Ask a Question…..

Katelina here. You might know me from Ms. Naylor’s books (Ms. Naylor?!? Puh-lease!) or from the Weekend Interviews I conduct on this blog every week when I interview characters form other literary universes.

This coming week (September 17th) we have a special interview coming. Instead of interviewing a character from a book I will be interviewing my author! That’s right, Jo will be here and she will be answering my questions whether she likes it or not!

While I’m asking her all of those probing, need to know things, I thought it might be a great idea if you could ask her questions, too. Not that I think she’s interesting enough to create a lot of curiosity, but just in case you can think of something you’d like to know, leave it in a comment below and on Saturday, September 17th, I will make her answer.

I look forward to your questions and queries. And never mind if you don’t see Jo around. She’s a little… tied up at the moment.

  1. mmm have to put my thinking cap on and that devil of a character has hidden it. Let’s see you say you make up the names but where do you look to get ideas? Did you know when you wrote the first book – well actually before – that it would be a series and where do you get all these ideas? And it’s no secret Katelina becomes part of the undead population, sort of lose some of the whimsey like the food bits, and …. uh I forget. Does katelina regret that she won’t be able to have kids now? Jorick I assume is her maker. So she has to obey everything he says? That would put kinda damper on things. I’ll probably be back.

    Dear Ms Naylor: My name is Carolyn and I LOVE your books! My question to you is . . . dude, seriously, what is up with Oren?? ;-P

  3. At what age did you know you wanted to write and how long have you had the idea for this series in your mind? How has the idea progressed since it clicked. Is it still what you imagined or has a taken a 180? (and does writing even work like that or does it just sorta happen? lol)

    How long does it take you to write a book? What sparked your interest in vampires? Who is your fav author to read? I love your books and have had friends become interested as well. Hope you continue this series 🙂

  5. If you were to start writing this series over again, is there anything you would change in the books or overall plot line for the series?

    Will there be a werewolf, zombie or some other paranormal character(s) that show up to play a significant them vs. vampires scenario? (No, I’m not talking about a Jacob, Edward, and Bella Twilight love triangle. ;))

    How many books do you think this series will be? (I think I asked this before but can’t remember the answer.)

  6. sorry some of my questions were for Katelina no Ms Naylor

  7. Plotter or pantser? Do you create an outline for yourself, or do your characters tell their stories as the chapters progress? If you do use an outline, how closely do you stick to it?

    Who’s your favorite character to write. I know they’re like children, but I’m guessing some play nicer than others. 😉

    What made you decide to write in the third person?

    You work on so many things! How much time are you able to devote to your latest novel?

    How long did you play with your characters before you wrote Shades of Gray?

    What are the most difficult scenes for you to write?

    Of the three Ameranthine stories, pick one of your favorite scences, and tell us why you enjoyed writing it.

  8. I’d like to know where she got all that talent from;)

  9. I have already interviewed the author, so I don’t have any more questions… but I look forward to read what she has to say! 😀
    Go get her, Katelina!

  10. Can’t wait for the interview. Sounds fun.
