Interview with Kaytlyn Williams


Hey y'all! Today I have Kaytlyn Williams visiting with me. She's answering some question and telling us about her latest release! So come on in, grab a pretty drink-the blue one is mine lol-and kick back!

Okay, all the drinks are pretty cool looking lol! Now on to the good stuff...



~ What was your favorite character to write, and why?
In Hero, Oliver was my favorite character to write because I feel like he evolves the most. He sort of comes to his own and that was a lot of fun for me to write.



~ You’re marooned on a small island with one person and one item of your choice—who is that person and what item do you have? 
I kind of have to pick my husband. I’m pretty sure it’s in the fine print of the marriage license. And as for the item, satellite phone. Duh. So we can call to be rescued!



~ Take one of your stories and tell us what you would change about it if you would do it over again.
Easy, I’ve already done it. The first story I ever posted on Literotica. I wish it would die. I had it deleted from the site, but my worst nightmare is it popping up again somewhere. I want to kill it with fire.



~ When do you do your best writing… morning, afternoon, evening, night?
Definitely at night because the house is quiet and the puppy is asleep in my lap. I don’t function in the morning.







~ Who’s your favorite horror villain and why?
I am a horrible person who doesn’t really watch horror movies so I can’t answer that.





~Is there anything you’d like to tell? Maybe something in the works, or already out, you would like to promote?  Feel free!
I’d like to encourage everyone to check out my Naughty Fairy Tale through Evernight. It’s not my usual M/M, but I feel like it’s a lot of fun. Seven drag queens. What could possibly beat that?


~ What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
I got called a bitch once on Literotica because I posted a chapter without sex in it. I had to just laugh it off, but I have to say I was shocked because that’s the first time I’ve ever been called a name like that over writing.
(Had to chime in here lol. I met Kaytlyn at Lit a while back. I know where she's coming from... I got told I had 'balls down to my knees' for something I posted there LOL. That's still my fav comment!)
But I have to say the best compliment came anonymously. Someone told me that every LGBT youth should read one of my stories. I just about cried at that one. That’s how I know I’m doing well. It’s not about money or how many books I can churn out or who knows my name. It’s really about making people feel something.


And now on to the hot cover she has lol!!

Blurb:

Aaron is a soldier preparing to deploy for the first time. During the process, he meets Oliver. There is an instant connection. The entire time that Aaron is overseas, the two continue to think of each other and wonder what could have been.
Upon Aaron’s return, fate brings the two together again. Lust ignites a beautiful love.  However, in the Army change is bound to happen and relationships are put to the test. Hero follows the story of a brave couple facing the challenges of a military relationship.

Excerpt:

“Do I get a chance for a second date?” Aaron asked.

Oliver gripped the handle of the driver’s side door of his silver Prius. “Yeah, I’d like that.”

Oliver became suddenly aware of how close Aaron was to him. The tall soldier put his hand on Oliver’s hip. “I’m glad,” he said. His voice, eyes, his whole demeanor was seductive.
Oliver didn’t feel like he could breathe. He could feel the heat coming from the man. He wanted Aaron to kiss him. “You…you could kiss me,” he whispered, surprising himself.
Aaron smiled and gently caressed Oliver’s cheek. Oliver felt himself getting lightheaded as those full lips approached his. When they kissed, Oliver’s knees went weak. His lips parted and Aaron’s tongue gently probed into his mouth. Being in Aaron’s arms was everything Oliver had imagined it would be. He was sure that if Aaron asked, he would do anything the soldier wanted right there in the parking lot.
Aaron pulled away from the kiss and Oliver followed, stumbling forward into Aaron’s arms. Oliver could feel himself blushing. He finally regained the ability to stand on his own and stumbled back against his car door.
“You’re damn cute,” Aaron said. He kissed Oliver’s forehead. “Can I get your number?”
Oliver rattled off the digits, still feeling a bit lightheaded.
Aaron smiled. “You have a good night, sweetheart.”
****
Aaron kept the mental image of Oliver after their first kiss in his mind as he settled down to sleep. For the first time since returning home, he slept with no nightmares.
He felt invigorated the next morning and got in an excellent work out. He was feeling so good that he called his mother. He knew she’d been worrying about him after the week he’d spent visiting on leave. He hoped that she felt better after their conversation. Aaron didn’t want his mother to worry. He didn’t mention Oliver to her yet, feeling it was too soon for that. When he hung up the phone, he was confident that his mom would be reassured.

Aaron took advantage of his good mood and started to run errands. He got his hair cut and went grocery shopping for the first time since getting back. He watched the clock. He didn’t want to call Oliver while the young man was at work and he also didn’t want to appear desperate. He decided that sometime in the evening would be best. It was hard not to stare at his watch as the minutes ticked by. Aaron was anxious to set up another date. His mind was glued on the little moments from the night before, like how his skin tingled when their fingers brushed over the chips and salsa and how Oliver had blushed at that every time, even when it became clear Aaron was doing it on purpose. There was something in Oliver’s eyes and the way he smiled that made Aaron feel like a human being again, instead of just some pawn in a war that was bigger than him.

****

Oliver spent the entire day wondering if Aaron would actually call. After getting off work, he turned the ringer on his cell phone all the way up, just so he wouldn’t miss the call. Around six, he got a little nervous. He felt a bit foolish, waiting for the call like he was. Aaron hadn’t specified that he would be calling today. Oliver knew he shouldn’t get all worked up.

He couldn’t figure out what it was Aaron saw in him. The man was undeniably gorgeous and yet had ignored the advances of the man at the next table to the point that Oliver wondered if Aaron had noticed it at all. Aaron had a way of making Oliver feel comfortable, which was no easy task. Then, there was that wonderful kiss that had absolutely swept Oliver away. He had to admit, he’d had his head in the clouds ever since, but it was time to come down. Oliver didn’t think the call would be coming.

Just when he was about to give up, his phone rang.
