Welcome, today we are talking with Kaitlynzq! I would like to thank you for taking time out of your busy writing schedule to answer a few questions. First, I think it’s important for readers to get a little insight on an author that they don’t necessarily get from your professional bio. You’d be surprised at what readers connect to, and sometimes the simplest ‘I can relate to that’ grabs their interest where nothing else can.
Can you share a little something about Kaitlynzq that’s not mentioned in your bio on your website?
I love the warmth of the sun and the blanket of the night sky. I love soft, gentle colors that includes the ones in the light spectrum and within the deep realms. I love the way instrumental music holds feelings, and carries them within their sound waves.
What is your favorite:
Animal – Snow Leopard and their intense depth of their eyes; horses and their elegant way; bigfin reef squid and its beautiful way of bioluminescence in the sea, a hummingbird’s dance, and my list goes on and on. Food – Two of my favorite fruits are plums & pluots. They hold a delicious sweetness. Actor – Singer – Author –
Regarding actors, singers, and authors, there are so many creative people that bring to life what is in a story, and provide me with beautiful, touching experiences.
What are your pet peeves?
My answer here depends on the adjectives of my mood in any given moment.
Who is your hero?
I admire many people. People are so unique that a hero is hard for me to define.
Give us one thing on your bucket list.
I prefer to have a living dream list, and this includes that I really want to go to New Zealand one day.
What would readers find surprising about you?
I’m not sure if they would find this surprising…I cry a lot. Tears flow easily from inside of me. Tears that hold every feeling in the emotions’ color spectrum.
Now that our readers know a little bit more about Kaitlynzq, let’s get down to the business of your audio book, Legend of Song de Light. How long did it take you from beginning to end before your novel was completely finished, and how did you decide on the topic and title?
In the night time depth’s of my heart I heard the title, and the idea for Legend of Song de Light was a continual prompt from my heart, something told me to begin, and the story revealed itself the more I wrote. Once I started putting pen to paper, it took about a year and a half to write, and create the audio book.
Please tell us a little bit about Legend of Song de Light audio book.
The stories within Legend of Song de Light connect, unfold, interweave many character’s stories needs, feelings, desires, dreams. One of the characters that I hold in a special way within my heart is Wijsvye whose birthday is August 11th. He’s a natural born leader with an architect’s beautiful ability to create the most welcoming of spaces that draw you inside, and you always want to stay in.
And, with his romantic heart Wijsvye continues as the other main characters do in this story
their threads as two crescent moons
connected under the firelights
that layer the chords, and form the lyrics
all of you entered my world as dawn’s awakening sky of soft palette
my garnet heart melted in iridescence to bloom in sun’s rays
glow in night’s depth as the stars echo the rhythm of my heart
my insides sigh and expand in delight
harmonious blend as our lives
circle the melody
A melody that includes for Wijsvye his favorite sound of the cello and banjo together, and color combination of moonlight pearl and yellow-gold.

Legend of Song de Light audio book is recorded in my voice with a blend of music like a heart’s wave. A wave’s sound that pulses rhythmic tones from the depths within a person’s feelings.
An audio book that is included in the series of interconnected stories Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu. A series of interior connections of lovecontu with feather light whispers of love, sonic palettes of radiant-ambient colors, and songs from within of continuance.
What was your hardest challenge writing this book?
I get tangled in my doubts, and it can be a painful experience to work through and continue.
Do you only do audio books?
I also do audio plays adapted from the audio books, and layered into pdf files like a heart’s song; audio poems that are multiple poems designed to connect to form a story as a heart’s breath; and audio sets that are sets of these interconnected stories with elements from each story that interweave in one another as heart’s wave, heart’s song, heart’s breath.
How difficult is it being the narrator of your own books?
It is both difficult, and wonderful. Sometimes it is difficult, because of my own emotion-filled tears that want to stream about a moment in the story. And, as the narrator, there is that fine balance needed to allow the emotions within my voice, and maintain a steadiness so that the words of the character can be heard. I often need tissue breaks.
Mostly, it is wonderful to be the narrator of my stories, because I get to add elements into how the stories are recorded such as, music.
Where can readers find them?
I self-publish, and sell all of my books on my book boutique.
Any other works in progress?
The next series of interconnected stories that I’m working on is Tru’adreyam Whispers Tru’adreyam that includes,
Water Whispers audio poem Tru’adreyam Chocolate Box audio book Tru’adreyam Chocolate Box audio play Tru’adreyam Whispers Tru’adreyam audio set
An excerpt from Water Whispers audio poem…
a natural chord’s expression
in the quiet
held in focus
a night’s stretch
into sky’s light
of light in
a spider web’s glisten
light touch a morning
sky’s first light
Water Whispers audio poem will be published by October 2019, and I expect to have the entire series published sometime in 2020.
Any advice for aspiring authors?
As mentioned in an earlier question, my own doubts are my biggest challenge. So, I may be writing this here today more so for myself, but all I can say is to breathe, and keep going, your artistry is needed.

My fictional stories are written from the inside view

a blend of
delicate feather ripples of heart waves
needs, feelings, dreams, desires

circles, weaves to caress
a sonic sea of heart’s breath
