Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hello! I’m Kitka Buchanan. I’m an author of dark paranormal romance and BDSM action/suspense books. Three books, to be exact. I’m also a mother, wife, small zoo wrangler, and a coffee addict.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
This summer, I released two books. I released a BDSM action/suspense novel called Obeying The Rules. It’s the first of a trilogy. It started off as a means to torture my best friend, but turned into so much more! I also released the sequel to my first book, Spellcasters: Chase’s Revenge. Chase’s Revenge is co-written with Kat Ries, my partner in crime.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I have to have noise in the background while I’m writing, be it music or the tv. I often write with Supernatural on, just for the noise. And I constantly have to fight with my cat, Cleo. She always wants to be on me when I’m writing, often between myself and my computer.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Everyone from Shakespeare to Jim Butcher to Claire Marta. I love their writing and their way of creating an emotion and an image in your mind.
What are you working on now?
Currently, I am working on the prequel to Spellcasters and the second Obeying The Rules book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Facebook is invaluable to any aspiring author. However, I use Bookbub, Goodreads, Instagram, Twitter, my own website and email newsletter.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Whatever you do, keep writing. It may not be your current WIP. It may not be for public eyes at all. Just write!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Keep writing and believe in yourself!
What are you reading now?
I’m in editing mode right now for a few other authors. Currently, I’m editing Stephanie Salvatore’s first book, Sausalito Nights. It’s been a pleasure to read while I’m working on it.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Obeying The Rules is being re-released with a new cover. I’m also planning for a VERY busy 2019. I’m excited.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Jim Butcher’s Storm Front, Claire Marta’s The Devil’s Plaything, Cyrano de Bergerac, and Julius Caesar by Shakespeare
