Happy Thursday to all.
We have a treat for everyone today, Kitty DuCane is here today telling us a little bit about herself and her new release, DOMINATING VICTORIA. Please join me in welcoming Kitty to Shapeshifter Seductions.
So, how long have you been writing and who are your publishers?
I wrote my first book back in 1999, but my kids were small and into dance, gymnastics, baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, golf and everything else there was to do and I made the decision to raise my kids. No regrets. I loved every second of it. Now that I’m an empty nester, I have plenty of time to write, so last year, I started writing again. I submitted my first manuscript in May and Loose Id picked it up in June.
What led you to writing?
Okay, everybody get ready to moan. I’d read books and say to myself…I can do better than this. I love suspense and I love erotic romance (the hotter the better.) And of course, I can’t get enough of shape-shifters, vampires, DEA, Special Forces and all other alpha males and I found out that I really enjoy dreaming up my own alpha guys.
What do you enjoy most?
Any writing hurdles that you were surprised by? I enjoy weaving a story. I write by the seat of my pants. The characters and the first few chapters of a new book usually bonk me in the head, but I have no clue where the plot is going. I love puzzles and figuring out a plot is nothing but a puzzle. I think my writing hurdle is that I have several stories floating around in my head and eventually, I have to sit myself down and say…pick one and see it through. My other hurdle is that damned comma. Thank God for editors. I apologize to all you punctuation/grammatically gifted people who are reading this and cringing.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I thought about being a brain surgeon, but at 48, it may be a little too late for that, but not by much. My kids say that I should be a race car driver and really, that would be just perfect for me. Driving fast and getting paid for it, what more could I ask for?
Tell us a bit about your new release.
Dominating Victoria is about a hunky werewolf named Hayden and his mate Victoria. She’s a stubborn, kick-ass beauty set on revenge. As a DEA agent, Hayden can’t let her knockoff a cartel leader, because then he’d have to arrest her and arresting your mate just doesn’t sit well with ‘weres.’
Do you use more than one element of the paranormal in your works?
Not yet, but there’s always that possibility.
Have you written a series?
Yes. My second book, Zellia’s Blade is finished. Zellia and Blade both appear in Dominating Victoria and by the end of that book, I was writing scenes about Zellia and Blade on the side. Rat’s story is next. I’ve got the first four chapters done and in the process of figuring out the rest of the plot. I’ve also got two m/f/m in progress that I started last year and my goal is to finish them next year.
What was the craziest thing you ever did to promote a book?
I haven’t done anything crazy yet, but I’m always hoping for some ideas.
Kitty DuCane's Dominating Victoria
Genre: BDSM Shape-shifter Suspense Paranormal
Available from Loose Id
Victoria McLain’s dad was the best DEA agent ever, but now he’s dead and Victoria’s hell-bent on making the responsible Colombian cartel leader pay. Even though she’s not DEA, her dad trained her as DEA and she plans to use all her training to extract revenge. Her only problem is Hayden Hunt.
Hayden Hunt is a DEA agent and a werewolf. His wolf senses are a blessing when Victoria’s lying to him and a curse when her emotional pain bleeds. Even though he doesn’t know the reckless beauty he's hunting by name, he knows her and he’s determined to keep his mate from her revenge, especially since she doesn’t plan to survive.
Brought together by circumstance, Victoria and Hayden spend their days battling each other and fill their nights with passion as Hayden takes and claims his mate again and again.
But when Victoria discovers that Hayden’s the only survivor of the ambush that killed her dad, she wonders if he’s the mole in the DEA she's been looking for. Hayden will have to prove himself again, if he's going to keep dominating Victoria.
