Today I get the pleasure of interviewing S K Anthony for her sequel to Kinetic, Static.
When I first talked to her about the idea for an interview she was in the full swing of her book release so I promised her to only give relatively easy questions.
So here they are.
BA - What is your favorite type of wine?
SK - I really don’t discriminate against wine. If it has grape, it’s fine :P Umm, okay, you want the serious answer? Here goes: I like Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Merlot, white Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Burgundy, Sauvignon Blanc, on and on and on . . .
BA - Hey I know what two of those are, lol. Since we are talking about drinking anyway, if you could vacation anywhere in the world where would it be?
SK - Good one there, Old Chap! I’d bloody love to travel around London! (Man, I butchered that . . . but, eh?)
BA - No we can just think of Harry Potter and the voice works well. Favorite movie?
SK - Apart from The Lord of the Ring Trilogy (can’t choose just one), my favorite is The Luminaries movie, coming soon. Not really, but it would be my favorite if I made some $$ off it, plus the honor and all that BS.
BA - Hey I would go see that, plus afterward you would want to celebrate so that leads to my next question. Favorite dessert?
SK - Brownie a la mode! And cake. And cake. And cake.
BA - You forgot to mention cake. Also anything warm you put ice cream on is awesome...O_O. Do you have plans for books outside of The Luminaries?
SK - Well what kinda writer would I be if I didn’t? I have about six of them fighting in my head at any given time. So yes, the answer is yes. YES.
BA - I guess you would be a writer with one series, :P. I know what you mean though those ideas are always coming, if only we had clones to write them. Any other genres you might want to write in?
SK - MG and erotica, but maybe not together. Kidding! MG, YA, Contemporary Romance, Paranormal, and Dystopian . . . and yes, I have ideas written down for each.
BA - Yes together would be bad, lol. Well all the talk about ideas, but the hardest part is getting it finished and what comes after. Any advice on what people should do once they have finished a manuscript?
SK - Throw it out and start again . . . err . . . well, given you and I both had to do this with our recent manuscripts, it seems legit. But really, I think putting it aside then coming back to it refreshed after a break is a good bet. We see things from a different perspective and that can sometimes be priceless ;)
BA -Yes we both did and that is awesome advice, S. Okay folks before I set S K free again I got to give you guys some info on her newest book.
Kevin Pierce is a teleporter, a ladies’ man, and a loyal friend . . . or so he thought.
As a genetically altered Luminary, he helps the government bring down some of the most dangerous criminals. Not very challenging if you have his special abilities. But when a group of rebel Luminaries attacks his Organization the fight for survival begins.
One shattering event after another tests the depth of his relationships, his sanity, and his powers. Emotionally torn, Kevin must choose carefully where his loyalty lies. In the middle of all the unexpected chaos he gets the biggest shock of his life when he’s faced by a betrayal he never saw coming. Angry, injured, and ready to even the score, Kevin goes Static . . .

Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.
Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.
A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything…
Can't forget the info on our lovely author!!

She is a wine connoisseur, which just really means she knows she loves it, and a caffeine addict. When she isn’t busy with her family, she finds herself being transported into the world of imagination. Well, either that or running away from spiders . . . she is convinced they are out to get her!
