Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
Today I'd like to welcome author Kylie Scott to the blog. She's here to answer some questions about her new book Lick. I don't normally do blog tours, but as you can tell from my review, this is a very special book. **Also, look out for the giveaway details at the end of this post.**
I'm sure in your blog tour you will be asked a lot of questions about Evelyn and David but I wanted to focus today on one of the secondary characters who really stood out for me. What can you tell me about Kaetrin? She's not in the book all that much, but she's a total scene stealer.
I know right? I think in a way Kaetrin really carried the book. It’s subtle, but it’s there.
Kaetrin seems very popular with the band. Why do you think that is and does it have anything to do with the flexibility gained from years of yoga?
I think her being a Yoga Master certainly plays a part in that, as does her being a gold medal equestrian. But you can’t forget about her degrees in Psychology, Renaissance Poetry and Astro Physics. She’s a great all rounder. A polymath, really.
Kaetrin ROCKS a red dress. What is her beauty secret?
She so rocks a red dress. The years Kaetrin spent living in Paris as head designer for a fashion house (after turning her back on a successful career as a super model) truly paid off when it comes to working a dress. She does it with just that perfect dash of panache. Also, she can really pull it off. Kaetrin can get out of a dress in under 0.2 seconds. The woman is remarkable in so many ways.
Will we see more of Kaetrin (and I'm not just talking about her enhanced rack here) in future books? Could a slutty groupie ever get a HEA of her own? (Obviously, I mean slutty in the sex-positive way).
I think free spirited open minded sexually aggressive women deserve a HEA just as much as the next girl. No decisions have been made about future heroines. I’ll keep you informed.
Can Kaetrin sing? Could she possibly get a job as a backup singer for Stage Dive and go with them on their next tour?
Kaetrin doesn’t like to brag, but her years of touring with the Metropolitan Opera honed her vocal talents like you wouldn’t believe. As for touring with Stage Dive, who knows...
How many books are planned for the Stage Dive series (and will Kaetrin feature in all of them)?
To my mind, Stage Dive is Kaetrin. I don’t believe the band could even entertain the possibility of going on without her presence.
I probably should ask you something about David and Evelyn (even though I really want to know more about Kaetrin...) so, was there a real life rock star inspiration for David? (I was kind of thinking of a (younger) Nick Cave/Tex Perkins type character myself)
Ooh, you have some good taste there, girl. No, I didn’t really base him on any one rock star in particular. Band wise, I had Eskimo Joe and Kings of Leon in mind, mostly.
Evelyn is described as tall, with generous curves (which David seems to like just fine). She struck me as someone with a positive body image, comfortable in her own skin for the most part. Was this a deliberate decision or did Evelyn just appear to you that way from the start?
That was a deliberate decision. I think body image for women is, to an extent, always an issue. But particularly during our younger years when we’re still struggling with our identity in so many ways. Plus, I like throwing a seemingly “average” girl into an extraordinary situation and seeing what happens. Her having a few lumps and bumps (like the bulk of us do) was a part of that.
