Kathryn Caskie Parker is here to gives us all of the details on her up-coming release plus give us tips and tricks of the writing world. She even has some goodies to give away!!!
Welcome Kathryn, So glad that you joined us here today. They live for scandal and delight in disgrace until their father finally decrees that they must reform or be cast out to the pavers with a penny to their name. Propriety has never come easily for the seven, but now they have no choice, and so they head off to London, where no one knows of their past deeds, to seek the respectability their father demands.
But once she is there, her loneliness and sadness overwhelm her and she takes refuge from the festivities in a dark library. Before long a gentleman enters and, in the darkness, mistakes her for someone else. No one will know. She flees the room and disappears in the crowd just as the Duke of Exeter is announced.
She knows if her father learns of her indiscretion she will be disinherited with the Duke of Exeter and so she escapes for Bath, where she accepts a position of instructress of deportment at an exclusive school for girls. Sebastian Beaufort, the new Duke of Exeter, believes he has taken advantage of an innocent Society miss.
He knows he must find her, marry her if that is what it will take to right his wrong. I read everything. I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie!
What is your favorite thing about writing romance? Because I write by the seat of pants yes, I am a true blue pantser , I never know what each day will bring—except, eventually, a happily ever after. What makes your voice different from others? If you had to pick a favorite character that you have created or one that you wish you had created who would it be and why? Reader told me they loved seeing dotty twins again.
A character I wish I had created Well, my husband recently started working from home, so I gave up my office his phone voice is booming and retreated to the dining room on the other side of the house to write. There are no distractions there, like in my office, just silverware, china, etc. I know so many authors who write at Starbucks.
Within minutes, I find myself eavesdropping on anyone chatting nearby and then coming up with fictional, very adventurous lives for them. I really wish I was a plotter. Recently, I have taken a baby step toward traditional plotting. Before starting a book I normally just plunge right into the writing I do my best to identify the Inciting Incident, the Turning Points, the Black Moment, the Climax and the Resolution.
Then, I let the story percolate in my mind. Have I sufficiently confused everyone? What steps did you take to make your dreams come true? I read every book I could on business and the craft. I joined RWA and my local chapter. I got involved. I met as many agents and editors as I could. I joined a critique group, and at the urging of one of my CPs, finished my novel in time to enter the Golden Heart. I was lucky enough to win. Do you have any advice about finding an agent or getting published?
First, make sure your book is the best it can be. So many would-be authors type The End and immediately send the books to every editor and agent they can think of.
Big mistake. You may only get one bite at the apple so do your homework. Pay attention to which houses publish the sort of book you have written. Take a look at the dedication pages of books similar to yours. Many authors thank their editor and agent there.
These are the people who might like your book. Search the web for interviews these people may have given. In short, be sure that when you send you manuscript to agent at a literary agency, or an editor at a publishing house, you are sending it to the right one.
In short, do your homework then target the right agent or editor for your book. It will really improve you chances of realizing your dream of seeing your book in print.
