Recently, I had the opportunity to visit with author Kate Hill about her career as a writer
and her newest e-book, Blood and Soul 1 Vampire Master. First of all, I want to thank
you Kate for taking time out of your busy writing schedule to answer a few questions for
How long did it take you to get your first book published?
It took about twelve years to get my first book published.
How did you feel the day your book was released?
I was very happy about it.
Do you have a strict writing schedule?
I write full time, seven days a week.
Do you usually outline your stories before you write them?
I always like to develop a loose outline before writing a book. I like to have the major plot
points worked out ahead of time, but I don’t like to work with such a detailed outline that
if new ideas come up during the writing process, I won’t be able to use them.
Have you always wanted to write romance?
Always. Even if a story isn’t a strict romance, I like to have romance somewhere in it.
What are some of your hobbies?
I enjoy exercising, especially martial arts practice and dancing. I also love to read. Writing is also a hobby, because when I’m not working on something that I plan to submit for publication, I like to make up stories for myself just for fun.
Are you working on any writing projects right now?
I’m nearly finished with an erotic romance about a demon who gets a chance for redemption. I’m also working on outlines for a new vampire story and a futuristic romance.
How can your readers contact you?
Have you ever had writers block?
I can’t really say I have ever had complete writer’s block because I’m able to write something just about every day. Even if it’s not the project I “should” be working on, I like to write something to keep the flow going.
What is your web site address?
My web address is http://www.kate-hill.com
Who are your favorite authors?
There are so many writers I could name, but the ones who immediately come to mind are Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Charlotte Boyett-Compo, Sahara Kelly, Audrey Godwin, and Alexandre Dumas.
How long have you been writing?
I honestly can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing or creating stories. It has been a very long time.
Can you tell us about your story Blood and Soul I?
Blood and Soul 1: Vampire Master is the first book in my new vampire series with Changeling Press. It is about a vampire called Mel who is a very strong, modern female and Zigor, a powerful, ancient alpha male. Mel has never been able to find a man who could tame her, but Zigor turns out to be just the vamp to do it.
Do you write under any other names?
No. All my novels and novellas are written under the name Kate Hill.
What is the next book you have coming out?
The next book that will be coming out is Blood and Soul 2: Vampire Crusader. I don’t have a release date for it yet, but it will probably be sometime this year.
Who is YOUR favorite male in your stories?
That’s a hard question because I’ve felt close to so many of my heroes. Most recently, I’ve gotten attached to Woodrow from the story Vampire Guardian, which I just completed.
Do you have any thing to add or say to our readers?
I would just like to thank them for reading this interview and thank Coffee Time Romance for interviewing me. Also thanks so much to the people who have read my work.
