The Lovestruck Novice Welcomes Kat Martin!!!

Happy Tuesday, TLN'ers!!

Feelin' the beginning of the week blues? No worries! You just need to escape into a KAT MARTIN book!!

Kat's no stranger to the Lovestruck Novice and we're always thrilled to have her swing by. There's no better way to learn about the industry than to ask one of its legends! Let's get down to the good stuff!!

1) If you were a book, what would your blurb be?

She worked till it drove her crazy, and loved every minute of it.

2)Using three words, describe your voice. 

Less is more.

3)With numerous novels and awards to your credit: What's been the secret to your continued success? 

Hard work and perseverance.  Never giving up and being true to myself.

4) What's your opinion on the new trends in the publishing industry? Is it all passing fancy or will the changes stick? 

Some of it will stick, some not.  Good writers who have their own stories to tell will stick.  Those who are trend followers will mostly disappear.  Ebooks are not going away.

5) If you had to start all over again, what would be the one bit of advice you'd want to take with you? 

Don’t give up.

6) What's up next? Any news you'd like to share?

AGAINST THE STORM is coming out October 25.  Trace Rawlins’ story.  It’s the fourth book in the Against Series that started with the Raines brothers, Against the Wind.  After that, Johnnie Riggs in AGAINST THE NIGHT, out end of Feb, and Jake Cantrell, AGAINST THE SUN, out the end of May.  So lots going on for me. 

What a fantastic line-up and a perfect example of a writing career done 'write'!! I'd like to thank Kat for the awesome advice and taking time out of her busy schedule to be here today! If you'd like to know more about Kat Martin, please check out her website:

THANK YOU, TLN'ers!! Best wishes for a stress-free week! Happy reading and writing!!

Although I have loved most of your books, the AGAINST series is by far my favorite! Against the Storm sounds so intriguing, I can hardly wait for it to arrive. Your comment about less is more is right on the mark! Your books are faced paced and never loose my interest -- allbeit I loose sleep as I find it hard to put your books down. Thank you Kat for your wonderful writing.

Good morning! nice to be back on Lovestruck Novice. So glad you are enjoying my switch to contemp. It took me a long time to really get hold of the genre and sink my teeth in. A lot of people have asked me how the next three Against books tie in with theh Raines brothers. Trace, Johnnie Riggs, and Jake Cantrell went to Mexico with Dev Raines to find and bring home little Chrissy, the child who had been abducted. Hope you enjoy the new book! kat
