Q & A

Q: How long were you a part-time writer before you became a full-time one?

A: I had a part-time job for the first 3 years of my writing career. I’ve since written on a full-time basis (2 years).

Q: What are common traps for aspiring writers?

A: Not writing what moves you and trying simply to write what you think is ‘hot.’ If you aren’t passionate about what you write, it will show in your work. Also, don’t think you can write a book and make a million bucks. As soon as you publish your first book, write the second, and so on. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Q: What is your writing Kryptonite?

A: Ha! You should know this as well as anyone. Social media! I get sucked into it. If I stayed off social media, I could get another hour or more a day in on my writing. But I’d miss the interpersonal connections. And I believe it’s necessary for romance writers to connect with their readers.

Q: What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

A: In the literal sense, as in traveling somewhere to find my inner writer – none. But figuratively, I’ve been on a lot. I believe each book I write is a pilgrimage. And each book has me learning something about writing, or myself, or the world around me.

Q: If you could tell your younger writing self-anything, what would it be?

A: Start writing sooner! Don’t wait for the right time. The right time is now.

Q: What’s the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?

A: While writing Finding Mikayla, I did a lot of research on military bases and apocalyptic events. I thought for sure the police would come knocking in my door with all the searches I was doing about the security at military bases.

Q: How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?

A: It didn’t. Mainly because I only sold like 50 copies in the first few months. LOL. I just kept writing. My process hasn’t really changed in the last 5 years. Except that I no longer read my works-in-progress aloud to my husband – I did that in the beginning. Too time consuming.

Q: What does literary success look like to you?

A: The daily emails I get from readers who say how my books have touched their lives. The comments I read in my Facebook reader groups. The reviews that get posted about my books. THOSE are how I measure success, not by any bank account.

Q: Can you share with us the best way to reach you and where to learn more about your books?Facebook page:

A special thanks to Samantha

Thank you Samantha for taking time in answering my questions. Samantha is just one of the many authors I’ve encountered over the years, and her unforgettable novels and series have brought me the most enjoyment, heartbreak, anger, fear and relatively every emotion in between. The work and talent of this author has taught me many things: reading, no matter the story, is the perfect getaway. Some of the stories she tells, demands you to feel your heart break into a million pieces and then to feel your heart become whole again. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gone insane waiting on her next book to be released. Samantha your talent has no end. Thank you for your awesome stories.

I absolutely loved this book. Kahlen 's stories are so well thought through. The passion and fire between the characters are explosive. This story had me at the edge of my seat a number of times.

.

Caleb wasn't meant to love her but Wren was the woman that he could not live without. The bitch of a stepmother had me almost pulling my hair out. And Macy? OMG.... I wanted to kick her ass so bad! I felt sorry for Cale's father because from the beginning I thought he was nothing but pathetic man who didn't care for his son's feelings but later on I understood why.

.

 

Awwww Mrs. Joansy reminded me of my own grandmother. Loved her wit and stern sense of humour. Loved this book. I cried ugly tears and I laughed like a nutter. Thanks Kahlen for a great read! Can't wait to see what you come up with next. Perhaps Dex's story?

This continues Beth and Shane’s story and it just keeps getting better.
Shane is still just as bossy and over protective and Beth still manages to get her own way by being strong, loving and making Shane compromise without him even realizing it. It works well for both of them.

.

In this book, Beth’s past comes back to haunt her and it terrifies her. Shane isn’t about to let anything happen to her, though, and if he could lock her away at his country estate until the threat was dealt with, he would. But, of course, things are not going to be that easy as Beth won’t be controlled and manipulated.

A book filled with drama, danger, love and so much more. April is an amazing author who keeps on giving. Love her work!

April you have done it again!!!
I loved every bit of this novel. I got to see a side of Jonah and Lia that I didn't realise I craved. Their love is unconditional and powerful. Jonah is such a sweetheart and his all-consuming love for Lia is unmistakable. I want that!! Lia is a fire cracker all the way. Her sassiness and sense of humour gets me every time.

** Spoiler Alert**

.

Mack and Erin’s story is one filled with pure pain, heartbreak, healing and unconditional love. Mack Donovan is the Head of security at the bookstore where Erin works. Mack is secretly in love with Erin but cannot act on his feelings or his boss Shane will kick his ass. Mack is a great guy but way older than Erin and Shane is over protective because Erin is so much younger than Mack and she is also one of Beth’s friends. He does not want to see Erin get hurt but little does he realize that keeping Mack away from Erin, causes her so much more pain and suffering.

.

Erin is head over heels in love with Mack but he will not acknowledge her. He banters with her but keeps his distance. Is it because she is young and inexperienced? Does he want a more experienced woman instead? She thought being a virgin was a good thing but is it instead a curse?

.

Erin is a kind, caring and loving woman who puts everyone else’s needs and wants above her own. Her needs don’t matter so to prove this, she accepts a night out with her friends. Her friends however have boyfriends so once again she builds up the courage to ask Mack to accompany her to the New Year’s Eve party, however Mack turns her down. Disappointment fills her but she won’t let him see the hurt in her eyes. Going to a New Year’s party is not what she wants to do but a promise is a promise. She needs to go with her friends and try to have a good time. Midnight comes and she is all alone. Her friends decide to leave with their significant others only to leave her alone at a party she didn’t even want to attend.

.

Mack knows something is wrong. Erin isn’t at work and he is worried. Where could she be? His heart is beating a mile a minute. He has to know she is fine. Her phones goes to voice mail. Her friends don’t know where she is. Did she meet someone? After hunting high and low, he finds her but what he sees, will haunt him for the rest of his life. He blames himself. Why did he turn her invite down?

.

Erin is in so much pain. She can barely open her eyes. Her body hurts all over. Was she in an accident? Where is she?

.

There is so much more story so please read this book but make sure you have the tissues ready.

This story was so well written. The pain was real... The heartbreak was felt... the tears fell easily... I know that somewhere out there in this cruel world, is a woman who has or is suffering the same way Erin did in this book and my heart goes out to her. OMG what Erin endured.... i would not wish that upon my worst enemy.

.

April, you write with so much heart. When i read one of your books, the characters come to life. I live what they are going through. I feel what they feel. The emotions, the love, the suffering, the heartbreak. The unity of family is what holds us together and the love that the McIntyre family have for each other is felt right down to the bone.

.

Thank you for writing this emotional but yet amazing story.

A romance story like no other.

.

The intense love that these two characters share is totally breath-taking. What they need to go through in order to share their lives is a little scary. I keep waiting for the next shoe to drop. I pray it won't but will have to see in the next book... part 2...

.

I love that Kahlen has based this book on her Remembrance Trilogy series. We always want to dream of a book or series that we love, become a movie and reading about it is so much fun. The references to songs used, had me listening to the songs on YouTube. The choices were perfect for the storyline. I love that Kahlen has a duel P.OV in all of her books. Makes the story more realistic. Can't wait to read the next one.. a must read for sure!

Q & A

 

First of all, I want to thank you for thinking of me, Alexandra. I’ve read many of your reviews and they’re amazing. Your new website is beautiful, by the way.

.

Q: Do you have any unique or quirky writing habits?

A: I’m not sure you’d call it quirky, but I do have one that’s more a ritual than a quirk. Five years ago, not long after Surviving Sydney was released, I received an email from a reader in South Africa who said the book had helped her through a difficult period in her life. That single email and the grace with which it was written was a turning point of sorts for me. Now, every day before I sit down to write, I read that email and blow a kiss to that reader who reminded me why I write.

.

Q: How has your environment & upbringing coloured your writing?

A: Coincidentally, I was recently discussing this with another writer. Growing up, my mother was obsessed with films. My earliest memories involve sitting in a dark theatre watching everything from the greats to the not-so-greats and loving every moment of them. The stories, dialogue, pacing, camera angles, everything fascinated me, so from an early age I knew I had to be a part of the storytelling process. In retrospect, I’m sure that’s why I write my books as screenplays first.

.

Q: Describe what your ideal writing space looks like.

A: Happily, my ideal writing space is where I am now. It’s a room tucked away on the far side of the house with many windows, beautiful views, and a fountain just outside so I can hear water music all year long.

.

Q: What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?

A: Hands-down, it would have to be learning to balance my life by keeping things in perspective. As an author, it’s too easy to make it all about the ratings game and lose oneself along the way. I often tell people my epitaph will read: She was a human being first, a writer second.

.

Q: What are your current projects?

A: At the moment, I’m working on several things including For Love of Honor, the finale to the Wicked Tails Series. Also in the queue are The Siren Wore Scarlet, the sequel to Once Upon a Faerie, as well as two mainstream fiction thrillers, A Prudent Man and Aurora Rising. There may be a surprise or two along the way but I’ll never tell.

.

Q: What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?

A: I don’t believe a publishing company starts out intending to be unethical but way too many devolve to that. Probably their most prevalent sin, and this goes for companies both large and small, is their cavalier attitude toward authors, the very same people who in essence pay their salaries. They sign you by offering the sun, the moon and stars, but often what you end up with is a landfill of broken promises. It’s no wonder so many authors are going the Indie route. I will say, however, that the new breed of boutique publishers are filling the void and doing a wonderful job of meeting the reading public’s needs as well as their authors’. Props to them.

.

Q: What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?

A: I can’t think of any one thing but the research for Once Upon a Faerie took months. When your three leading men are at minimum 500 years old from diverse backgrounds and locales, you want your historical and geographical references as accurate as possible. Giving life to paranormal characters while making them credible was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever dealt with — and the most rewarding.

.

Q: If you were deserted on an island, which three people would you want to have with you? Why?

Criteria:

* One fictional character from your book

* One fictional character from any other book

* One famous person that is not a family member or friend

A: Great question! I’ll confess I had to think about this for a few minutes but here goes…

A fictional character from one of my books is Sky Barlow from Runaway Brat who, ironically, is the most like me of any of my female characters. I figure the trouble we get into will make the time go faster.

.

A fictional character from any other book is Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist or what would come to be known as a profiler, the lead character from Caleb Carr’s The Alienist. Behavioral profiling has always fascinated me and what better opportunity to pick his brain.

One famous person not a family member or friend is Desmond Tutu, a man I’ve long admired for his passion and human rights activism.

.

Q: What’s something you are really good at that few people know about?

A: This may seem like a small thing but it’s taken me years to perfect the art of making a truly amazing paella. Even more impressive is the fact that I have not one drop of Spanish blood in me. Sadly.

.

Q: Give us an interesting fun fact about your book.

A: This is a true story that blew me away. From the outset of writing A Prudent Man, I knew I wanted to use a home I owned for several years as the setting for Annie Heywood’s home, an old farmhouse at the end of a secluded lane with a somewhat unsavory history. At one point in the book, Annie discovers some sketches of the house crucial to the plot.

.

Not long after I wrote the scene, and knowing little or nothing about the book I was currently writing, my sister called to remind me she had a carton of artwork that somehow made it into her storage facility instead of mine. She followed up the phone call with a text and photos of some of the pieces and there was a framed sketch of the house, our house, Annie’s and mine. I have no memory of ever seeing that sketch, nor did I know of its existence but there it was. It’s decades old, worn, weathered and unsigned but, needless to say, it will make its public debut as an integral part of the book. I’ve since learned it was a box left in the attic by previous owners of the house and undiscovered by me until it made its way into the moving van and my sister’s protective custody. Is life stranger than fiction? You bet it is.

.

Q: Can you share with us the best way to reach you and where to learn more about your books?

A: I’ll be happy to and thank you again for thinking of me. This was fun.

FANTASTIC answers Shelby. Thank you so much for taking the time in answering my questions.

.

When a book that you have written impacts a readers life in a significant way, we the reader, thank you. Your passion for life is so inspiring.

.

Thank you for changing my personality every time I pick up one of your books. When reading Contemporary Adult Fiction written by you, the characters seem to come to life. I almost see them as real people in front of me instead of fictional characters on pages.

.

Books give me the feeling that I don’t have to live in the real world all the time, and that really helps when I’m dealing with something difficult. We have all been there at some point in our lives and I am sure many would agree with me when I say that we look forward to escaping inside the pages of a good book. Thank you for being the amazing Author that you are!

I appreciate you and everything you do.

A romance story like no other. The intense love that these two characters share is totally breath-taking. What they need to go through in order to share their lives is a little scary. I keep waiting for the next shoe to drop. I pray it won't but will have to see in the next book... part 2...

.

I love that Kahlen has based this book on her Remembrance series. We always want to dream of a book or series that we love, become a movie and reading about it is so much fun. The references to songs used, had me listening to the songs on YouTube. The choices were perfect for the storyline. I love that Kahlen has a duel P.OV in all of her books. Makes the story more realistic. Can't wait to read the next one.. a must read for sure!

The second book brought so many tears to my eyes. I cried uncontrollably and felt like my own heart was breaking. I cried ugly tears and dared not wear mascara. The beauty of their love for one another was so heartfelt. Their love is something that only we can dream of. The lucky few that experience it... well I am in awe of those.

The third book... well if I thought I cried in book 2... that had nothing on this book. OMG!!! What they go through in this book is nothing short of a miracle. It’s all consuming and pulls you in like a moth to a flame. I struggled getting up for work because I couldn’t put it down. Therefore not getting enough sleep. Make sure you read this when you don’t need to work the next day! You will laugh without a doubt especially with Aaron (Ryan’s brother) and his girlfriend Jenna. They are so hilarious. Witty and sassy!

The last and final book has to be recognised as the beginning of their forever.... so beautiful. The trial and tribulations and the sacrifices that were made, had me tied up in knots. Once again tears were free falling. The romance, the twists and turns were so beautiful. Please take the time to read these books without interruptions.

.

Kahlen Aymes has yet again written from the heart and given her readers a true love story. The style of writing is breathtakingly stunning. The poems... the references... the picture painted about Paris.. I felt like I was seeing it with my own eyes. I loved that there was a duel P.O.V and that all the characters had their own personality. It was funny, sassy, heart-breaking, frustrating and so so beautiful. Thank you Kahlen! Never stop writing!

Precious moments…

Where do I begin,

.

This author and book was recommended to me by another fantastic author Samantha Christy.

.

When I started reading this book, it was almost as if I went back in time. Let me explain briefly why I say so.

.

After surviving a traumatic event, I fell pregnant with my son. I didn’t know what to do because being so young and coming from a Catholic family, would have been shameful however… My parents stood by me and adopted my son from birth. I never saw his father again and although I knew one day my son would ask questions, I just couldn’t face the father. We were both young and I knew that even though I went through what I went through at the time, he would not be the man to provide for us.

.

19 years had passed and I was about to have major surgery when I by chance met a relative of his who game me his number. I knew this was my opportunity to tell him about our son. I was at work on the day and decided it was then or never. I couldn’t call him from home because my husband would have been very hurt. I dialed the number on the 4th ring, he picked up. I was scared but did what I had to do. He was shocked of course but also not once did he question me. Was it because I had called or that he finally found out he was a father? I found that odd. It so happens that he was aware of my son but did not care. I know it is sad and even now 5 years later, he still has not even attempted to contact my son. My son however is fine with it. He has a great life and just wishes his biological father well.

.

Half way through this book, I received some more devasting news. My uncle and my rock, had passed away. It has been now 24 hours since his passing and I needed to take my mind off from the heartbreak and found comfort in reading this book to the end.

.

This is a story of devastation, comfort, sacrifices and unconditional love.

.

Teagan and Chase are very much in love but when Chase accepts a soccer career in London, he loses everything he ever wanted instead. He thought if he proved himself to Teagan’s father, he would finally be good enough for her. He needed to be something, someone but at what cost?

.

Teagan was excited to tell Chase the news of the pregnancy but with his excitement of playing for Arsenal, she decided to keep it a secret for a little longer. She knew if she told Chase that he would not follow his dreams and stay to look after her and the baby and then maybe later even resent her?

.

Her father was an “EVIL SOD” he didn’t like Chase and when he found out that Teagan was pregnant, he threatened to ruin Chase’s career before it even started. Chase’s best friend Jensen promised to look after Teagan when Chase left for London but Chase never expected Jensen and Teagan to break his heart.

.

For 6 years Chase has mourned Teagan. He loved her with all of his heart and just couldn’t hate her like he wanted to. Like he needed to.

.

Teagan was frantic and desperate, so she sent Chase a message to please come and see her. She knew he would hate her even more once he found out the truth. She knew he would be devasted and feared he may not even come but she had no other choice. Her baby girl’s life was at stake.

.

Remi is a beautiful and intelligent little 5-year-old girl that has Leukaemia and who is fighting for her life. She has been through so much and just wants to be a normal little girl. She knows she is loved by her mom and Jenson, but she also knows that one day she will meet the one person whom she will call “Daddy”

.

Will he rescue her? Will he save her the bad medicine?

.

This book had me in tears. Some sad tears and some happy tears. The love that is poured out this little girl is so heart-warming. I felt it down to my toes.

.

The story was realistic and very well written. I wish I could give more of the story away but then it would be spoiling if for all. I can just honestly say… IF WAS FANTASTIC A STORY SO PLEASE READ IT!!!

.

Well done to this brilliant author Kahlen Aymes. Your work is heartfelt and well though through. You wrote this with so much passion and devotion it was almost as if you lived the story yourself to share it with us.

.

I loved that you wrote with a dual POV.  while reading each word, I could almost see the story come alive.

.

I will for sure recommend this to all.

Kaylen Aymes writes with her heart on her sleeve. She writes about unforgettable passion and an all consuming love. The characters have their own duel P.O.V and I love that we get to see their side of everything.

This story kept me on the edge of my seat and reading it was as if the story came to life in front of me. I was actually living the story! It was filled with suspense, sadness, a level of pain that will bring you to tears, love, humor and so much passion. The story was so captivating and well thought through.
