Divine Touch

by Kristy Denice Bock

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

INTERVIEW:

Interview Questions

1. What or who inspired you to start writing?

I get asked this question often and it never fails to stump me. I’m pretty sure as a child, I told stories with words, acting them out with my sisters for make believe audiences. As I got older, I used different creative outlets to give my stories life. What inspired me to write, was a need to entertain others, and to provide an escape from the mundane. That and I do love being the center of attention.
2. How did you come up with ideas for your books?

Ugh, I’m failing this interview and its only question 2! I honestly have no idea. It can be a beautiful sunny day, and I’m sitting on the beach with a drink, and bam, my mind will start dreaming of epic battle scenes with weapons that I’ll have to google later to name. As a matter of fact, there is a scene in Divine Touch where Zane turns into a monster for the first time in front of Kate, and I thought that up while sitting in a Greek restaurant arguing over gratuity with my teenage daughter.
What expertise did you bring to your writing?

A creative mind and the ability to learn new things quickly. That’s about it. The rest came through trial and error.
4. As far as your writing goes, what are your future plans?

I’d really like to write more of the Divine Ones series, there are so many characters in them that I feel have more to say. I’d love to see the Goddesses in action more often. If anyone needs their own story, Noxia does. I’m also working on a few standalone stories.
5. If you could be one of the characters from any of your books, who would it be and why?

I would be the Goddess Noxia, because I secretly do want to rule the world. She’s the supreme Goddess of the universe, and hot. She can make men grovel, and money appear with thought. I’m telling you, that’s the life right there.
7. Do you belong to a critique group? If so how does this help or hinder your writing?

I used to, I belonged to the Internet Writing Workshop. They are a tremendous group of people who taught me what a true value feedback had. I learned how to organize my thoughts in a way that made sense to normal thinking humans.
8. When did you first decide to submit your work? Please tell us what or who encouraged you to take this big step?

I’m pretty sure the first place I submitted Divine Touch was Wild Rose publishing. It wasn’t enough of a love story for them though, then I went with the now defunct Red Rose Publishing. All of this was going to be a stepping stone, of course, because I wanted to write for Harlequin Romance in the worst way. (Except, I actually am not very good at the whole coloring in the lines when creating a love story) My characters fall in love, but that’s not the focal point of the story. I never did learn this.
9. What is the best and worst advice you ever received? (regarding writing or publishing)

Best: Read what you write, out loud, in front of a mirror. When you are actively engaged in a story, the writing is fluid. When you watch your mouth and stare at the mirror, the story is fractured.

Worst: Show don’t tell. This dandy piece of advice is regurgitated often without truly explaining what it means. So yeah, I spent over 1000 words once describing sitting down in a chair.
10. Do you outline your books or just start writing?

I think about outlining, does that count? I just can’t stick to it. My characters will suddenly die, or kill someone else, or wipe out an entire town for revenge. They aren’t all that subtle when they want to do things their way.
11. Do you have any hobbies and does the knowledge you’ve gained from these carry over into your characters or the plot of your books?

In a standalone that I’m working on called ‘For Seriously’, the lead character likes to sing karaoke. Each time I go back and read that scene, I get a little squealish and think about how much I like doing it.
12. Do you have an all time favorite book?

Fahrenheit 451
13. Have you started your next project? If so, can you share a little bit about your book?

I’m currently working on three books. The first being the fourth in the Divine Ones series. For someone familiar with the series, it’s Ember’s story. Ember is in Divine Touch, as well as in Divine Intervention and Divine Purpose. She’s my all around favorite character, so I’m very excited to give her the lead for a change.

BLURB:

 

Finding a naked man where Werewolf bones once were should have let Kate know she was in for an unusual day! Nothing could have prepared her for the discovery that her mother is a Goddess, and that nothing in her life would ever be the same. Zane DeSeville spent five centuries trapped in a prison of his own body only to be awakened by the image of the woman who caused his entrapment. After Kate discovers that she’s the daughter of a Goddess, another bombshell is dropped in her lap. She has to pass three Trials of Humanity, or she’ll be imprisoned as Zane had been, and Zane would be her judge and jury!

EXCERPT:

 

Kate found her way to the Kitchen. She found Holland walking around the room with a cell phone in her hand, extended as she moved about trying to find signal.

 

“Can you hear me now?” Kate asked.

 

“Kate! I was ready to call in the military.” Holland launched herself at Kate, hugging her tight.

 

“Holls, you are choking me,” Kate said, her ribs still sore from their earlier abuse.

 

“Don’t care. Save it. What the fuck is going on?” Kate hid a smile, Holland’s language always left something to be desired.

 

“I missed you. I was promised chocolate ice cream, a sappy movie and you. Never let it be said the Goddess doesn’t answer prayers.” Kate took a step away from Holland and picked up the Ice cream she spied on the table next to them.

 

“Who is the walking magnet?” Holland asked.

 

“His name is Cole,” Kate answered.

 

“What’s his deal?”

 

“I don’t know, why?”

 

“He’s got a nice ass.”

 

“He’s like twelve years old!”

 

“He’s 28.”

 

“No way, how do you know?”

 

“Because I asked him right after I told him he had a nice ass.”

 

“You told him that?”

 

“What good is thinking something if it’s not shared?”

 

“Does he really have a nice behind?”

 

“How did I get here?”

 

“The Goddess brought you for me. I have so much to tell you. Ice cream first, find bowls.”

 

Kate walked around the kitchen and opened one at a time until she found decorative wooden bowls which would do quite nicely for their frozen treat. She placed them on the counter and searched again for a scoop and two spoons. After the dessert found its way into the bowls Kate hopped up on the countertop and motioned for Holland to do the same. The two ate in silence for a few moments before Kate spoke. Kate relayed the story starting with how she picked up the shipment meant for her ex-husband.

 

“He called me by the way,” Holland said.

 

“Kevin?” asked Kate.

 

“What a vile toad. The sex must have been phenomenal because his personality leaves so much to be desired.”

 

“He is, it wasn’t, it does… And what did he say?”

 

“Blah blah blah, random threat, blah blah blah, knows what you really are, mayhem, devastation, destruction.”

 

“I doubt he knows what I just found out today. At best he’d seem like a lunatic raving how his ex-wife is a witch.”

 

“Want me to run him over? I have full coverage.”

 

“I have enough to deal with at the moment. Kevin is the least of my concerns. I have a vengeful witch who tried to blow me up, three trials that could end in possible annihilation if I fail, and a werewolf that I can’t quite figure out what to do with. Not to mention, my mother’s a Goddess. A Goddess. Talk about a readymade complex.”

 

“So many things to be shocked over, so little time.” Holland stated.

 

“I guess it would be hard to take in. In one sitting I’ve told you of werewolves, Goddesses, and witches.” Kate replied.

 

“No, I meant why you would not call me the minute you found a naked man on the table. At the very least you could have sent me a few picture texts,” Holland said.

 

“I’m sorry for not thinking clearly at that moment.”

 

“I forgive you, but only if you forgive me for the confession I’m about to make.” Holland said.

 

“What confession?” Kate asked.

 

“I plan on seducing the walking magnet, pissing off the blond bombshell, and finding out the intentions of one really old werewolf.”

 

“He’s too young for you.”

 

“I’m one year older than you.”

 

“He’s too young for me too.”

 

“You take all the fun out of my life, what’s five years?”

 

“The difference between diapers and big boy pants.”

 

“You are a sick, sick woman, Kate.”

 

“I know”

      The craziest thing? hmm. Once I stood outside holding a welcome home sign, in the rain, for six hours because a bus was late. I live in NC so when it rains it may as well be dumping buckets! What about you?
