K.W McCabe Author Interview/Giveaway:

Hey everyone! So, a few things before we get into it, my new book Unhinged has just been sent to the editor!!! Yay :) In honor of that I've finally revealed the cover as well as set up a giveaway on my separate author's blog, the link of which can be found on the left sidebar! So, everyone needs to go and check it out! ;) Also, some of you may have noticed we skipped over Sunday Salutations this week...Well, that's because there's really not much to say in terms of what we're reading. I've been struggling to get through a few books and have pretty much given up on one of them so be expecting a review. Maybe even later today. We'll see.

Now, down to why you're really here, author K.W McCabe was kind enough to answer a few questions for us as well as give us the link to her rafflecopter, so check it out below and join so you have a chance at winning a copy of her book, Dragon's Call. Here's a blurb and a cover image:

Blurb:

In a war-torn world, a careless act of destruction wakes a creature of myth and legend - a dragon. Mankind unites to battle for survival, but when dragons enter the fray in human form... humans lose.

Three decades later, Cecily lives in an enclave with her father and brother. Ignorant of life before the war, she placidly obeys the restrictions imposed by dragonkind.

Stifled by court life, Derek, heir of the Dragon Queen, commits a petty crime. To avoid punishment and chronic boredom, he escapes to the enclave. His arrival sparks increased tension when he meets Cecily. She realizes the limitations on her freedom, and Derek discovers his life is built on a lie. Their forbidden friendship threatens to splinter the separation between their people, but something more dangerous occurs.

A mysterious killer has kidnapped Cecily's mother - and seems to be stalking Cecily. Derek and Cecily must defy the rules of their society to find and stop the murderer before Cecily is next.

Interview:

1.) Where did the idea for your book come from? I actually wanted to write a YA paranormal story, but was totally sick of anything to do with vampires, zombies, the undead in general.... So I thought - why not dragons?!

2.) How long have you been writing? Did you know early on that writing is something that you wanted pursue? I've been writing small stories and poetry since I was five (obviously nothing worth reading lol) I never thought about pursuing writing because I actually wanted a career that would leave me financially stable. It wasn't until I heard of authors actually making a living off of their writing, that I decided to focus on it more intently.

3.) Was there a particular scene in the book that you enjoyed writing more then others? I really enjoyed writing Todd's scenes. Just the idea of dragons flying and fighting is really fantastic imagery.

4.) Do you have a favorite character that you've created? Maybe one that you wish was real? If so, why? I think out of all the stories I've written, Thomas Lord of Death is my fave. I really love dark and twisted characters for some reason :-D

5.) Did you model any of your characters off of people that you know in real life? I actually did. Cecily has some characteristics that I based off my younger sister. (Shhhh! Don't tell her that!)

6.) What do you enjoy most about writing? When a knew idea hits you like a brick and you have to write it down. Love that feeling.

7.) Do you have a specific process when you write? Process? Well, coffee first, then plumping up the pillows and blankets to support my back, then I do a little check in with fellow authors, do a blog post, then get to writing :-)

8.) Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your writing or your book that we didn't mention? Not much - the best time to write is when the internet is off though - or really late at night when half the world is asleep :-)
