Hello, my name is Kathryn Lively and I’m happy to be blogging with Coffee Time Romance as an author. I’ve read CTR review for many years, and at one point (many many years ago) I wrote a few, but I’m thrilled to be here as a writer talking about my work. I have written mysteries and thrillers, and more recently have ventured into contemporary romance. If you’re looking for stories set in the world of entertainment and geekdom, I have what you need. 😉
This summer my first contemporary with Totally Bound, FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, was released in eBook and print. Set in Hollywood, it’s about two former child stars (and sweethearts) given a second chance in love and in the business.
I got the idea following a call from another publisher looking for roms featuring rich and famous heroes. By the time I finished the book, though, the call had expired so I shopped around and signed with TB. I adore the cover, and just recently I finished the first draft of the follow-up, to be called DRIVE ME WILD. In the 2017 I begin the final book of the trilogy, and I’m still working on a title.
More recently, I released GEEK MEETS GIRL, a rom-com set at a SFF convention. A Doctor Who fan clashes with a Trekker, but everybody eventually rides off into the galaxy. This story had originally been slated to come out through a publisher, but when the house closed I decided to try self-publishing.
Sometime next year, I’ll have a third contemporary romance out – this time with Decadent Publishing. IF YOU WANT IT features a plus-size heroine and a retired athlete – a former BMOC who crushed on the girl in high school and hopes to make things right. I can’t go into detail just yet, but it’s small town set (my favorite of the contemporaries) and may have a follow up if things go well.
Beyond that…who knows? I read just about anything, and would write other genres if time allows. I’m tempted to try historical fiction next.
If you’d like to chat about books, I’m always looking for recs. You can tweet me at @MsKathrynLively. Have a great week!
