Author Spotlight - K. Webster
Ok so here is what we know about K. Webster. She's a badass writer and she feeds our addiction so frequently because this woman is constantly releasing books. And we have loved practically every single one. Whether its a solo release or she has paired up with another author and co-written a book K. Webster has a way with words that gets us all riled up.
Her latest release The Day She Cried was so freaking amazing and is a book that I feel EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE should read. It is powerful in it's message and one that will stick with me forever.
I first discovered K. Webster scrolling through the book of faces. Her cover for Whispers and the Roars popped up on our newsfeed, I knew nothing really about her but that cover made me instantly one click the book. I devoured the book and instantly searched for more from her.
I have devoured every book of hers since and I am still working my way through her backlist. She's has a ton of books out but I plan on reading every single one of them. A number of her books have landed on my Ride or Die Reads list and I am sure there will be more that end up on that list. I of course started stalking K. Webster because well that's what I do when I find an author that I love.
The one thing about K. Webster that everyone should know is just that she is fearless when it comes to her writing, often dealing with subjects that are taboo and dark. She dabbles in all different types of romance genres from contemporary to rom com to dark. And don't get me wrong I love them all but her dark and taboo are the ones that I flove the most. The way she tells a story is truly amazing and if you ask me she doesn't get enough credit for what she does so well.
What I can tell you from my observations and my own interactions with K. Webster is that she is truly humble, she's hilarious and she is soooo easy to talk to. You can tell how genuine she is and she truly cares for others.
She's also quite the stalker herself lol. She is very active on social media and so very approachable. Don't be surprised if she comments on your posts on facebook and interacts with you. I fan girl everytime she does to me.
So Mrs. Webster was kind enough to agree to a Q & A. So let's dive into those right now and see what she had to say.
Q: Tell us about yourself in one sentence?
A: Books are my world.
Q: How long does it take you to write start to finish?
A: Anywhere from a week to three weeks depending on how fired up I am for the story.
Q: Do you have a release day tradition?
A: Write. That sounds silly but it’s what I do. I feel energized and excited to finish another project.
Q: Would you date any of your characters from your books? And if so which one?
A: Reed from The Wild because daddies are my kryptonite.
Q: What project(s) do you have coming up that you are looking forward to?
A: I have some taboo treats, which I love. Also, I have the fourth and final pretty little dolls book coming soon. I’m currently writing on a book that has the same intensity as Whispers and the Roars (minus the psychological element) that I’m super excited about.
Q: Out of the books you’ve written which one are you the closest to?
A: Crushed (book 5 in Breaking the Rules series). A lot of my own experiences and feelings went into that story.
Q: Do you have a writing ritual?
A: Mostly, coffee and a blanket. I have to be comfortable and with a hot mug nearby. It gets my creative juices flowing.
Q: If your characters got together for drinks, what kinds of things would they say about you?
A: This bitch is crazy. They probably also say: “She thinks she can tell us what to do but we’re going to do what we want anyway.” And then they all throw their heads back and laugh maniacally.
Q: What’s your go to writing snack?
A: I don’t really snack while writing because then I’m distracted. My fingers go ninety to nothing and I can’t be having Cheetos grime all over my keyboard. So, coffee it is.
Q: What do you do when you hit a writer’s block?
A: I read. I listen to music. And if it still doesn’t flow, I move on to a different book to write.
Q: Do you do any in-depth research when you are writing a sex scene?
A: Ha! No. I think I’ve either tried it all, seen it all on Tumblr before, or have an already explicit imagination.
Q: What do you contribute most to your success? A: I think just constant hard work. I never stop and I’m always trying to do better than my last book. I think it shows for the readers and they can trust that I’ll always deliver something entertaining.
Q: Do you read on the toilet?
Q: What is the last book you read?
A: Fire in His Embrace by Ruby Dixon
Q: What’s the one thing piece of advice you would give yourself if you could go back to when you first decided to start writing?
A: You’re going to hit a major blip in the summer of 2017 but you’re going to sail right over it. Don’t ever get discouraged because, remember, you’re a badass superstar. Always write what makes you happy and that will equate into something the readers will love. Not everyone will love everything, but someone will love something.
Q: If you were to create a slogan for your life what would it be?
A: Don’t worry, be fucking happy.
Q: If you could ask your readers some questions what would you ask?
A: What makes you read my books? They’re all so different and many people try to read each one that comes out. I want to know if you’re simply an eclectic reader like I’m an eclectic writer, or if you just support someone and want to read all their stuff. Curious mind wants to know!
