Who Doesn't Need to be Shot by LOVE?! An Interview with Kallie Ross #Dynamis

Kallie Ross Polka Dot 2An Interview with Kallie Ross

*What would you be doing right now if you were not an author? Since I’m currently bringing home the bacon as a teacher, I’m thinking it would still be my full-time gig. My dream job entails being a super spy, disguised as the lead singer of a rock band on a world tour. 
*5 years ago: what were you doing? I was wifing, mommying, teaching, and podcasting about a little franchise called Twilight. It’s weird how it all came to be, but my sister and I had the best time talking about books we loved and meeting some awesome peeps in Hollywood.
*Do you have a certain writing ritual? My writing habits evolve with each book. The most interesting is probably my outlining process. I do this weird circle outline that baffles every writer I show it to. I also have to step away from writing every so often to do something visually creative. Painting is a great way for me to refuel!
*What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? I think it’s hard for any author to hear/read criticism. I get that everyone won’t love my stories. I’ve only had one harsh review, and it was tough because the person was tactless. I believe we can all be honest and have some finesse.

*Ever fangirled over another author? Who was it?

Well, I’ve been avoiding fangirling Lila Felix, so she’ll think I’m cool. I kept my cool when meeting Stephenie Meyer, Veronica Roth, and Cassandra Clare, so I’m pretty confident in my ability to hold all the fangirling in until I can squee in the privacy of my own home. 

*Is there an author you'd like to meet? I would ugly cry if I met J.K. Rowling. 
*Biggest writing pet peeve? I have a huge problem with info dumps in flashbacks. Ugh. 
* Do you read other's reviews of your books? Not anymore. I used to sneak a peek, but now my husband or friends take care of it!


Supernatural Chronicles: The Cupids

Evelyn Bowden, at nineteen, sacrificed herself for Tate Gallier. Her act inspired the gods to deem her immortal as a cupid. Now, she’s been assigned to apprentice with Andel Lambros, a 200 year-old heavenly archer that looks 24. The purpose of the cupids is easy enough for the newbie to understand, and to resent. But the significance of their work doesn’t have time to sink in when Evelyn is given her first assignment. Cupid elders have received a message and need their newest, least experienced, comrade-in-arms—Evelyn—to retrieve an arrow. That means she must release a mortal from an everlasting love. When she discovers the arrow is fastened to none other than her own love, Tate’s heart, Evelyn battles with letting him go. The century old war for love may be lost if Evelyn doesn’t gear up to save them all. Being a cupid takes more than a bow and some arrows. Evelyn is challenged to deliver her arrow, let go of her first love, and trust an ancient brooding cupid with her existence. Giving up her lost love’s arrow as an offering will be more painful than getting hit by a streetcar, and she knows how that feels since it’s what started the whole predicament. Will Evelyn be able to keep her covenant to her fellow cupids? Will she save them all or lose everything trying?

I may be worthy of becoming a Cupid, but what if I don't want to spend an eternity assisting the one thing I can't have?
