Through the terror of avoiding a sniper’s bullet and nature’s temper tantrum, she struggles to deliver a warning in hopes of saving a like-minded, young woman. Dani’s ability is both a blessing and a curse. Those who would use her for their own ends would kill to control her, yet it’s her ability that allows her to seek out and help others.

Indie Author Interview- Kayla Kirby

Hello everyone,

Today is a great day at Best-When Read Daily as I am here to share with you all my very first featured author for Indie Author Interview Monday. Every Monday I will be presenting a new a indie author to where we will be discussing their work, style of writing, and inspirations behind there career. Let’s get started, super excited. 

Today’s featured author is a newly published Kayla Kirby, author of her debut novel “Souls Of This Broken City” Book One in her Necklace Series and a great book I had the pleasure of reading might I add. Last week I posted an review and detailed info about her book, an today we will hear a little more about the author. Here is a little bit about Kayla before we get to the questions.

Author bio

Kayla Kirby was born and raised in Washington State, a place she has never really considered home. She dreams of traveling someday with her family to see new sights and discover the secrets of the world. She began writing when she was a young child and started with writing Harry Potter fanfiction.

 

Kayla met her now-husband in High School through a debate about the similarities of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Their romance started nearly two years after meeting and the pair eloped shortly after. Kayla packed up her life in Washington and moved to California with her husband, finding her home under the warm sun and close to the water fronts. However, a year later, they moved back to Washington where they currently reside, waiting to once again leave the rainy, Evergreen State behind.

 

When she isn’t writing, Kayla is either spending time with her husband, their young and active toddler, and their family including their dog Kodiak or working on her photography or, on a not-so-rare occasion, having arguments with her fiction characters inside her head.

​Now to the good stuff. Here are the questions I had the pleasure of asking Kayla.

Questions:

Tell us a little more about your recent book?

My most recent book is Souls of This Broken City and is an urban fantasy/dystopian fiction book that follows the story of Chase Tombson as he learns who, and what he is, as a Soul within our world. It is the first installment in The Necklace Series.


What has been your favorite part of writing it?

Seeing the story unfold and the characters gain their personalities. The characters have seriously written themselves, haha. I also love hearing how people have connected to the characters and seeing their predictions for each character.


How many hours a day do you write?

Anywhere from 2 to 6 hours, depending on how many times a day I sit down. I do it in parts.


What gives you inspiration to continue writing?

The fact that I am chasing a dream of mine and my husband has repeatedly told me I have stories in my head that the world needs to have. He’s seriously been a huge help and I’ve wanted to be an author since I was a child.
What has your experience been like as an indie author?

It’s been hard, but so very rewarding. I have met incredible people I wouldn’t have if I had traditionally published and I am so glad I met these people. I’ve read some amazing books over the past several months after joining the community and discovered new authors I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t found the indie community. They are all so supportive because we are all in this together and have all faced the same struggles with self publishing.


What has been the biggest surprise you’ve experienced as an indie author?

Probably how much goes into editing and formatting. I never realized how difficult it was and from having my manuscript edited, I’ve learned a lot about how to write properly! I also didn’t know that formatting included computer coding, which is another passion of mine. I talked to my editor on a daily bases while she was editing and formatting and she explained a lot to me.


Any WIPs in the making?

Besides the second installment of The Necklace Series (the title has not been announced), I am working on a co-write with my husband, Thomas Kirby, called Tilly. It follows the story of a young woman named Tilly who escapes prostitution in Seattle, WA after her attempted murder gives her the chance and works to take down the organization that enslaved her.


Do you prefer to write stand alone novels or a series?

It depends on what the story is that is wanting to be told. I have a few stand alone novels I want to write and I also have at least two series’. So yeah it really honestly all depends.


Where do you draw your inspiration when creating a character?

It’s a bit of an interesting process. Each of my characters have bits and pieces of people I know inside them and have bits and pieces of myself in them. They develop around the story and I go with my gut for making them who they are. Their ethnicity, religion, struggles, ext are all gut feelings and I run with it. I research parts of them I don’t know and apply the information I find. When it comes to names, I give them a name that means something to the role they play or the struggles they face and how they overcome it. It’s a little “Easter egg” of sorts for readers to try and find out who the characters are a little bit more (the only exception to this rule is Treea). From there, I “interview” them and write down questions and answer them as if I was the character to better get to know them. Then, when I start writing, they write themselves and I just go with it.

What is the most difficult thing about writing a character of the opposite sex?

Honestly, it’s making them seem like the opposite sex. Take Chase and his friend, BS, for example; they’re teenage boys. I’m a girl so I never experienced life as a teenage boy. Of course, I have brothers and I spent a lot of time in HS around my guy friends and so I had a slight idea on how to make male characters, but that’s all I had to go off of. I had to learn an entire new body language and way of speaking for me to try and make them realistic. 


Do you try to be more original or to deliver what the reader wants?

I’m original. Because I write with my heart and follow my gut, I write what I feel needs to be said. There will be hints to what readers want, but honestly I’m telling the story how it needs to be told, not trying to please others by writing it how they see fit. That’s what fanfiction is for (which I hope to see some fanfiction of my books someday).


What is the main thing you want readers to take away from your book?

I want them to realize that their actions will always have an impact. That the words they speak will have an impact. That anytime you drop a friend off or get off the phone could be the last time you see that person and whatever you talked about or said or did will be what you remember most about them. I want readers to be more careful with their words and actions and to realize that everything they do begins a butterfly effect, whether that be good or bad. Build people up, don’t break them down.


What would you like to say to readers and fans?

I want to thank them for reading my work and to ask them to please leave a review. Good or bad. Reviews help the indie community a lot and they are all welcome. And tell others about my book. Word of mouth is a powerful tool and I would really appreciate it if you told others about my book and helped me get my name out there.


Any last comments you would like to add?

Just a thank you for this opportunity and letting me be your first interview! To the readers, feel free to find me on social media! I would love to connect with all of you and get to know you. I want to interact with readers, not just milk them for reviews. I want to hear your questions and comments and predictions and your thoughts on the characters and story. So please, stop by sometime and say “hi”!

Here’s more about Kayla Kirby’s debut novel.

Synopsis

      Chase Tombson wants to live unseen by the world so he can be a protective force for his sister, only her and his best friend by his side. Blinded to the war raging on around them, the three friends focus on their lives as young teens while an uprising is growing between those in charge and those they rule over.

      In search for answers about their friend’s brutal and mysterious death, Chase’s world is turned upside down when he comes face-to-face with a shadow world hidden within his own. Facing enemies beyond human capabilities, who have kidnapped his sister, can Chase gather allies and mount a rescue? The clock has started, and Chase’s actions will shape the future. Can he make it to the light, or will he succumb to the darkness surrounding him?

Welcome to Best- When Read Daily


Hello everyone, 

I am Nathalia Best, SAHM of two toddlers, Romance author, editor, beta reader, and book blogger. Welcome to my blog. Here you will find the latest in all things Indie writing including, author interviews, book reviews, release blitz, givaways and more including news about my own writing. I will be posting Indie Author interviews every monday, and other themed post at least twice a week. Let’s get into a little more about me.

I’m a 24 yr old stay at home mother of two toddlers, both boys a year apart. When I don’t have little people clawing at me 😁 I spend my time writing romance novels, short stories, and of course blog post. I chose to write in the romance genre because I am a hopeless romantic and I love a great HEA and what better to ensure that than writing it yourself. Before you ask, no I am not currently published, but I am in the process of having two books released next year as well as an anthology published in February.

I was born and raised in New Jersey,  I’m the eldest of my mother’s eleven children, yes you read right, eleven. I have been writing since I was six years old. Even as a young child I’ve been an avid reader. My mother used to read to me all the time until I was able to read and began reading to her. Most adults didn’t understand a six year old child who dreamed to be a Archaeologist and a writer, but that never dulled my fire burning for knowledge. Even though my love for science didn’t last long, I never gave up on my dream of writing and well here we are today. 

I’m pretty much an open book, so if you have any questions you would like to ask me please feel free to leave then in the comments below. You can also contact me on facebook and by email. Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter to be the first to receive the latest and greatest from the Best *snicker*. All links will be provided below, until next time all be happy, stay sane, and read on.

Excerpt

       Once Chase had left the graveyard, Alice finished getting dressed and gathered up her belongings, crying silently. She began to leave, her shoulders hunched. In the distance, she heard the flapping of wings and froze. She heard something land on the lamp post above her and she very slowly turned around, glancing up to see, blinded slightly by the street lamp’s light, the silhouette of a man perched on the street lamp, large wings spread out. The man extended a hand to her and Alice screamed.

       Shortly after, the street was stained red, and a young girl’s body was found, torn to shreds, unrecognizable. The only clue to what killed her was her phone, which was turned on, a picture of a man with wings taking off from the street lamp with half of his face showing, was on the screen.

The rain began to fall, the sound of sirens ringing in the distance.

In the bushes of the cemetery, a black sleeve swung in the wind.
