Today I'd like to welcome the lovely Kharisma Rhayne to Labelle Books. Kharisma is on the hot seat answering our questions, she shares a little about her new release Bound by Seduction, and has graciously offered up a giveaway to one lucky commenter.
* Please don't forget to follow the blog and leave your email address when you comment for a chance to win.*
How long have you been an author?
Kharisma: I didn’t get published until this past November, however I’ve written forever and kept it all to myself.
Congratulations on your success. What is your favourite genre?
Kharisma: I love most everything, but lately I have been stuck on Highlander and Viking erotic romance.
I'm with you there, but I'm also into pirates, cowboys, bad boys... Oh hell, the list is never ending you get the point. *snickers* sounds like the two of us have some of the same reading interests.
What is the biggest surprise you’ve discovered about the writing process?
Kharisma: I don’t know that it’s really a surprise, but I’ve found the waiting is my biggest surprise. I just don’t do it well and I really thought I would. I want my official blurbs accepted; I want my shiny new covers, my edits and release dates – yesterday. ☺ So, I need to work on my patience.
Most authors feel that way. The waiting process can certainly be a stressful experience. Can you tell us about one of your current works in progress?
Kharisma: I have quite a few WIPs. But I think the one I’m most excited about right now is my Viking Series. Book 1 in the series is called Heart of Vengeance. I want to give Berserkers a touch of their actual history (of being feared and shunned within their villages) but I want to show it turned around and them be the heroes I feel they should have been for protecting their villages.
Styrkar’s sister had been kidnapped from their own land. Never had he thought refusing an offer of marriage for her from a rival clan would cause such a dangerous outcome. Styrkar and his son, Alrik gather their men to invade and safely bring his sister back home – unwed. Little do they know, Alrik’s heart will be captured by a striking blonde woman that is his sworn enemy. Will their clans cease to feud anyway?
You can find out more about the series (and blurbs for the first four books) here: http://kharismarhaynebooks.blogspot.com/p/untitled-viking-series.html
We'll definitely have to check that out. It sounds like a great read! If you had a warning label, what would it say?
Kharisma: “Caution: Will try anything once”
Awesome, If you had the chance to meet one of your characters privately, who would it be and what would you do?
Kharisma: Xander from my Living Deadly Series – my hot Greek warrior – come on now, I’m an erotic writer – I’d have to work on a *scene* with him for an upcoming book.
lol, great answer. What is the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?
Kharisma: I guess it would depend on who you ask. Some people think my language and bluntness is terribly bad – others think the fact that I kissed a girl years ago on a bar bet was the naughtiest. I’m thinking, you have to by naughty to have a little fun though.
Agreed, If you could choose to time travel, would you go backward or forward, and why?
Kharisma: I would go back. I always feel like I belong in a different century. I’m obsessed with Viking, Highlander and Ancient Greece history.
