Q&A Interview and Contest with Kate Douglas

Kate Douglas Interview Intro:
Hello everyone!  Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are very excited to welcome Kate Douglas to our sites today! 
 
Kate has a great bio of herself on her blog so we borrowed it and posted it below so you can learn more about her.
All About Kate:
since you've come this far....
...the least I can do is tell you a little bit about myself. I am a writer. I think I've always been a writer. It's woven into my fabric in some inescapable manner so that it defines everything I think or do. I'm also a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a fairly decent photographer and a pretty good cook...over the course of my sixty-plus years I've been a student, a florist, a bookkeeper, a newspaper reporter, a cartoonist, a hostess in a winery tasting room (now THAT'S the place to find stories!) and a teacher~~but first and foremost, I am a writer...though I must admit, Gramma--or Dabba, as I'm called--is a close second!
I have an interview up at ARomanceReview.com if you're at all interested in some of the details of the writing life. I enjoy doing interviews as they make me actually think about why I do what I do...and why I enjoy it so much!
My husband and I have left the northern California wine country for the peaceful mountains of Lake County. We live in the beautiful little community of Cobb, which is a great place to retire...except I can't imagine not writing, so retirement isn't something I'm planning on at all. My husband, however, has taken to his newly unemployed state with great glee...and I'm loving the fact he's doing some of the cooking for a change!
Our son and daughter are grown and on their own--thanks to our daughter and son-in-law we're grandparents to two absolutely perfect grandsons and a granddaughter who is in constant motion. Our son is married to the lovely young woman he's got his arms wrapped around on the cover of Cowboy in My Pocket--we're glad he was smart enough not to let go of her! Their daughter, Ella, son Owen and brand-new daughter Alice are just as perfect as the others, so our family continues to grow in the most wonderful way.
Other than our little "tree incident" as I'm calling it, life would be pretty carefree for us, but Doug and I once made the foolish mistake of saying, out loud, how much we enjoyed our freedom. That's about the time Rufus tumbled into our lives, a furry little castaway who, in a very short time, has achieved complete dominion over our household.
He's a fairly benign despot, but we’ve acknowledged we no longer live in a democracy.
I don't do the cycling photography I used to and the webpage of cycling photos is currently inactive. My link with the cycling community is through the website I maintain for our son's friend, Ross Dillon, who is recovering from a very serious brain injury. He was hit by a car while riding his bike and remained in a coma for many weeks. He still has a long way to go, but his courage and the courage and dedication of his family and friends are a constant inspiration to all of us.
As far as my professional life, writing consumes me now, something I always wanted. It was time to get my creative priorities in order. With twelve novels and ten novellas released through Kensington's Aphrodisia line as well as four books (counting CrystalFire, the final book in the DemonSlayers series) and one novella with Kensington’s Zebra imprint, and two more manuscripts completed for the Aphrodisia Dream Catchers series, I'm busier than I ever imagined doing the job I love. Please take a look at my erotic romances with first chapter excerpts of all (but only if you're over 18!) at my erotic romance website.
I love to hear from readers, or better yet, subscribe to my monthly newsletter. I run a contest each month and always have something neat to give away, either a book, an ARC (advance readers copy) or something else that's either fun or edible. (click here to subscribe!)

Kate is the creator of some incredible contemporary, paranormal and erotic romance standalone novels and series.  To check out Kate's impressive and extensive backlist click HERE.

Her WOLF TALES series just wrapped up with 12 books to the series which doesn't include all the novellas in the SEXY BEAST Anthologies.

Her DEMONSLAYERS series currently has 3 full length novels and one novella to the series.  The fourth and final book of the DEMONSLAYERS series "Crystalfire" is being released tomorrow, April 3, and we're going to help Kate promote the series today.  In case you're not familiar with the DEMONSLAYERS series, here are the synopses of all the books in the series….

DEMONSLAYERS series

"DemonFire"
DEMONSLAYERS, Book 1

Eddy is a no-nonsense reporter who leaves stories of alien races to her father and scoffs at such notions as the town statue coming to life. Until said statue attacks her home. According to the mysterious Dax, demons are crossing over to Earth, determined to disrupt the balance between it, Abyss, and Eden, and to destroy them all. Eddy and Dax know they can’t stop this catastrophe on their own, and luckily for them, alien races aren’t merely the stuff of fairy tales after all. A ragtag band of races goes forth to stop the demons, but time is running out



"HellFire"
DEMONSLAYERS, Book 2

A new, more dangerous vortex has opened in the besieged Earth and the innocent souls of animals are being invaded by the malevolent strength of a powerful demon. For Ginny Jones, there can be no greater wrong - and to make it right, she joins forces with the Lemurian, Alton, a hard-bodied hero not of her world.

Under a black moon, pitched battles for the survival of all that is good will be fought once more. The heat of their sensual passion emboldens the two warriors...but such passion may well betray them...Yet Alton is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice - life itself - for the human woman he loves. But time is fast running out...and time, like fire, devours all...


"Nocturnal"
Anthology
DEMONSLAYERS, Book 2.5


When Lemurian Guard Darius chases demons to Earth, he faces a lethal battle between good and evil. His only ally is Mari, a beautiful woman with an amazing secret--one that could cost Mari her life.










"StarFire"
DEMONSLAYERS, Book 3

The women of Lemuria are still in chains. The daughter of an enslaved warrior, brutally attacked by a vicious guard, Selyn has survived--barely. Beaten and terrified, she must overcome her fear and trust her life to the only man who can help her: Dawson Buck, one from Earth who has crossed through the portal, a gifted healer. His skills and knowledge renew her body and strengthen her spirit--and awaken a compelling passion she has never known. But she cannot yield...

Selyn seeks revenge for herself and her mother and all the Forgotten Ones who toil in secret. If Dawson helps her, his own life may be forfeit. And for Selyn, true love does not ask such sacrifices. .



"CrystalFire"
DEMONSLAYERS, Book 4

The Demon King still lives, stronger than ever, devouring souls in search of immortality. Against him stands the scholar Taron, a newly-minted warrior of Lemuria, and Willow, a woman of unearthly loveliness, born of mist…
Spellbound

Taron must pass through the waterfall of molten gold that shields the secret portal to his beloved land. His brilliant mind and the speaking sword called CrystalFire are his weapons against evil. But nothing can protect him from the power of love. Willow, whom he once knew as a sprite who could dance in his hand, has been changed by a master stroke of magic into the form of a beautiful, highly sensual woman, desiring a thousand pleasures that she insists he alone can give her.

Innocent and eager, Willow arouses his deepest needs and sexual hunger--and his love. He will risk all to save her, even if it means a battle to the death with the ultimate foe...

Excited?  We know we are!  So, let’s get to know Kate a little better and help her celebrate her newest release and the final book of the DEMONSLAYER series and find out what she has coming up next….

************************************************

Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION:  Hi Kate!  Welcome to Book Monster and LITERAL ADDICTION!  We are very honored to have you with us today!
Kate: Thank you so much for inviting me to talk about my stories. I’m so excited about this final book in the series, and I can’t wait to see what readers think of my hero and heroine—and the final outcome of the battle between good and evil.   

Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION:  We like to start out by getting to know our guest author a bit more, and then we’ll dig into the books. 
Q1): Can you tell us 3 things about yourself that we can't find out on the internet?
Kate: LOL...that might be tough. I’m pretty open with my readers and really don’t have any secrets. Between Facebook and Twitter (which I’m still trying to figure out) and my regular postings on blogs, I think all my secrets have been told!

Q2):  What are some of your favorite hobbies or things to do when you are not busy writing?
Kate: I love to hike and garden, and whenever we get the chance, my husband and I take off in our motor home for trips far and wide. Of course, living in California, we don’t have to go far at all to see some beautiful country, and the nice thing about traveling is that I often get ideas for my books on our trips. The DemonSlayers all came out of a trip to Mt. Shasta in Northern California, and the premise for the Dream Catchers series was the result of a trip to Mt. Lassen and the Allen Array at Hat Creek.


Q3):   What are 3 things that never fail to make you smile and 3 things that never fail to piss you off?

Kate: Babies, puppies and my husband—after forty years, the man still makes me laugh. As far as pissing me off? It’s probably no surprise—current politics, attacks against women and the fact that gay couples still can’t legally marry in most states. It’s dead wrong and embarrassing in country that prides itself on freedom and democracy.



Q4):  Do you like to cook?   If so, what’s your favorite dish to make?
Kate: I love to cook and actually co-authored a cookbook for a winery in Sonoma County many years ago. Hard to say what my favorites are—comfort foods like stuffed chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, or baked salmon with rice pilaf and fresh veggies. I cook something special just about every day and then we have the leftovers for lunch. Cooking is a creative thing for me, and often helps me free up my mind when I’m struggling with something in a story.

Q5)  If you could have 1 superpower, what would you want it to be and why?
Kate: Only one? You’re no fun! I think I would love to fly. I’m a serious bird watcher, and I think part of my fascination is pure jealousy!


Q6):  What are some of your favorite television shows and movies?

Kate: I don’t watch television at all and rarely see movies. We did get HUGO a while back and I enjoyed that, but most nights, if my husband is watching a movie, I’m in another room reading a book or writing.






Q7):  How many years have you been writing for?  Did you ever believe you'd be where you are now?
Kate: I’ve always loved to write. I wrote stories as a child and my first job out of college was writing radio commercials for a country-western station, but I didn’t start writing fiction seriously until the mid-1980s. And no, I never imagined the kind of success I’ve had—remember, it took me twenty years of submitting and getting rejected before I finally got that NY contract. The thing is, I’m not that big a success—not like the authors who regularly hit the NY Times or USA Today, but I’m more successful than I ever dreamed and I’m having the time of my life. It really is like living a dream. I’m very lucky to be where I am now and to still have so many characters wanting their stories told. Even luckier to have such terrific readers. It blows me away to realize there are so many who have followed me for so long, through so many books. Just amazing.

Q8):  Do you have any interesting writing quirks or something you must have with you to begin your daily writing process?
Kate: I need my laptop, my recliner, a big glass of ice water (or coffee first thing in the morning) and quiet. I wear my comfy flannel jammie bottoms and an old tank top or sweater, sit down in my recliner and let my mind flow.

Q9): What are the best and hardest parts of writing for you?

Kate: It’s all good. I love the sense of connection I have with my characters, the joy of watching a story unfold as I write. I don’t plot in advance so I never quite know what’s coming next. It’s all about the discovery. The hardest part is ending a series. It’s emotionally difficult to say good-bye to characters that have become so real to me. I went into an actual depression after I wrote the last book in Wolf Tales. I missed Anton! He was the one who followed me around and dropped hints about what was coming next. What’s fun now is that I’m working on my new series, Spirit Wild, which is about the second generation of Chanku shapeshifters, and I’m seeing Anton through Lily’s eyes. As far as she’s concerned, though she loves him dearly, he’s a pain in the ass, always trying to tell her what to do, and attempting to snoop in her thoughts. Luckily, she’s a lot more powerful wizard than her father!

Q10):  What do you feel is the most important trait for a hero and heroine to have?
Kate: I feel the most important trait for heroes and heroines—and real-life people—is honor. That inborn sense of honor and integrity that makes a person trustworthy, makes them always try to do the right thing. I see it in my husband and try to replicate that same attribute in the characters I write.



Q11):  For those who have not read the WOLF TALES series, can you please tell us what the series is about? 
Kate: Got all day? J Wolf Tales is about the emotional and physical journey of a group of shapeshifters discovering their heritage and their history as they find more and more members of their long-forgotten race. All I knew when I began writing is that they were creatures ruled by a powerful libido, that they had originated (or so they thought) on the Tibetan steppe, and that they were a matriarchal society. I had no idea what the series would be about when I started writing, so it was an evolution for me as the author as much as for my characters, but I was learning right along with them who and what the Chanku are. I didn’t discover all the answers until I wrote the final book—so much of what happened in that story came as a total surprise to me!

Q12)  Can you please give us a little information about what the DEMONSLAYER series is all about? 
Kate: This one was pure fun—my husband and I were up in the town of Mt. Shasta, wandering in and out of the cute little rock and crystal shops (Mt. Shasta is thought to be a vortex—an energy site similar to Sedona, Arizona) and reading about the Lemurians, a mythical race that supposedly lives deep inside the mountain, which is a dormant (not extinct!) volcano. Out of all the sensory input, somehow I got the vision of demon-infested garden gnomes and a battle between heaven and hell. I saw earth as the fulcrum, responsible for keeping everything in balance, and the next thing I knew there were all these characters yammering away in my head, trying to tell me what the story was all about. I had so much fun writing this series. What was really cool is that I proposed a three book series and Kensington wanted four books and a novella for the Nocturnal anthology. Adding that fourth story, which was actually StarFire and came out as the third book, totally changed the original concept I’d had. Thank goodness my editor is pretty cool with me flipping stuff around, because the stories I eventually wrote were nothing like the books I’d proposed.
But to answer your question, the premise of the series is that demons are infesting first statuary and then animals on earth as a demon tries to take control. Eddie Marks, a newspaper reporter with a fostered mutt named Bumper (a pit bull/poodle mix) ends up helping a reformed demon turned demon fighter in the battle against the demons. They enlist the aid of some Lemurians, and of course Bumper gets into the fight, especially after Dax the demon hunter’s helpful will ‘o the wisp Willow ends up taking refuge in the dog’s mind when her body gets eaten by the demon king. All the characters from the stories continue to appear throughout the series, so it’s fairly tightly connected. I always suggest that readers start with DemonFire, then HellFire, Crystal Dreams in the Nocturnal anthology, StarFire, and then CrystalFire.

Q13):  What can we expect in "CrystalFire", the final story of this series?
Kate: In CrystalFire, one of the secondary characters, a celibate scholar named Taron, ends up in the town of Evergreen expecting to meet with the other demon slayers. He’s always been fascinated by the tiny sprite Willow, and is horribly sad that she’s trapped in the dog’s mind. An attack by the demon king results in Willow getting blasted out of Bumper and ending up with a woman-sized body.
While she’s figuring out how her parts work on this much larger scale, Taron is trying to figure out how to handle a gorgeous woman who somehow pushes all the right buttons for him. And then there’s the issue with the demon king who has taken over the body of a dear friend and is intent on finally tipping the balance over to the side of evil.
Taron and Willow don’t realize the extent of the problem—fate has decreed that the two of them will be the champions for both heaven and earth—if they can’t defeat the demon king, the evil of the abyss will win and life as we know it will end. It’s a heavy load for a guy who’s falling head over heels for a gorgeous woman still learning how her parts work. And it’s not much easier on an immortal scholar who’s led a celibate life. And yes, I had way too much fun writing their story!

Q14):  You have an eBook series out called DEMON LOVERS.  Can you please tell us a little about this series?  Do you plan to write more than the three books currently in this series?
Kate: I’ve actually written the fourth—UNLEASHED—it’s in revisions right now and will be going back to the editor in a few more days and then hopefully will be up for sale in a couple of weeks, and I’ve got others planned. This series is just for fun. I love writing short—Wolf Tales began as a series of short stories, and I’m doing the same thing with Demon Lovers. In this one, a young accountant ends up being recruited as a fulcrum (back with that balance thing!) whose job is to keep a couple of demon hunters from killing each other. Since this is an erotic paranormal romance serial, Addie falls for the hunters, who, it turns out, fall for one another. Each part of the serial will follow Addie, Jett and Locan as they battle demons and other issues both on earth and in their own realm between worlds. It’s pure fantasy, really sexy, and just plain fun.

Q15): If you could spend the day with any one of your characters, who would you pick and what would you do?
Kate: It would have to be Anton. He drives me nuts, but he’s also the one who challenges me the most. I imagine I’d want to pick his brain because he fascinates me, and I’d love to know just how much of him really IS my husband! When I first began writing the stories, I saw Anton and Stefan as looking enough alike to be brothers, and after the first few stories, I realized they were both based on my spouse. Physically, my guy is tall and lean with long hair and when Anton talks, I hear my husband’s voice, but when Stefan is cracking wise, I hear him then, too.

Q16):  What has been the biggest surprise in your career?
Kate: How much fun this is! I love to write, love the interaction with my readers, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the chance to share my wild imagination with so many people who seem to get it! I think that was my biggest worry—that my stories would be a bit too “out there” for readers, but to my surprise and absolute joy, they’re right there with me. It’s wonderful.

Q17):  If you could leave readers with one legacy, what would you want it to be?
Kate: That if you have a dream, no matter how impossible it seems, never, ever give up. If I’d quit writing when the tenth or the twentieth rejection came in, I wouldn’t be where I am now. I wanted to write and I wanted that as a career. It didn’t happen until I was 55 years old (I’d been published by small press/epublishers since 1998, but my goal was NY) and I’m 62 now, but I still feel young, my ideas are still flowing, and I know that if I hadn’t stuck with it, hadn’t reached my goal, I would always feel as if something in my life was missing. Stubbornness and determination really can pay off!


Q18): What question have you always wanted to be asked in an interview but have never been asked, and how would you answer that question?

Kate: LOL...I have absolutely no idea. I think they’ve all been asked! (trust me on this...you should see some of the stuff I’ve been asked, and yes, I always answer.)





Q19):  What’s up next for Kate Douglas?  What will you be working on now that your two series have come to an end?
Kate: There are actually three series—Dream Catchers debuted in the NightShift anthology with the novella, Dream Catcher, and the first book, Dream Bound, will be out at the end of June. Dream Unchained comes out in November, and they’re both Aphrodisia titles and VERY sexy! This is the series where I got the idea from the Allen Array. I’m not sure if Kensington will want more—as always, it depends on sales. I’m also writing the first book in the Spirit Wild series, To Love a Dark Wolf. This is Lily Cheval’s story—she’s a young woman living and working in San Francisco in a world that knows the Chanku exist. So far, I’m having a great time with this one—and no, she does NOT end up with Alex. They’re really good friends, but not cut out to be bonded mates. I think readers will be surprised with the man who catches her heart. We’re talking the ultimate bad boy.

Q20):  Is there anything specific you would like to say to your readers while we have you here today?
Kate: I would love to say a very heartfelt “thank you!” I never realized how much fun my readers would be. Their emails make my day, and I’ve had a chance to get to meet so many of them on our trips around the country. I had no idea how much fun it would be to get to know so many of the men and women who read my books. They are the ones who really make this entire job work, not only because they buy my books, but also because they’ve extended such open and honest friendship. That’s something no one can put a price on.

Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION:  Thank you again Kate
for taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down and talk to us.  We would love to have you on Book Monster and LITERAL ADDICTION again in the future when you're ready to promote your next release. J
Kate: Thanks so much. I don’t really schedule my Demon Lovers stories—those just get done when I can find time, but I’ve got Dream Bound coming out the end of June and I’d love a chance to visit again. I really appreciate your help in promoting my books.
If you'd like to keep up with Kate you can visit her Website or follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Wow!! Putting all of these on my "to read" list!! Thanks!! jbonoma4ATcomcastDOTnet

Kate Douglas said...

Sorry to be so late getting here, but the first thing I do in the morning is go through email, and there's always a LOT!

I appreciate the kind words, and Tanya, what book are you reading? Now I'm curious!

Linda, I agree on the connection. If I don't feel that as a writer, you're not going to feel it when you read. I think that's why I get so attached to my characters. The way I write means I'm way inside their heads.

Sheree--I love that cover, too, and especially LOVE the original covers where that gorgeous manflank was left bare. Booksellers requested the cover up, which is why that gorgeous flank is covered in a cloud. Paul Marron is a truly beautiful man.

June, Wolf Tales 10 IS an emotional book. And trust me on this...it is NOT easy to type while crying. There were parts of that one where I was actually sobbing while trying to write, but it has such a satisfying ending that the emoting was all worthwhile.

Thanks, all. I'm writing today, so must get back at it. Will check back later.

Glittergirl said...

Hey Kate, awesome interview with lots of great inside information. I can't wait for CrystalFire to come out and get all "read up" on this series. Your stuff is just yummy :-). Can't wait to see you again at another book signing. When are you coming up north again?

Kate Douglas said...

Glittergirl, not sure what our travel schedule is this year. Have a lot of deadlines hanging out there, and the books always have to come first. Will definitely announce on my newsletter if I'm able to make a trip.

Dawn said...

Thank you Book Monster for interviewing one of my most favorite authors. Not only does she write amazing books, but she is a great person. I enjoyed the questioned you asked, even though I have been following Kate for a while now and knew the answers. She was no fibbing when she said that she is an open book to her readers. All the more reason she is great to talk with, whether in person or via email or Facebook.--Dawn

Great interview. Ive only read the first in the series so far. But really liked it.

bacchus76 at myself dot com

Kate Douglas said...

LOL...thanks, Dawn, for backing me up. I feel sort of silly doing interviews anymore because I've spilled my guts so thoroughly that there really AREN'T any secrets left. No mystery at all! To those of you who are enjoying my books, thank you! I love knowing there are people out there reading what I write. What a trip!

Need to get back to work...I'm forever behind, ya know?

KerryP said...

Kate, great interview! Really I am not stalking you, I am supporting you :) I'll be starting Demonfire soon and Nightshift. Keep writing. Oh, the guy I'd keep would be Stefan, of all of them, Matt is a close second though :)

LG aka Kerry

I want, I want, I want!!! I am a huge fan of the Demonslayers series and I can't wait to get my hands on either one, Starfire or Crystalfire. I am one book behind. Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway!

Kate Douglas said...

Kerry, stalking is okay. I give you permission! Thanks for stopping by! And yeah...Matt's not bad. Sometimes I wonder where these guys come from!

Hey Sienny! Give 'em a try, and if you like REALLY hot erotic romances, check out the Wolf Tales series. I promise you a good, hot read!

Barb? You're behind? Say it ain't so! Actually, I understand...trying to keep up with all my faves is NOT easy.
