Guest Author Q&A with Kylie Scott

Dive Bar Series

Hi Kylie!
It is such a pleasure to have you here on my blog! I finished the Stage Dive series not long ago and fell in love with your writing. And the Dive Bar series is turning out just as amazing!

Thank you very much!

-    When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always been fascinated with stories and carried around notebooks since I was little. About ten years ago I had the time on my hands to give writing a serious go. My first book was awful. So I went and took lessons, attended writing conferences, and worked with a mentor. Slowly, I got better.

-        When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? And do you have a ’go-to’ author?

My re-reads are “Sweet Dreams” by Kristen Ashley, “The Darkest Part of the Forest” by Holly Black, and “The Stand” by Stephen King. Mostly, I read romance, but I try to mix it up a bit to keep things fresh.

-         What other books do you have coming out this year that we should keep an eye on?

“Chaser” is out in April, “It Seems Like a Good Idea at the Time” in July, and “Strong” in September.


And for the fun of it…
-         If you were to give a soundtrack to the Dive Bar series can you think of a song or two that would be on it?

Actually, I have a whole bunch of playlists you can check out on my website: http://kyliescott.com/playlists/

-         Can you think of actors you would cast for the boys in the Dive Bar series?

I’m really not sure, sorry. I wrote Evelyn with Jennifer Lawrence in mind and Lena as Kat Dennings.

Thank you so much for taking part of this Q&A! I wish you all the luck in this world with this series and every other book you come to write. I am for sure a fan!
 
Dive Bar, Kylie Scott

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
