Hi Lovely Ones,
It's another Fab Friday and we're featuring K. K. Harris again. Today, we're getting to know the woman behind those phenomenal Crown Royal on Ice Chronicles! I don't know about you, but she definitely grabbed my attention on last week with that awesome excerpt!
CHELLE: Drama or inspiration, which would you say characterizes your main character in this latest body of work?
K.K.: Inspiration definitely… In this book, the main character is put into couple’s lives to help them see the bigger picture, why they fell in love in the first place.
CHELLE: What has changed in your life since you were last with us?
K.K.: I separated the author, the blogger, mentor, formatter, and the cover designer. All are titles that I hold; I have decided to work on those projects one at a time. In my mind, that was the only way to get organized.
CHELLE: I need to learn from you. Talk to us about your current release "Crown Royal on Ice Chronicles."
K.K.: Crown Royal on Ice, is a series that I started simply to highlight some of the common causes for the lack of intimacy in a marriage. Intimacy plays a major part in a relationship and I’m not just talking about sex. There are so many other aspects to being intimate with one another and in this book; I plan to push the envelope a little bit. Of course, sex is also in the series but it wasn’t the main focus. Instead, it turned out to be one of the things the couples complained was missing.
CHELLE: What inspired you to create Crown Royal on Ice Chronicles?
K.K.: Life and that’s about the gist of it. I know many couples who crash, crumble, and fold under the pressures that come along with marriage.
CHELLE: What is your primary message you want readers to take away from this work?
K.K.: Not all problems can be solved, some issues are greater than others are but if both parties involved are on the same accord, it is possible to overcome the bad days.
CHELLE: What tips do you have for upcoming authors about organizing your family life around your writing routine?
K.K.: Do what’s best for you. I have been at this for a few years now and it’s not easy. If the desire is there and your determination is firm, you will make it work.
CHELLE: Well said and it's definitely worth the work. If your life were a novel, what would be the title and what movie title would it closely resemble?
K.K.: Off the top of my head, I would have to say ‘Better Left Untold.’ Honestly, any movie that involves a kid that felt unwanted and making one terrible decision after the next will basically sum up my past story.
CHELLE: Wow! That's heartbreaking, K.K. I believe sometimes we experience the trials in life that we do to share our testimony with others for encouragement. It definitely builds us stronger if we don't allow it to break us. Perhaps, you will tell your story one day and it will help someone heal, especially from the younger generation. That's all they need sometimes is to be inspired by someone else's life story and know that there's hope. On another note what was the last song you listened to on your playlist?
K.K.: Touch A Four Leaf Clover by Atlantic Starr
CHELLE: Hmmm...I have to listen to that, I'm not familiar with it. Share a little known fact about Kanika?
K.K.: I am a scatterbrain. Too many ideas will send me on a rampage. (Honesty is the best policy)
CHELLE: I want to break out singing Michael Jackson's "You Are Not Alone." LOL!!! Tyler Perry or Oprah Winfrey? Which would you like to meet and why?
K.K.: Tyler Perry because I have an idea for a television series but I’m sure it would be too real. It touches on some real life; we need to fix our community topics.
CHELLE: What influential writer in your genre do you most admire and why?
K.K.: Sylvia Hubbard is one of my favorites. She is a single mother handling her business on all sides. Since I used to be one, I know the struggle to make it happen. She accomplished quite a bit on her own in literary market.
CHELLE: If we were to look at your current Kindle or reading device lineup, what titles would we find?
K.K.: Too many too name but every book of EJ Brock’s, every book from Sylvia Hubbard, my own work (tell me I’m not the only one that likes to read my own stuff), and some of Brenda Jackson’s old work. (just to name a few)
CHELLE: There again it's time for me to start singing MJ's song. LOL!!! No, you aren't alone. I do have my books on my Kindle, but I seldom go back to read them. That's only because after all the rounds of writing and edits, I'm tired of looking at them and I need something fresh. Back to you though. Complete this sentence: The biggest mistake new writers make is___________________.
K.K.: Following the trend… It’s alright to think outside the box.
CHELLE: I agree. And better than that it's great to realize there isn't a box. Throw the danged thing in the trash! How much if any of your real life, or those you know are reflected in your books?
K.K.: Too much (that’s all I can say on the grounds that it may incriminate me, LOL.)
CHELLE: We live life beautifully inspired here, at The Beautifully Inspired Blog. Leave us with an inspirational post, comprised of three words.
K.K.: CELEBRATE YOUR VOICE
CHELLE: You heard the woman! I love that...celebrate your voice. Authors, poets, painters, singers, musicians, whatever your individual calling use your talents and gifts to express your individuality and embrace it!
