Author Interview – Katie Salidas – “The Immortalis”, “Olde Town Pack”, “Little Werewolf” & RONE Award Winning “Chronicles of the Uprising” (Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance & Horror)

Howdy everyone.

Here I am again to kick off the week with another exciting individual, who has many different series for you book lovers to dive right into.

May I present to you all multi-genre and award winning author Katie Salidas, as we have the pleasure of her company today to find out all about her award winning writing, amazing stories, her creative passions and writing inspirations.

Enjoy the show folks and let’s banish those Monday Blues 🙂

 

Hi there Katie, a pleasure to have you over here with us today to chat about all of your amazing genre blending books.

Happy to be here and thank you so much for inviting me along to chat with you and your readers.

Let’s start with your various different series under your own name – The “Immortalis” series, “Olde Town Pack” series, “Little Werewolf” series, “ and RONE award-winning “Chronicles of the Uprising” series. Can you tell us a bit more about each of them, their story arcs and the challenges that your protagonists face across each of the series in the course of their thrilling adventures.

I’m going to do my best to be spoiler-free here with my answers, so I hope you don’t feel I’m being too vague.

In all the novels I write, I take my inspiration from what my favourite author did. Anne Rice was the first that I know of to take a traditional “monster” and give them a real life. She, through her Vampire Chronicles, gave us vampires that were less monstrous than the bloodthirsty creatures of old, and replaced them with thinking and feeling creatures trying to make their way through immortality. I loved that. And that is where I drew my inspiration. In each of my various series you will meet characters who are supernatural by nature but often times are more human than the people they are around.

Take my award-winner, Chronicles of the Uprising. This series has been described as Hunger Games meets Underworld. A dystopian and paranormal mashup that places supernatural creatures squarely in the role of the underdog, fighting for their very survival. With themes taken straight from history on how humanity has treated prisoners and slaves (particularly in the Roman era), you get a glimpse of just how brutal humans can and have been through history. While reading, you just might find yourself rooting for their demise. In a way it really mirrors current society with blatant prejudice, classism, and political corruption, but does it in a fictional way using supernatural creatures as a filter to make it more palatable (and less preachy) for readers.

In the Immortalis, my first novel series, I took from popular tropes in the vampire genre for inspiration, and tried to base those ideas in reality. Being supernatural is not easy. It’s not glamourous. It’s hard! The adjustment from human to vampire, while still trying to hold on, to what you feel made you a good person, is a struggle every other author glosses over, so I wanted to give readers a first-hand look at the possibility of it (along with a vampire girl who is just terrible at being a vampire).

In the Little Werewolf Series, arguably my most popular in the YA genre, I explored what it might be like to grow up thinking yourself a freak. Most teen girls worry about a certain monthly visitor, but not one that makes them sprout fur and a big bushy tail. To make matters worse, this particular girl was lost as a baby and spent her entire life in the foster care system, never finding a home because of her supernatural nature. So the Little Werewolf books really take an emotional look at being different and learning to cope with it, while allowing room to trust others and maybe even find love.

You also have other works published in the Romance genre with a naughty side under your alter ego Rozlyn Sparks, having made a name for yourself as a USA Today best-selling author. Please spill the beans regarding these novels, tell us what saucy tales/series you have available that are going to get our pulses racing as soon as we flip them open and get stuck into them.

Sometimes it’s fun to be a little naughty. What can I say? And using my alter ego as a platform for it allows me to play within the more racy genres without compromising the brand created by my real name. As I said above, there is a very clear theme to the books I write as Katie. And readers come to expect certain things from certain brands. So with Rozlyn, I have a bit more freedom to play around with themes, levels of eroticism, and even genres. Not all of my Rozlyn Sparks stories are paranormal and each book under that name really stands on its own. I have some co-written works in the darker erotic genres alongside of my paranormal romances. That is my playground, if you’d like to call it that. And my book, One Night With A Vampire, which was featured in the Secret Worlds anthology in 2016 earned Rozlyn Sparks her USA Today letters.

If your novels were to be made into films (or even a TV series), who would you cast in the lead roles?

I have so many dream cast ideas for my Chronicles series. That one is truly my baby, and the one I feel would translate best to the big screen. If I could have my way I’d cast the following roles:

Mira – Mila Kunis.
Lucian – Matthew Davis.
Tegan – Norman Reedus.
George – Charles Michael Davis.
Olivia – Claire Holt.
Mathias – John Goodman.

What do you find the most difficult thing about writing? And what do you find the easiest?

There are two types of writers out there. And though there are a million shades of grey between us, we all identify with either being a pantser or a plotter.

I am a pantser by nature. I need to experience the story organically as I write it. That means I go in without a defined plot. But, because I said there are varying shades of grey, I’m not going in without an idea. I have, what equates to a to-do list for my characters. I know the story needs to hit certain elements but how the characters get there is always a blind road.

So, that said, writers block is terrifying. There are days where I could sit at the computer and not know what to write. And, on the other side, there are days where I can fly through chapter after chapter with my characters. The difficult part is balancing those days on a deadline.

Who are some of the authors and historical figures that inspire you?

As I said above, Anne Rice really was my guru in a sense. I loved what she did so much that when I began to write my first story (back in 1995) I really took to heart what she did for supernatural creatures. Sadly, that story, written on my old Apple IIc computer and saved on floppy disks (the big ones that were actually floppy) were destroyed in my move across country when my parents brought our family to Nevada. That setback, coupled with my angsty teenage years, caused me to stop writing for a while. I did not write another novel until around ten years later.

ImmortalisSeries

What sort of research do you do to write your books?

You never want to look at an author’s search history. You don’t want to know why we research decomposition rates of human corpses or how fast chloroform works. We have to do our due diligence when writing so that our novels are as realistic as possible.

Fiction may be fantasy but readers have to be willing to allow our stories to take them out of the real world and slip ups that make them stop reading (because they know something is wrong) work against you.

I’ve scared myself with some of the things I’ve researched. And some things have made me cry. When researching the foster care system for my Little Werewolf books, I ended up locating charities to donate clothing to because I learned that many children have little more than the clothes on their backs, and when they are returned to the system from a home that could not foster them (for whatever reason) they don’t get to take all the things that foster family might have bought for them. All those toys and clothes remain in the home, not with the kids. It’s heart-breaking, but part of the research I had to do to make my characters transition into her new home plausible.

Why do you write? What inspired you to become a writer?

The short answer is catharsis mixed with an overactive imagination. In part, working on stories helps me work through the frustrations in life. Cheating husband: how about we make a character that gets caught in the act. There is a meme floating around the internet that says writers don’t get mad, they just put you in their next story as the victim. There is a lot of truth to that.

But on the other side, having an overactive imagination means I’m always asking “what if,” and then answering that through a story.

Writers, in general, love to tell a story. That’s why we do it.

What keeps you motivated during creative slumps? How do you deal with Writers Block?

In truth, I sometime spend hours staring at a blank screen wondering if I will ever write again. And then there are times when I have a spark of an idea and no way to write it down. The short answer is, you just have to make yourself do something.

On the days where I’m really stuck for words, I might ask myself interview questions about a character and hope that in answering them I get inspired.

And some days are just plain failures for word count. It happens.

You have access to a time machine. What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t give up. And maybe have a few backups of that first story. I would love to be able to go back and read that first manuscript I wrote. Twenty years later, I hardly remember the plot, but I do remember loving the story. That feeling stuck with me.

Paranormal Posse Katie Salidas

How do you spend your free time when you are not writing?

Trying desperately to sleep. And that is the god’s honest truth. I have three kids. So basically between them and writing, I don’t ever get enough sleep.

I love my babies so I try to spend as much non-writing time as I can focusing on them. Right now we are prepping my middle child for Kindergarten in the fall, working on reading!! I’m so proud of his progress.

Tell us more about your upcoming projects. Are you working on anything specific or have plans in the pipeline?

I’m never without something to write. On the schedule for 2017 is the 3rd book in my Olde Town Pack series. I didn’t go into detail about that one above as it is a crossover series using characters from my Little Werewolf world and my Immortalis series world. The Olde Town is all about the romance, so each book gives you a little insight into a specific character and their newly-forming relationship.

After that, there is the 4th book in the Little Werewolf series to finish. Giselle will be graduating and starting to take on a more important role in the pack she’s become part of.

I’m also co-writing an adaptation story in my Chronicles world. This one will not be part of the main series, which is finished at 6 books, but will be about one of the important characters in the series and their specific role in the new world order. That one has no Publishing date, but I’d expect to see it before the end of the year.

Finally, are there any nuggets of wisdom that you can impart to other aspiring writers?

Just Keep Writing.

Simple and effective. We are writers because we want to tell a story, so don’t let the business side of it get you down. Do what you love, and just keep writing.

And that’s a wrap! It has been really fun to get to know you better and find out more about all of the incredible worlds and series you have created, they are going to keep us busy for quite a while, that is for sure 🙂

Thanks again for having me along. It has been a pleasure!

    *** Hello there…I have a question for you….Why do you keep leaving the above kind of reply to some of my posts? They make no sense to me and I have not approved any of them. Looks like you are spamming me. When I visit your blog, you seem to have a very wonderful thing gong for yourself. Will you explain what your comments mean? Thanx for your time, ren ***

    • Hi there Ren. I link to a lot of posts that participate in the the WordPress Daily Prompt. The reason that you see the numbers is that one of your posts is featured every time I list all of these links, which result in pingbacks. By not approving my posts, you are actually limiting the opportunity for people to visit my blog when I am generating opportunities for people to visit your blog. Since you know that my blog is not a spamming website then it would be in your best interests to approve my pingbacks to help build a bridge between our posts and you can gain more followers for your blog. Hope this helps and have a great day 🙂 David

      • David…you rock! Thank you very much for explaining. I had no idea! This is all new to me, which is why I approached you about it. Forgive my ignorance please….”the fool does not know they are a fool!” I will go into my admin and start past-approving.
        Thank you again for taking the time to explain this to me, it is greatly appreciated…ren
