AAD Author Spotlight: Stacey Kennedy
Today's featured author is Stacey Kennedy, author of Supernaturally Kissed and Werewolves be Damned! She's here to tackle the Five Question Quiz and to spill the beans on her books:
1. Introduce yourself, Twitter style! Describe yourself or your books in 140 characters or less.
My novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again.
2. Tell us a little bit about your latest release, or your upcoming projects if you'd prefer.
Tess Jennings has the ability to see and talk to spirits. On a daily basis, they harass and annoy her to save their souls. Sometimes she helps, other times she ignores them, but one ghost will give her no choice. Kipp McGowan, a cop with the Memphis Police Department, uses his ghostly charms to gain her attention and forces her to expose herself to his partner.
As she’s pulled into the five year old cold case of Hannah Reid she wants no part of, she finds herself in more than one precarious situation. But that’s the least of her worries―Tess begins to have a serious problem on her hands. Kipp might be dead, but he’s drop-dead gorgeous and she’s beginning to forget that he’s a ghost.
Murder and corruption has brought Tess and Kipp together. But as her feelings for Kipp deepen, she suspects she just signed herself up for a one-way ticket to the nut house, and can only hope, straitjackets come in a size four.
The next is WEREWOLVES BE DAMNED, releasing with Entangled Publishing.
In Carson City, Nevada, a werewolf attack awakens Nexi Jones to the existence of the Otherworld. She must reconcile this hard truth, and her heritage as guardian/witch, while she trains to join the Council’s Guard. But the combat training is only half of her worries. Her biggest concern is keeping her cool around her mentor, the luscious guardian, Kyden.
Before long, the werewolf attacks are escalating, Nexi’s personal life is in chaos, and someone from her past has returned to stake his claim. Soon, she’s dodging werewolf bites and avoiding the vampire who’s issued a bull’s eye on her back. She’ll have one chance to save the worlds, the ones she loves…and herself.
Both books are urban fantasy romances that are the first books in the series. I’m more than excited for release days…and am counting down the days!
3. What books (your own or others) do you recommend most often?
I don’t think there is enough space here for me to list my all my recommendations. But I’ll stick to my three favorite series, that if you haven’t read, you need to check out…NOW.
Katie MacAlister’s Dragon series, Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series, and Keri Arthur’s Riley Jenson Guardian series.
I’ve loved every book in these series, and if you like hunky men, adventure, humor, and strong heroines, then you need to read these books!
4. What part of Authors After Dark 2012 are you looking forward to the most?
I’m so thrilled to be attending Authors After Dark to be able to meet everyone I’ve gotten to know on Facebook and Twitter. In addition, this will likely be my first ever book signing, so I’m excited to sit down with readers and talk books!
5. If you've been to AAD before, do you have any advice for first time attendees?
I’ve never been to AAD before, or any conference for that matter, so all I can say is…let’s make this first experience a great one!
Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll find fast paced action, life threatening moments and a big bad villain that needs to be destroyed. Her urban fantasy/paranormal and erotic romance series have hit Amazon Kindle and All Romance Ebooks Bestseller lists. If she isn’t plugging away at her next novel, tending to her two little ones, she’s got her nose deep in a good book. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband.
Be sure to drop her a line at www.staceykennedy.com, she loves to hear from her readers.
Many thanks to Stacey for stopping by today, and don't forget to check out both books for yourself- Supernaturally Kissed and Werewolves be Damned!
