Katlyn Duncan

1. What do you feel about the number '13'?

I love the number thirteen and even more so now that I have two books releasing in 2013!

2. What's the best thing that happened after your book was published?

The overwhelming feeling of gratitude I felt that I had realized my dream of becoming published.

3. How did you celebrate the publishing of your book?

I went out to dinner with my husband. It was very low key which is our style. 

4. Do you read reviews of your book?

I do read reviews. I feel I can learn a lot through what people like (or dislike) about my books. 

5. What is your best or most unforgettable moment with a fan?

I haven't had too much fan interaction since my book is digital but I love when people read my book and tweet about it or share on Facebook. It's a great feeling. 

6. Was there any book/s from other debut author of 2013 that you loved?

Sadly I haven't had too much time to read since I've been contracted to write three books this year, but I did enjoy The Language of Spells by Sarah Painter and Silence of the Wolves by Hannah Pole.

7. Are you interested in writing in a different genre or for a different audience?

I love to read many genres and I do have a few story ideas in other genres than paranormal so I would definitely be up for it. 

8. Share us one embarrassing moment you've had.

Ack! There are so many! I'd have to say one of the worst was when I had a choking fit while I was in a play. It was quite embarrassing!

9. Favorite color? Red
Favorite movie? Pride and Prejudice (2005 version)
Favorite ice cream flavor? Ben & Jerry's Milk and Cookies
Favorite song? Currently… (because it's always changing) Farewell by Rihanna
Ultimate celebrity crush (dead or alive)? Gerard Butler

10. What's next for you?

I am currently working on Book Three in The Life After trilogy!


More about Katlyn!

I've been writing and reading since I can remember. My fondest memories were pushing mom out of the house to get the latest Goosebumps installment. Even though I went to school for biology and currently work in the medical field, I find time to write/read every day. Eventually my persistence turned into my debut novel, Soul Taken, the first book in The Life After trilogy published by Carina UK.

Outside of writing, I enjoy spending time with my hubs, pup, and sometimes a good rom com.

Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…
