *giggles*
What's currently cooking in that amazing gray matter of yours?
Currently I'm working on a private investigator elf seeking treasures in order to save a guy she's never met, Miss Rue is by far one of my more...lively characters. LOL
If you could choose any writer, who you would love to have as a mentor?
Kresley Cole- the woman writes beautifully.
Time for the "randoms" as I call them:
Fave food group? Dessert
Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne? That’s hard...Stark first Wayne later. *winks*
Celebrity Death Match...name your top two?
Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel
Historical, sci-fi or fantasy?
Of all your characters, which one is closest to YOU?
Me as a person? I honestly don't know. All of my leading ladies have a piece of me but none are the absolute closest to who I am as a person.
However if you mean which character I'm closest to as in liking, my fav character in my elves series so far is Draven. He's hot. He can get close to me any day. Giggles.
Care to share an excerpt from any of your works?
Pointed, pointy, points...on her ears!
"Holy pointedness!" She stared at herself wide-eyed in the mirror. "No, nope, no freaking way." Ribbon leaned in closer to her reflection. The ears were all in her mind, had to be. People didn't just grow elf ears one day. She swallowed the anxiety threatening to throw a temper tantrum. Keep calm, collected, like an adult.
Ribbon reached up to touch the elfin-looking appendages. She rubbed her eyes and looked again. Yup, still there. Deck the freaking halls, how would she hide those?
